The moment when you realise you're no longer a little girl in Perth who just loves to sew.
Thank you @elleuk for the incredible honour earlier this week as @elleryland took home "Emerging Brand of the year" at the ELLE UK Style Awards in London. It was both awesome and daunting to get onstage right after Vivienne Westwood, Debbie Harry and Christopher Bailey to name but a few, but thank you Great Britain for welcoming us with open arms.
Without my team this would never be possible - thank you all (you know who you are) for being the intelligent, strong and hard working people that I am honoured to build this brand with. Thank you Mum for teaching me how to sew when I was just 8 years old and Dad for both the elegant surname and making the birth of the brand possible almost ten years ago. You guys are the best parents that I could ever dream of having.
Lastly, I wanted to dedicated this award to our late friend, Richard Nicoll, an incredible man who left us all too soon. Richard was an inspiration and his heart shone pure gold. We love and miss you mate, this one is for you.
