New designer on the block

Well the time has come for Dream child No 1 to begin her degree.
She is studying Branded Fashion at the prestigious
 & her classes begin this week!!

These images are some of her designs & have all been created using garbage bags, melted & fused together to make strips of material to be cut up & created into amazing dresses.
She has spent a gap year studying a Cert 4 in design through TAFE  & working to save enough money to ensure she afford a life in Sydney.

She now has a lovely little apartment in Leichardt, a good part time job that will work around her timetable & she is ready to go....


I have to say I am very proud of her for setting a goal & working so very hard over the last 12months to  achieve it.
She worked lots of overtime, studied hard at TAFE & even now has taken on extra courses as she wants to be advanced at her pattern making skills.
She volunteered her time last year to work back stage at Newcastle Fashion week & is already working towards designs so she can enter that very same fashion show this year as an
 "emerging talent"

Folks, watch this space, you may get to witness the story of a famous Aussie designer unfold before your eyes :)
She is enthusiastic & driven, she loves her new big city life, she is confident & always enjoys meeting new people & most of all she loves adventure, I think she will have a ball over the next 3 yrs.
I am SUPER excited to see where life will take her!!
Love you to the moon & back GP  xxx
