Jacqui is inspired by post-WWII fashion, an era during which her Grandmother was a young fashionista.  It’s fitting then that Jacqui should inherit a few of her Grandmother’s favourite things, and adapt them for her own contemporary sense of style…

“The blouse is from my favourite store ‘Princess Highway’ and the skirt is from Uniqlo – both from Melbourne.  The shoes were from an op-shop.  The bag was my Nanas, and yes she is a personal icon! I took inspiration for the whole outfit from the post war era.  I love the femininity of big long skirts – this one makes me feel like doing a girly twirl!  The silhouette suits my body shape too.   I commissioned the gold spitfire necklace by local photographer and artist Martin de Ruyter.  It’s my favourite plane & symbolises ‘Grace & Gallantry’ & ‘an unwillingness to be bullied’.  It is a symbol that has given me strength in recent times.”
