Vintage Style - Classic Oobi

September 10, 2019 4 min read

Hey mums and dads, I'm thrilled to share the sweet-as-a-flower Tulips Collection with you. It's a gorgeous new print in a classically Oobi-licious style. Best of all, the fabric is embossed with a gorgeous pattern, creating a depth to the fabric, and a very rich and (can I say...) glamorous style. Read More...

It's like Monet's Garden...

August 22, 2019 2 min read 2 Comments

I've been having a lot of fun, working with new swimwear makers and enjoying the creative flow that happens when you work with people that just "get you". And by "get you" I mean be really, really patient with me 🤦‍♀️! Because over quite a few weeks we have dyed hundreds of swatches, creating a 'watercolour' effect for this pretty floral. I just had a vision in my head and honestly, I couldn't rest until we got this right - until this idea of "Monet's Garden" was realised. Read More...

DIAMONDS IN THE SKY...

August 27, 2018 3 min read

When I design for your daughter, I design with a feeling of nostalgia in my mind. And I always ask the question: how can I design to ensure that a little one feels special, different, unique, loved? And does she love her dress? Can she look at the print for hours and get lost in it? Is it comfortable and spinnable and dancable and playable? Read More...

I'm really crushing on the Mermaid Seaflower and Seashell Pink floral prints we've made this summer. There's something really special about a tiny delicate little flower (but one that's got a bit of oomph, right?!) and the minute I started recolouring this print I kept thinking about an underwater garden...

SUMMER ROSES - DREAMY DAYS, SUNSHINE AND LOVE...

October 06, 2017 5 min read

From the navy ditsy floral to the delicate little fabric with tiny daisies, I've kind of gone all out this season - because... love. I also love to doodle little fluttery hearts, imperfect always, not too round, a little bit sharp too... like a thorn. You can't take a rose or a heart for granted...
