What’s your link to Townville? My previous partner and father to my children played for The Cowboys and, at 25, I moved from the Gold Coast to live in Townsville for a couple of years. When leaving Townsville, I remember it being very emotional as I was leaving so many amazing friends
Where are you now? My boys and I live on the Gold Coast close to my mum and sister but I do spend quite a lot of time in Sydney as my partner is based there. I kind of have two homes.
What does your work involve? I have a children’s fashion label called Duke of London and we stock to over 50 stores in four different countries. We’re currently dressing the likes of the Kardashian kids, Stefani boys, Wiz Khalifa’s son and many sports stars’ babies within Australia and the US. It all began after having my first baby boy, London. I’m in a very happy place right now and I feel like I’m exactly where I’m meant to be. I have an amazing partner, two beautiful children, a couple of dogs and am surrounded by the most wonderful people and a beautiful family. My business is booming and everything is falling into place.
How did your time in Townsville set you up for success? When living in Townsville I worked for myself for the very first time. It was in the beauty industry and was a perfect introduction to being self-employed. I’ve been self-employed ever since and now I get to be creative and live my dream in boys’ fashion
Do you still come back to Townsville to visit? I still visit Townsville regularly with my boys. I’m still very close with the football girls and my childhood best friend, who has now moved up there. We also now stock Duke of London to La Petite Boudoir so I visit for work as well.
