For as long as I can remember I have always known I wanted to be a fashion designer, sure there were other things I were interested in doing but only as a form of income. I want to have a job that could be considered a hobby; a job I love.
Only earlier this year have I really thought about what direction I want to take in the fashion industry, I have always wanted to do women's wear but have never put much thought into the area of I want to focus. I have often found myself designing every-day wear and cocktail/evening-wear and feel I will always design in these areas. I also discovered I have a fascination with blurring the lines between every-day wear and cocktail wear to create perhaps what was known as a 'Sunday's Best' look; remember when people used to dress up for Church or to go shopping for groceries? I'm talking gloves, hats, jewellery, handbag, heels and a beautiful dress or suit; all things one can associate with race-wear.
After entering into the Devonport, Hobart, Launceston, and Burnie Cup Fashions on the Field events with my own designs I feel I have found my calling in the fashion industry. As a designer I want to specialise in custom made and standard sized race wear, modern but classic race wear.
I want to design/style the whole outfit! The garment/s, gloves, bag, jewellery, shoes and of course the hat!
