Meet our Adventurous and Talented Production Manager.
What is your role at Tiger Mist?
Im the Production Manager which means I pretty much manage everything from the product inception right through to when it comes into our warehouse. Its a good mix of designing, working with new prints, colours and being creative right trough to working out range plans, spreadsheets margins, shipping and importing. Every day is so different which I really enjoy!
For any budding fashion gurus out there - can you give them any advice?
Get as much work experience in the industry as you can! There are so many jobs in the industry that I didn’t even know existed so before you decide which path to head down its great to get a better understanding of the way the industry works. Also its important to understand everything about fashion, you can’t design a dress if you don’t know how its made!
We know you are well seasoned traveller! Tell us about your fave O/S experience?
I did a 18 day self guided hike through the himalayas to Mt Everest Base Camp in Nepal which was pretty amazing. We also built a house for a family of 6 in Granada, Nicaragua which was probably the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done, the look on the kids faces when they moved into their new home was incredible - they had never been in a house with windows before!
Oh and getting engaged at the top of the Rocky Mountains in Canada was pretty awesome too!
Describe your idea of a perfect weekend?
Pack the car and head off into the unknown! I love going camping, hiking and being outdoors. My fiancee is British so we are making a point of starting to explore Australia so its a good excuse to spend weekends away visiting places we have never been.
We know you love a disco - what music festival will you not be missing this year?
Ill be going to Listen Out in October and also to Beyond The Valley at Philip Island over New Year. Im very excited to build up my festival wardrobe this season!
What music are you currently loving?
Im listening to ‘New Dorp, New York’ by SBTRKT on repeat! We saw them at a warehouse party in London last year and ever since I’ve been obsessed. The new stuff from Alt-J is also pretty awesome and I’m a sucker for Chet Faker.
Where is your fave cuisine and where do you go to get it?
MEXICAN! I could literally eat tacos every day till I die. I love the Mexican at Chingon in Richmond as its really authentic, they are actually catering our wedding in October from their amazing taco truck!
Radio Mexico and Cantina in St Kilda also come in a pretty close equal second.
Tell us about little Jasper…
He is our 8 week old Brittany Spaniel puppy that joined our family last week! We love him to bits, but he is such a little rascal, obsessed with running away with my socks!
Its so nice having a puppy around the house, how can anyone be sad when there is a puppy around!
How do you like to stay fit?
Ive recently taken up Cross Fit which has been really fun, I’m nowhere near as hardcore as everyone else in the class though! I love Snowboarding and ive just taken up Long-boarding
Describe yourself in just THREE words!
If your house was burning down & you could only grab one thing, what would it be?
My passport! The stamps in that thing add up to almost every cent i’ve ever earned!
What pieces are you loving at Tiger Mist at the moment?
I love anything from the Rise of Dawn range, especially the new All You Need Is Lace midi dress. I also love my Rise of Dawn biker jacket and wear it with everything!
Words you live by…
If you can’t laugh what can you do!
