bush walker, worka­holic, a sin­gle par­ent and a breast can­cer sur­vivor.

Robyn can lay claim to sev­eral suc­cess­ful ca­reers al­ready – mineral ex­plo­ration, stock­broking, fi­nance and com­pany start-ups to name a few. Th­ese ca­reers have taken her to more than 80 coun­tries world­wide.

From the heights of he­li­copter­ing into the An­des or Alaska to the banks of the Lim­popo in Zim­babwe, Robyn has ex­pe­ri­enced

great ad­ven­tures with their own chal­lenges, in­clud­ing watch­ing the Twin Tow­ers burn from an of­fice win­dow in New York to a car ac­ci­dent in the Re­pub­lic of Congo. Now, with more time and frus­trated by the lim­ited and

too-of­ten drab and frumpy choice of clothes on of­fer for women that no longer fit the in­dus­try’s idea of stan­dard, she has

launched Co­ral & Co to pro­vide her­self and you with clothes that are prac­ti­cal, com­fort­able and above all stylish.

With all that trav­el­ling be­hind her, who bet­ter to know what

clothes travel best. Hers is a fash­ion range de­signed so we can all have curves with con­fi­dence, com­fort and style.

Robyn is joined by Ni­cole Os­low, in the role of head de­signer. “I re­ally am blessed to do the work that I do,” she said. “I’ve drawn since I can re­mem­ber. I’ve made clothes since I was 12. I have a de­gree in fash­ion de­sign, but I’ve worked not

only as a prod­uct de­vel­oper and tex­tile de­signer but also as an il­lus­tra­tor.

“You’ll see my work in re­tail stores and food out­lets adorn­ing the walls as wall­pa­pers and art­work, but also in the beau­ti­ful

fab­ric prints of the clothes hang­ing on the racks.

“I’ve cre­ated ce­ramic tiles, il­lus­trated the cov­ers of in­ter­na­tional best-sell­ing nov­els and been com­mis­sioned for

fash­ion mag­a­zines and news­pa­pers around the world. “I love what I do, per­haps why work­ing so many hours is never a chore. I love the di­ver­sity of my work, and I’m very proud of what we have cre­ated at Co­ral & Co.”

Co­ral & Co Aus­tralia will launch Sum­mer 2017/2018 ex­clu­sively at the Sun­shine Coast Fash­ion Fes­ti­val, of which the

Sun­shine Coast Daily is a proud part­ner. Visit www.cora­landco.com.au.
