But she also loves Drama, and Art , and using cloth in a way that shows vision and imagination. Inspires romance and fantasy, and attempts to holds a persons breath for a moment.

She has huge experience in catwalk shows , and entertaining from the catwalk.  Always looking upon that as a short stage production, not to be wasted, on her audience with mundane presentations.

It has been suggested to her , that her ideas would translate well in film, theatre, even opera.

Over the years working with clients on shows , she would say ,has been extremely enjoyable following a brief; but part of  the success of these past ventures has been the opportunity ,once she has embraced the essence of what the client wants,  to then follow her own instinct and take the project further.
