Collette became the first Australian to mount a full-scale ready-to-wear collection in Paris in October 1995, and in 1996 was invited by the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture to show on the prestigious Paris Fashion Week schedule. Hard work and passionate attention to detail have driven her to become Australia’s most lauded designer. Her list of awards is long.
While her aesthetic essence is undeniably Australian, Collette’s sensibilities translate easily around the world. Every garment was carefully hand-made and then shipped to stores in a variety of destinations around the globe, including Asia, Europe, Middle East, United Kingdom and the United States.
Her work has appeared in movies and television and is worn by fashion icons worldwide including Princess Mary of Denmark, the Duchess of Cambridge, Nicole Kidman, Angelina Jolie, Beyoncé and many more notable influencers.
