A little bit of History
I started my journey into the fashion world at the age of 16, modelling internationally at some of the worlds most exclusive fashion shows in Paris, New York, Germany and Milan. Modelling for some of the worlds leading designers and appearing on the cover of Australian Vogue and Harpers Bazaar and several other leading fashion magazines introduced me into the world of design.
Settling in Canada, I built my life around not fashion but focusing my efforts in my 4 children, 2 sons and 2 daughters.
Now living in Australia, highlighted to me that sustainable quality and value for money toys for children particularly girls were not readily available and those that were available were out of reach for most families.
While the fashion industry gave myself an appreciation of quality, innovation, and exclusivity, I realised these garments are only available to the wealthiest.
Combining my experience in fashion with my newfound focus and love, my children, I decided to design and produce a collection of quality dolls rattan furniture showcasing innovation and design in sustainable and affordable products.
In a world of plastic and toys that require batteries I have taken up the challenge to offer a quality and unique alternative. There is something special about natural materials. Their durability gives them a unique ability to become family heirlooms that can be enjoyed by generations to come.
Here at Lily Sprout Collection we are mindful about the sustainability and ethical sourcing of our Rattan Doll furniture and actively work with our suppliers to make sure that they use the highest quality rattan from renewable sources in all our hand made products, all our pieces are unique and provide their family with a fair living wage.
I hope you enjoy our Collection as much as I have enjoyed putting it together for you.
