How would you describe your personal style? Any emerging Aussie brands you’re loving at the moment?
Simple and clean – it’s easier to pack that way while I’m on the move- but I do love pops of colour. I’m excited for Camilla (@camillawithlove). She designs beautiful pieces with such vibrant colours and prints! The show is always so fun, and the set and environment is beautifully done. Camilla also has a charity that cater to girls education, The Butterfly Effect. There’s nothing more beautiful than that- females supporting females and their rise in education. I love a woman who continually reaches for what she wants- the want to thrive. That is Camilla to me.
The book that has shaped you the most?
A Thousand Splendid Suns. It’s a story about poor, uneducated women living, growing up, and surviving in a third world country during the time of the war. They experience hardships throughout the book that the author, Hosseini, paints reality so well for the readers to understand their lives- and through the hardships these women become best of friends. There is actually so much love and support within the darkness of what they called life.
Finally, what’s up next for you?
