Anne was drawn into fashion at an early age, finding it more gratifying to make Vogue clothes than to buy them retail. Making my own clothes styled by some of the best designers in the world allowed me the freedom to make clothes that not only fitted me but also looked great.
After many years of learning through trial & error, Anne took up formal studies at the Melbourne College of Textiles & Fashion Design in 1984. She found being under the guidance and watchful eye of experts very fulfilling & rewarding. This opened her eyes to a more structured approach to fashion.
For nearly three decades Anne has been The Pattern Whisperer, finding fulfilment in helping people find outfits for special events, wardrobe makeovers, creating & making stylish clothes for herself and family.
Anne is a past Vice President of the Melbourne Chapter AICI, The Association of Image Consultants International.
