Gorgeous couture gowns

Coming from making props for photographers, I have found a real passion in designing and creating beautiful gowns and everyday wear, for maternity, wedding, or just because.
I work form my home studio in Hamilton New Zealand, where I combine mothering three busy boys with designing and creating.
I love trying something new, and am always striving to be better then before.
