Milliner is now top of her class
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.
