I was approached by the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne in 2013 to design a collection of prints for a new menswear range for the Gardens Shop. This was a collaboration between me, RBGM and Henry Bucks Menswear. It was a very creative and interesting process for me and I was lucky to have such a fantastic client who trusted my design aesthetic, design ability and encouraged my creativity.  Three designs were chosen by the client and will be printed onto beautiful Italian silk and then made into fashion accessories for men and women. The product range will include mens ties, mens scarves and women’s scarves.

The new range will be launched in August 2015 and will be available for purchase from The Gardens shop and Henry Bucks stores throughout Australia.
