It was a whirlwind last week in Vancouver and I have just now caught my breath enough to post about what happened. This is just a quick ‘taste’ of what I got up to – there is plenty more, trust me!
Connecting to Canada
I was so used to the feel of Australia, its smell, and colours. Early in my visit, I was able to discover the new backdrop of a different continent and land. Here was my first experience of an on-the-land photo shoot with model and socialite, @SkyeBerryPie aka Skye Natasha Lintott.

Raising the Hemline
The Public Art project coordinated by Patti Desante, Raising the Hemlines, was launched. My blank canvas dresses were decorated by the public, with the first piece of artwork done by myself and placed on the dress worn by a model at the Downtown Vancouver Farmers Market.
Amanda Prepares for Paris
My evenings were also busy, starting with a fundraising event for Amanda Oiom, my gorgeous model who is going to hit the Paris runway with Green Embassy at World Fashion Week Trade Show.
Behind the Designs
My amazing host Helen Siwak of Kitsilano Kitty’s Closet, my lovely friend Patti Desante, Australian Vancouver Honorary Consul Kevin Lamb, my new Vancouverian Team and my lovely models. This was at the Behind the Designs artist talk.
