I am very proud to be Australian, both personally and professionally! I have been in the fashion industry for nearly a decade (time flies!), and in that time it has been really rewarding to see our local designers grow and become internationally recognised.
I have always loved supporting emerging designers, so I am thrilled to be able to be involved with the BT Emerging Fashion Designer Awardand help raise awareness and financial donations for Dress to Success Sydney.
Dress to Success Sydney is a charity I very much admire. They help disadvantaged women find employment through providing professional work attire, coaching and mentoring services.
On the 11th of April, BT will host BT Runway 2019 showcasing leading designers, Bianca Spender, Camilla and Marc, Carla Zampatti, Dion Lee, Ginger & Smart, Manning Cartelland Rachel Gilbert. It is at this event, BT will announce the winner of the 2019 BT Emerging Fashion Designer Award.
On Tuesday morning, after our morning caffeine hit, we shot in Little Bay on film. Shooting a mixture of our leading designers and the finalists of the award, A.CBH, Blair Archibald and Aaizel.
