Milliner is now top of her class

Daily Mercury - - NEWS -

SUC­CESS looks good on Brenda Lui.

Af­ter a suc­cess­ful ex­hi­bi­tion, A Milliner’s Tale, at Artspace she has now been ac­cred­ited as a mem­ber of the ex­clu­sive Aus­tralian Milliners’ As­so­ci­a­tion.

“This is a re­ally big achieve­ment for me and some­thing I have been work­ing to­ward for a long time,” Lui said.

“To have been granted ac­cred­i­ta­tion for such a pres­ti­gious or­gan­i­sa­tion is some­thing I am ex­tremely proud of. It opens a lot of doors.”

As­so­ci­a­tion ac­cred­i­ta­tion is no mean feat. It can take years of ap­ply­ing and its mem­ber­ship lists is a who’s who of Aus­tralian millinery and fash­ion.

“I guess, for me, it also shows the rest of the coun­try the level of tal­ent we have in our re­gions. Any op­por­tu­nity we have to show­case our re­gions and the high stan­dard of de­sign and fash­ion we have in places like Mackay, has to be a good thing.”

This week­end, Lui was in Syd­ney for the Thor­ough­bred Events’ Spring Millinery Show­case. “This in­vi­ta­tion-only event show­cases the best milliners in NSW, with in­vi­ta­tional places for in­ter­state de­sign­ers,” she said.
