How to help the Australian Bushfire crisis

The bush fire situation happening here in Australia right now is devastating. It is hard not to know someone who has been affected. It is hard to watch rolling footage of what looks like some kind of futuristic apocalypse and not feel utterly heartbroken for the people, animals and land affected. 'Look for the people helping' we have been telling our two young kids as they watch other young kids being evacuated onto naval vessels wearing masks and clutching teddies. And there are so many people helping; from the courageous firefighters, volunteers and residents at the forefront of disaster, the local communities banding together in support to people giving their time, resources and generously donating whatever they can. We are a nation who cares.

 

Now is not the time to talk about fashion or try and selfishly promote a business while others are suffering. It is the time to donate, help and heal however possible.

 

Here are some things we can all do to help:

 

Donate money (not items) to:

@nswrfs

@celestebarber’s fundraiser for the RFS

@redcrossau

Looking up at a cloud-streaked blue sky on a summer morning or standing on the cliffs at Bondi gazing at the ocean. The heat haze blurring and softening the colours on a scorching hot day. Immerse yourself in a Sydney blue.

New Mood. New Collection

Every collection starts with a mood, sparked by a moment of inspiration and instinctively I knew my second collection had to be about the beautiful city I've called home for the past 10 years.
