I’ve been watching a lot of Bon Appetit videos on YouTube, especially ‘It’s Alive’ with Brad Leone. So naturally, I’ve been into fermenting food at home – I also made a starter the other day so I can finally make my own sourdough bread.
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
I work as the Design & Production Assistant for Incu Collection. I’ve always appreciated art and music. I studied at QUT where I began developing my knowledge in design with a degree in Fine Arts. I moved to New York after that and gained work experience on a global scale; I was exposed to brands like Proenza Schouler, The Row and Rosie Assoulin. Prior to joining Incu, I worked in the design team at Zimmermann and over to sales at Lee Mathews, but I really couldn’t be happier to work for this team today and be part of such a collaborative and supportive community – these are my people.
The Incu Collection two-piece Delfina Cord Blazer and Trousers, worn as a set can take your ZOOM-conference-meeting-look to the next level, or layered with existing separates in your wardrobe; it’s a nod to timeless women in retro power suits, think Anjelica Huston or Charlotte Rampling in the 70’s.
What's your WFH situation?
I have a built-in desk along the hallway in my apartment, so I’ve set this area up as my WFH office. I also have my little intern around, her name’s Gigi. She’s no help though – she just snacks and sleeps all day (like most cats).
How are you staying sane?
Staying in is so important right now, I honestly don’t leave the house unless I have to run to the supermarket. On weekends, I generally catch up with family and friends over the phone. I’ve also weirdly gotten into making beats using Garage Band (lol) and set myself a challenge to start reading old music sheets from when I played instruments. It’s not often the world slows down the way it has in the last couple of months, so I’m definitely using this time to recuperate and rediscover old hobbies.
I always share music on my Instagram, both old and new – some playlists and artists I’ve been listening to on heavy rotation are:
- INCU RADIO - here's my Cabin Fever Mix
- Our Legacy - COURTESY PLAYLIST
- Yo-Yo Ma
- Ms Banks
Tell us a little bit about the new Collection for IC?
We wanted to offer essential pieces for the IC woman’s wardrobe this April – the two-piece Delfina Cord Blazer and Trousers, worn as a set can take your ZOOM-conference-meeting-look to the next level, or layered with existing separates in your wardrobe; it’s a nod to timeless women in retro power suits, think Anjelica Huston or Charlotte Rampling in the 70’s.
