Our Aussie online retail business, Bits of Australia, was launched in April 2014 to offer a unique range of Australian made handcrafts, boutique souvenirs and gifts that celebrate and reflect the beauty, culture and creativity of Australia and its people.
We were so excited to be asked to support the Nylon Singapore Australiana photo shoot with Nicole Warne, featured here below. Nicole is surrounded by dozens of our cuddly koalas, kookaburras, penguins, wombats, emus, echidnas and platypuses. All our soft toy animals are made in Australia using high quality fibres and fabrics.
Nicole Warne is an inspirational young Australian who is making her mark on the world. Nicole's multitude of talents include modelling, styling, digital & social media, branding and a whole lot more! This amazing woman owned her own successful company at the age of 20. She is now a jet-setting professional lifestyle blogger with over a million followers on Instagram and an array of projects and collaborations at garypeppergirl.com.
The moment that really threw the spotlight on Nicole was when she became the first blogger to grace the catwalk at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia in 2012.
In 2013 Nicole became the first blogger to sign with IMG, the largest talent management agency in the world. She also supports a plethora of charity initiatives including Donate Planet - a not-for-profit foundation for which she is currently the Global Ambassador. Nicole has been described by TFS as "one of the most visible innovators on the Australian fashion landscape".
We love sharing stories about inspirational Australians like Nicole and supporting Australia's brands, businesses and talent. We would love to hear from you about inspiring Australian's and events. We welcome comments on this blog and you can contact us directly through our website.
