Sophie Burrowes’ Samantha vest


November 7, 2009/7.35

There have been some amazing things in my career to date but when Sophie Burrowes, a young Massey University fashion designer, who I admire for so many reasons, told me she had named a piece in her first collection (she’s still in design school, by the way) after me, I was blown away.
   It’s called the Samantha vest and it’s beautiful—I love it! Giving my time, knowledge, love, well, everything, charges me with energy. Sometimes I’ve given to the wrong people, but this time I know I got it right. When Sophie hand-delivered my very own Samantha vest, she told me how much she appreciated my help and this was her way of giving back to me. What an amazing lady.
   Sophie’s collection ‘is inspired by the opposing themes of military uniforms of the 18th century and the femininity of the romantic movement, rocked up with images of the ’80s. Floaty floral prints vie with ideas of tight lace and leather to make an edgy contrast. The collection features mini-dresses, draped waistcoats, exposed zips, brass buttons, and dropped V-necks’. It’s super-cute and I like her attention to detail.
