The story behind Girl with a PEARL
Where do i start...?
As a young girl i always dreamt of owning my own fashion label. I clearly remember being 17 and entering the Mudgee show girl competition.. I stood on a stage in front of an audience full of friends and family and a panel of three judges, one of which asked…. What do you want to do in life? What are your dreams? I paused for a minute… I knew what I wanted to say.. I remember working up the courage to speak about my desire to own my own fashion label one day.
I ended up winning the Mudgee Show Girl sash that night! I believe I won it because of my passion for life, and my ambitious dream. While at the time I don’t think I actually did believe I was capable of this, I do believe that that moment in life was a point in which a fire was unconsciously lit inside. I believe I put it out there and here I am now following my dream.
I was born and bred in Mudgee, regional NSW, where I met my amazing, supportive husband. We are raising two beautiful girls, Evie 7, and Isla 6. While it has its moments, I absolutely love being a mum and spending every second I can with my girls watching them grow.
Now that my girls are that little bit older I felt this is the time to throw my whole self into something new, something close to my heart and personal interests.
I have always been into fashion and accessories and it was a no brainer that i needed to do something that incorporated this. I also wanted to show my girls that with a little perseverance, determination, a lot of hard work and belief in yourself, you can achieve anything you want.
