About Me

My photo
As a little girl I would make dresses out of pillow cases and colour them with crayola markers, spend hours scribbling shoes and dreamed of working in the fashion industry, not much has changed since then. Im studying at Limerick School of Art and Design which I love,in my third year of fashion design. My favourite designers at the moment are Haider Rick Owens, Hussein Chalayan,Iris Van Herpen,Stella McCartney,Steffie Christaens , Gareth Pugh and Anne Sophie Madsen (and the list goes on and on and on!). I am driven and excited about fashion and look forward to the future.

The Doll Cemetery.

Centenary Spare doll's parts sit waiting to be used for repair at Sydney's Original Doll Hospital which is celebrating its 100th birthday this year
Spare parts: Hundreds of spare dolls' arms and legs are kept in boxes at the hospital's workshop in Bexley, Sydney
Repairs: Doll body parts are hung up to dry after being painted at the workshop
Resting place: A sign saying 'The Doll's Cemetary' hangs over a section of the warehouse that is used for waste parts
Haunting: Spare dolls heads, some needed new paintwork, others needing repairs to their eyes, are piled high
Accidental beginnings: The Doll Hospital was opened after founder Harold Chapman Snr's brother ordered celluloid dolls from Japan which were damaged in transit
Thriving: Business really boomed during World War Two when restrictions on manufacturing and importing goods meant that new dolls were hard to come by
In need of care: A doll has been taken apart and is ready for repair at Sydney's Original Doll Hospital
