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.
