I was lucky to work with Karen, she is an amazing beading queen who made my crazy idea for a skeleton ribcage beaded top possible (shown below is a back view of the completed garment)

I was excited to see someone had taken a quick snap of my shoes from my collection backstage! and included it on the blog. YAY

the shoes are embellished with custom made ceramic mosaic ‘buttons’ that I had stitched onto the shoe, all the buttons are unique and the imagery comes from

my interpretation of the Frida Kahlo story. Thanks to Wendy for helping me with these 🙂

more exciting things to look at

on a rainy monday like this, there is nothing better than getting a warmed up with a skim latte and sitting in front of the computer screen looking at inspirational work. go to to view some of the other students work from our graduating year of UTS Design (Fashion and Textiles).

ps. leaving you with another beautiful shot of Amber from my collection shoot,

Also a big thank you to CONNIE CALTABIANO, KARIMA HAZIM, SANDRA KICEEC, DANIELA GIANNINI and most of all my fabulous nonna CATARINA FURIA… without these women none of this could have happened. They all continually support and inspire me, give me the strength to keep pushing forward… reassure me that I’m doing ok! keep me grounded, show me amazing amounts of love and generally make my life better. the amount of hours they all put in is quite insane.

and not to mention the 50 odd family and friends who showed up to the UTS graduate fashion show A to cheer for me!! its was truly amazing
