When people say, “I don't know how she does it!”
Today “I don't know how I do it!”,
When I was told my designer was unable to finish my garments for Oaks Day and Emirate Stakes Day, I have been in semi melt down, although, I refuse to cry. Tears are not for fashion and dare I say not even for hats. There are way too many big issues in the world.
My life was left in layers of fabric: Expensive silk fabric!
I was not in a place where I could do anything, I don't dislike the designer, just really upset and disappointed, as it is not easy to find a dressmaker within a couple of days.
When every designer in Melbourne is working on their masterpiece for 'Myer Fashions on the Field' designer section, who wants to take on a new project?
Call in Craig Braybrook!
Craig was busy with his winning masterpiece that won 'Myer Fashions on the Field, Designer Award', but suggested I ring Bernadette Pimenta.
This morning, I had a call from Bernadette to come and try the calico and have a corset boned. Yes, this morning. I am now awaiting a call that it shall be ready for me for a fitting at about 10pm tonight.
Allot of people were asking where I was today, as I did not attend the 'Oak's ladies luncheon', the most coveted ticket in ladies luncheons. I am just thinking, my full wardrobe is in Far North Queensland and contrary to popular belief, you don't see me blog everyday in a fabulous outfit. Most of the days are spent with my children in the back garden planting vegetables in cargo pants.
With my fabulous hat by 'Paris Kyne, Master Milliner', 'Phoebe', I had the material ready, and I vowed not to wear import. I want Australian Couture!
Bernadette is still tirelessly working in her studio, with her own personal 'Project Runway'. This is a lady of remarkable skill.
Yesterday, finishing her garment that finaled in the 'Myer Fashions on the Field, Designer Award' and today making my dress to present to camera. I am forever grateful and thankful.
Sometimes heroes come in capes, masks, or costumes, but mine comes with a arm full of Calico and Pins.
