Last week we were thrilled to accept the award for “designer of the year - Couture” at the Sunshine Coast fashion awards. This win was very unexpected! It was the first time Ivie White had been nominated for an award and as you can imagine the thought of actually attending the night meant leaving either as a winner or not (which was fine by me) but also as the person who’s family insisted on attending with you just in case… I should add no other nominee brought their family. As a winner it was lovely to have family there to share in the experience.
I’m not a great believer in the awards concept but it is nice to recognised and applauded by peers of the fashion industry.
