In Her Own Words...
"Hello from Australia!!
My name is Erin Holland, and I was born and raised in sunny Cairns, Far North Queensland - known of course by many for the beautiful Great Barrier Reef! At 17, I moved to Sydney (home of the iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge!!) to study voice on scholarship at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, and pursue a career in the entertainment industry. Upon graduating,
I now work in the industry as singer, presenter, dancer and model. I am known for working extremely hard and I definitely don't like having days off! In my free time, I love catching up with friends, watching a football game or trying out as many restaurants as possible around Sydney.
I have always endeavoured to be involved in charitable organisations wherever possible - My main focus this year has been disadvantaged children. Such organisations I have been raising funds for include The Lilla Community (Indigenous Outreach Program near Uluru, Australia's Red Centre), and Children's First Foundation. The most important thing I have learnt is that no matter our situation, there is always something we can do to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate."
A fully hand beaded couture gown, featuring full sleeves, high boat neck, sheer neckline, low back and a short train. The dress is of a nude colour and is made of tulle with a silk satin lining. This very elegant creation is embellished with an impressive array of Swarovski stones, glass beads, sequins, diamantes and rhinestones.
Designer Julie Sufi of Belluccio, is a master in beading. Defying the odds of physics she coats her featherweight materials with kilograms of embellishments without compromising the line of the design. Tulle based brocades, jewel toned silks, and masterfully draped jersey all fall as part of the timeless collections.
The gowns are inspired by Old world glamour and appeal to the likes of modern day Rita Hayworths, Grace Kellys and Audrey Hepburns.
Sheer tulle so delicate like webs are draped across torsos, diamantes and tiny gems encrust and gild lean silhouettes. The contrast of sheer silks with solid jewels is not only effective but devilishly difficult to achieve. The mass of one small bijoux on a light weight fabric automatically implicates a challenge to draping.
