2016 I fell in love with Italy and knew this was where I needed to be

I fell in love with their way of life, culture and of course, their clothing. This lead me to launch my DONNA DONNA label comprising of mostly silks, linens and cottons.

Now, many trips later, I have formed wonderful relationships with my manufacturers and fabric houses, they work closely with me to bring together my ideas for Australian women.

And believe me I turn up with hundreds of ideas, the hardest job is the elimination process because I LOVE EVERYTHING.

Italian linen is such a soft linen, it gets better the more it’s washed and nowadays does not require ironing. The majority of my customers only like natural fibres to keep them cooler, especially in our hot Australian summers, I love how timeless Italian fashion is! These garments never date and always hold their value. If Mr Bouris was to ask me what business are you in? My reply would be to make women feel and look good. I love to receive messages from ladies who are so thrilled with their purchases, or when a lady comes into one of my 4 stores and is so thankful for the honest and personal service my staff have given to them. They leave DONNA DONNA feeling so good about themselves and their purchases.

”Now that is the most rewarding part of my work day!”
