‘Hello, my name is Jo. I’m an Australian designer living the expat life in Hong Kong with my husband and two daughters and a lovely old cat called Jazzy.
I have been creating and sewing for as long as I can remember, it’s always been my thing. I made my first ‘floral’ dress when I was about 10, with my mum’s help. I studied Fashion Technology at college and went on to work as a designer and pattern maker for swimwear, costume, lingerie and bridal companies in Australia and the UK.
My creativity has sustained me over the years, and I am now passionate about teaching my daughters to be creative and give them an alternative to sitting in front of a screen! I also teach girls to sew in my ‘Sew Fun’ classes at International schools here in Hong Kong. I see the sparkle my student’s eyes when they create something and it reminds me of myself when I was young!’
