Last year while I was still studying I was lucky enough to intern with Romance Was Born. And although I can say I learnt a lot and that everyone was super nice I felt completely out of my depth and dorky the whole time (nothing unusual there). So I was so extremely flattered when Anna emailed me earlier this year asking me if I could knit a skirt and top for them.
The pieces were to be exhibited at a Woolmark Gala dinner at the MCA in Sydney in honour of L'Uomo Vogue's Editor-in-Chief Franca Sozzani. I of course said yes - how could I not? Panic followed quickly when it became apparent that they needed everything in two weeks. I got most of it done - I wish I had more time to perfect it but it was hand knitted - anyway I did what I could.
I didn't have time to get any photos of the work - (it got thrown into a post bag as soon as it came off the knitting machine at 3.45pm on deadline day) but I recently found some photos of the event and was happy to see the skirt in action. (It's the knitted one on the model). Photos courtesy of Vogue Australia.
