As a rather ordinary Mum of 3, I dreamed of a life where I could wear beautiful dresses, made from the florals and botanicals that inspire my art every day.
I have 3 children, live a very busy life with my job and illustration business. Sassy is the part of me who travels the world, getting inspiration from places such as the beautiful cities of Paris, Rome or Florence. From Japanese gardens to the Maldives beaches….
The idea came about simply because I was drawing the same character and imagining her in these glamorous destinations in her beautiful petals dresses. She’s cheeky, sexy, chic and needed a name…Voila! Sassy Du Fleur was born.
Whilst I lead a life in jeans and t-shirts, Sassy and her ever-changing wardrobe travels the world to the places that I dream of, whilst driving my Mum taxi.
Sassy du Fleur turns a scattering of petals into an enviable evening gown. Sassy can promenade along the Champs Elysees in a rose petal skirt, wander the streets of Rome in a botanical leaf dress, charleston the night away at a speakeasy club in a tropical inspired dress made from a Protea flower. She shares a memory and sheds a tear on Remembrance Sunday in her Poppy inspired dress. Sassy du Fleur marches with the woman around the world in protest to injustice and discrimination.
Why do I use flowers and foliage? Flowers and foliage share the beauty, grace, and strength that every woman possesses inside. Both will thrive when nurtured with care and respect.
Sassy will shortly be opening her shop of floral and botanical inspired designer wares.
