My apologies to everyone as it seems this post unfortunately had a glitch a few weeks ago!!
Earlier this year in January I was fortunate enough to attend the opening launch of Diane von Furstenberg’s “Journey Of A Dress” exhibit in Los Angeles. The launch was to celebrate 40 years of Diane’s signature wrap dress and I’m so honoured to collaborate and continue these celebrations with DVF. I grew up with my mum adoring DVF’s wrap dresses, to which she then passed on to me. I have both my personal appreciation for how the dress makes me feel, but also how I have always seen my mum’s confidence blossom while wearing one. It is a testament to Diane that not only is the wrap dress a timeless piece, but also an age irrelevant one.
The video below is my interpretation and celebration of my “Journey Of A Dress” from London and Melbourne, to home in Sydney. I have been extremely fortunate to travel to far away corners of this world, but nothing means more to me then coming home to my family, and especially to my mum. I would have never started my blog if it wasn’t for her hard work ethic, unwavering support and understanding of my wandering. She is still the first person I call for advice or comfort from the other side of the world. My journey would never have started if it wasn’t for her. Love you mum xx
