My mother was the most wonderful seamstress. I think I had my first taste of fabric as a school girl going to Centrepoint Farbics on Queen Street looking for satin for the ball dress mum was making for me. I came into a world that I felt very comfortable in, I viewed my first bit of sparkley gold sequins and deep soft velvet and I was hooked!
I started working for Martin Hughes Design straight out of AIT, and I remember seeing all the reps coming in with amazing and wonderful fabrics. I knew then that I wanted to be involved in the design/textiles/architecture trade.
Once returning from my O.E my first job in Auckland was working in the showroom at Mokum Textiles. I then wanted to go out on the road selling for Mokum, as I loved the travel and seeing all the different Designers and Retailers in their own space. After three years on the road, I was offered the job as Sales Manager for Mokum which was a huge learning curve being more on the Management side of the business. I really saw the 'nuts and bolts' of a large wholesale company and I had the most amazing opportunities of travelling overseas and meeting Tricia Guild, Peter Osbourne and Nina Campbell in London.
I then needed a bit of a break from packing a suitcase so I had six months off and then came back to work for Icon Textiles for two years ending up as Sales and Marketing Manager. Now I am very proud to take over Jill Tuck Designers Cushions and Soft Furnishings.
