Back to the Grafton Academy I go!

The Grafton Academy is where my Mum got her diploma in Fashion Design. 30 years later, I graduated with my very own diploma in Fashion Design!

The Grafton Academy asked if I would come in and chat with the student about my journey thus far and how Manley got to be where it is today. I remember how beneficial those talks were to me when I was in college so I jumped at the chance.


There was a great turn out, plenty of great questions and so many of the students seemed incredibly passionate about their studies. Oh how I remember those days!
