Inspiration - Title Asset KBI 2021.png

Emerging young designer Keira L. is the artist and entrepreneur behind "The Silver Fashionista". Using her talent to respond to  the urgent need to address the consequences of 'fast fashion', she upcycles clothing and gently used fabric to design one-of-a-kind outfits, including an upcycled gown for prom 2022.



Grief is the Thing with Feathers

"Grief Is The Thing With Feathers" is truly a remarkable telling of pain. Breathtaking prose, heart wrenching confessions, and the vulnerability of grief in every colour. This is not a story to pull you in and captivate you in its plot, it is rather a fictional story that is real for so many people. It is a hungry novel, hungry for its readers to insert themselves in a story we are all too familiar with - a loss we are all too familiar with."
