What's your favourite thing about SYTL? 

That the clothes are Australian made, and that pieces fit together to form a flexible capsule. And of course the diversity represented by the models used :-)


Why is diverse representation in fashion important to you? 

I get so annoyed that older women seem to be invisible in the fashion industry and that indeed many older women feel invisible. It is a ridiculous situation when older Australian women have money to spend, but are expected to buy clothes which are modelled by size 8 teenagers. If you want our money, show us your clothes on our peers.


What are your three favourite SYTL pieces? 

The Danielle Dress, The Alex Cami, The Alexa Relaxed Tee.
