This was my first official solo event styling gig, and I absolutely loved it. The brief was to create a vintage rustic afternoon tea setting for a wedding at Alberton House in Auckland. The bride and groom were super laid-back for a couple who were planning their wedding in only three weeks, so it was a really awesome experience. Thank you to everyone who helped to make this lovely afternoon possible.

So it may not seem a big deal to anyone else, but I just finished 6 weeks of night classes doing a fashion course at Whitecliffe College of Arts & Design. I learned how to draft a pattern and construct a tailored skirt out of linen. This was one of the goals I was talking about in a previous post – to keep learning and growing. The aim is to extend the sewing skills and start making some more complex pieces soon.
2013 was a year of change for me – moving to the big smoke of Auckland, starting a new job in a very different school, making new friends… but I stayed in my comfort zone when it came to my art and design. After some decent prodding from a creative friend, I have decided to set a few goals for my second year in the concrete jungle. My hope is that I will actually follow through with these goals now that I have shared them with the online world.
Keep stopping by to see how I’m going with the goals!
