I have been working as a full time milliner since 2015.
All my pieces are designed and created by me in my Williamstown studio.
My Grandmother was a milliner so I like to think it’s in my DNA!
I have an extensive wooden block collection and each piece is lovingly blocked before being hand stitched with the utmost of patience, care and love - and hopefully a sense of fun!
My work has featured on numerous catwalks, magazines and Fashions on the Field (FOTF) - I’ve had the thrill of having one of my pieces walk a Parisian catwalk and Possum Ball Millinery has even made an appearance at the Queen’s Garden Party at Buckingham Palace! I have had the honour of being part of Melbourne Fashion Week as part of their “Boldy Different” exhibition.
I have worked in collaboration with Ooroo Australia, making millinery pieces featuring award-winning textiles from Aboriginal artists and talented emerging textile designers.
In 2019/2020 I was President of the Millinery Association of Australia, a role which saw me responsible for the leadership, direction and coordination of responsibilities for the association.
I am one of the in-house milliners at the pop up millinery store, The Hat Shop, which sees me working in collaboration with three other Melbourne milliners.
I have judged millinery at the Millinery Association of Australia’s Design Award, The Royal Melbourne Show and have been a judge and guest speaker at various spring fashion events.
My wish when creating my pieces is that you have as much fun wearing them as I have creating them!
