MY CAREER JOURNEY
My career with Forever New has been exciting and challenging, filled with plenty of growth and opportunity to develop on past successes. I moved to Australia from the UK after accepting an Outerwear Designer position with the company, and was promoted to Senior Outerwear Designer after a year and a half of hard work. I’ve since been involved with everything from overseas fabric sourcing to garment production, with a focus on creating inspirational design concepts to help elevate the department and brand to new heights.
WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT WORKING WITH FOREVER NEW
The people. Every day in the Forever New office is like being with a big bunch of friends. Although we all work so closely together, it’s hard not to think of each other as family! In terms of my specific role, working here has allowed me to push the boundaries and create beautiful, high quality garments. From sketching an initial design, to selecting the colour, trims, and agonising over the length of a belt or the size of pocket; it’s a phenomenal feeling to see this garment come to life. There’s nothing more satisfying than knowing you have contributed to the growth of the department and the greater business, especially when you love what you do.
MY WARDROBE ESSENTIALS
For winter, I’m all about the black high-waisted jeans, a pair of killer heels and a great coat (of course). For summer, it’s a chic pair of mules.
HOW I LIKE TO KICK START MY DAY
Earl Grey tea is a must in the morning, then a team catch-up to work on our plan of attack for the day. We also love listening to music – it puts us all in a great mood and gets those creative juices flowing.
