Callie has been in love with fashion since her days as a young girl growing up in Melbourne, Australia. Her favorite game of dress-up involved pulling out her Mum’s sixties- and seventies-era evening clothes, and modeling her favorite ensembles. She has marked important or special events in her life through the evolution of her wardrobe — from her first pair of high heels, her first ballgown, prom dress, and — of course — her wedding gown.

An appreciation for the impact fashion makes on our lives inspired Callie to study Fashion Design at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. And she loved every minute of her time there. Upon graduation, she honed her design skills in women’s and children’s wear for various Australian companies, eventually landing her a position designing wedding gowns. Callie discovered she had a special talent for creating memorable gowns, and fell in love with bridal design.
