How are you staying connected this Mother's Day, given the current circumstances in the world?
This will be my first Mother's Day. My daughter will be seven weeks old so it will be a very special one. We are staying at a friend's country home outside of Bowral and will be relishing the blissful countryside location while supporting the local community through a little outing into town for a 'takeaway' Mother's Day breakfast. It's so important to continue to support local Australian businesses during these strange times, and it's also more important than ever to stay connected to and to be respectful of our extraordinary Earth.
What has been the lesson your mum has offered to you?
Patience. Selflessness. Humility. Unconditional love and support, and most recently my mother stayed with my husband and I for the first five weeks of our daughter's birth during isolation. Her support, love and advice during this time will be forever engrained in my consciousness.
What makes the word 'mum' so special?
It's not the word itself but the emotions it conjures. It also brings with it a sense of childhood nostalgia which instantly warms the soul.
Tell us your most memorable fashion moment - mother or grandmother.
I have the most vivid memories of my grandmother, mother and I sitting on my grandmother's beautiful four-poster bed when I must have only been about six years of age, with me trying on her beautiful winter coats. I still remember the caress of the cashmere as it engulfed me and the faint smell of her perfume which lingered on the lapel. She was such a fashionable, beautiful lady.
