Australia is a multi-national country
and it's very open I find, just like you are, very open to mix and match and put
everything together but at the same time the Australians are getting more and
more sophisticated. They don't want to have you know the idea of a hat with corks hanging around it, things like that they feel that they have, they need to develop something which is global and this is where Keeley comes in because she is a
multi-national person herself. You were living in Florence, you live in England,
you live in Australia, you've been all over the place [expat childhood] and in the States; it's something of gathering all that. Like with how you design, I think
when you're someone that loves design and you notice the details, then you take
a little something from everywhere. Always, always, wherever you are. And if that works in with your style, then you can put that into your aesthetic.
