  • VIVO Salon Runway, Auckland
    Donald, from Vivo Rotorua gave me a huge challenge, not just the garment but the timeline. I hand stitched the border top of the dress and hem of the dress and fused some sequin fabric for a shoulder bow. I was def happy with the results which were enhanced with bleached blonde hair and extensions and blinged out nails and shoes.

  • MOKO Runway, Whangarei
    An evening of Fashion, Art, Dance and Music was enjoyed by those who attended Whangarei's inaugural event. I loved it. I mixed my old kakahu with the latest pieces to create looks for 10 gorgus Whangarei wahine. The collection was profiled as "From Blanket to Boardroom, to Ballroom"
