A little bit feminine, a little bit gangster.
It depends on what day it is, on Mondays I consult my clients so I like to be quite feminine.
On the days I design you'll most likely find me in an oversized knit and connies.

Adelaide hot spot...

Bottega Gelataria in Henley - they legit have the best gelato you will taste and they have vegan options.
 
 
 

What's it like being a girl boss? 

Lots of fun!  
It's really important for me to make sure my team are enjoying themselves as I believe this encourages more efficiency in the studio. 
Sometimes when it's 3 pm we like to dance!
I love the flexibility and lifestyle of being my own boss, I'm so passionate about what I do and think everyone should be doing something they love.

 

 

 

[STUDIO MANAGER]

 

Where were your parents born? 

My mum was born in Germany and came over when she was a child, and Dad in Australia - even though both his parents are also German.

 

The most meaningful piece I own...

My Emerald cut engagement ring of course! After that, it's my rose gold CM custom necklace my husband surprised me with for my birthday with all our kids' names engraved.

 

What CM jewels are on your wish list? 

That's a tough question to answer as there are SO many I want! I'd be happy with any of them honestly, but my collection is slowly growing!

 

 

 

Favourite weekend activity? 

Anything with my husband and two little ones really, just spending time with my family and friends is good enough for me.

 

What's your fashion style?

I don't follow fashion, I just go with whatever suits my shape and style I like at the time. You could say I like to wear a lot of black..!

 

Fun fact? 

I'm a Gemini and I don't have a split personality!

 

What's the weirdest/funniest thing that happened to you this week?

My 3-year old daughter told my husband he could not wear her Elsa (Frozen) princess dress because he was not a princess!

 

What's your favourite food? 

I don't do favourite - I like all food too much. But if chocolate is food, I'll go with that!

 

What do you do on a Friday night? 

Let's put it this way - not what I use to do since becoming a Mum!

 

Favourite place to shop? 

Online. Usually at midnight. No time for browsing like I used to!

 

Favourite Adelaide restaurant at the moment..

Home - my husband's cooking is the best!

 

What's like working for Cassandra?

I'm a firm believer that because we spend so much of our lives working we need to be doing something we love - otherwise we are wasting our time away.  I wouldn't be doing something I didn't thoroughly enjoy or I wouldn't surround myself with the same people every week if it wasn't the right fit for me.

Needless to say, I love coming into work with Cassandra, there's not a day where we haven't laughed yet!
