Goodbye Hello

If you feel so inclined to click on this link above you won't be disappoited, one of the great things that happened this year of 2011 was my discovering Alina Simone & this song is filled with heart & soul & guts & beauty. And I think the same can be said for the woman herself.

Another great thing about 2011 was all the fantastic people I got to work with on shoots for 'Shirley'. There's two of them to the left there & more below.

It has been a challenging year filled with a lot of hard work. I've learned a lot of new things, about business, computers, myself. I love to learn but some lessons come easier than others.

I'll be glad to say goodbye to 2011 knowing that I have done my very best & I'll be happy to see 2012 which will be jammed
packed with exciting new projects.

I fully expect to work just as hard if not harder. Some of the old challenges will remain(I am stuck with myself & my own physical limitations) & there will be new ones to overcome. But I'm confident it is going to be a big year for 'Shirley'.

I really appreciate those of you who have supported me in 2011, whether it be following this blog, buying something, selling something, words of encouragement etc., it all means a lot to me & helps keep me going.

I'll be taking on a work experience assistant & look forward to interviewing & meeting everyone.

Of course there's the designing & execution of the Winter 2012 collection. Video projects, fashion parades like this town has never seen before & a huge trip to Melbourne & Adelaide in March/April & on it goes.

Here's me with my number one supporter who is always by my side. So... much love & cheers to you & now to go celebrate the year that was & to welcome the year to come. XX

Work It

Wow...what a year 2011 has been right?  I know it has a been a big year for 'Shirley' & 2012 is set to be huge.

So much exciting stuff planned for the new year & there is just so much to do I can no longer do it on my own.
That said,  I am looking for a work experience assistant.  If you are studying or just completed studies or are wanting to build your resume' for example & need experience for your is not  paid position but there will be some opportunities for remuneration.

If you want a career in any of these-  fashion, business management, retail & sales, marketing & pr, event management, stylist

If you have any of the following skills - computer skills, administrative, overlocking, video, photography, hair & make up, research, grant applications, networking

A willingness to muck in & help out where needed will put you in good stead.  A vehicle is desirable but not necessary.

                                                       plus much more

Of course you don't have to have all of these things & one of the important aspects is that you can be flexible & creative & have a sharp mind, & that you suit the work environment that is 'Shirley' world.

The location is Paddington in Brisbane & is poodle friendly.  There are also sometimes foster dogs that stay with us until they are adopted.  So if you are allergic or don't like dogs then the position is not for you.

Behind the scenes............some of the tasks you may have to perform.  Sheltering photographers in the rain, giving models a thorough soaking, public events such as markets............helping out at photo shoots & the view from the office, not bad hey?

If you aren't afraid of hard work, want to have fun, be involved in exciting projects,  then please send an email to introduce yourself & tell me something about you.   Include your contact details & send  to this address
