At twilight on a crisp night in March 2016 I launched my WHITE NOISE collection on the rooftop of MONA Museum, Hobart. This show coincided with the launch of my first fragrance, Nocturne, in collaboration with perfumer Ainslie Walker and also featured a soundscape composed and performed live by Byron Meyer. The collection also showcased my ongoing shoe collaboration with Preston Zly, and bangles with Kate Rohde.
