With a passion for designing and sewing from the age of seven, Tracey has decades of manufacturing experience to be proud of.
Studying fashion was just the start - gaining experience as a machinist in a busy sewing factory in the UK was the foundation she needed to build a career from the ground up. Learning to sew in an industrial environment worked to her advantage in years to come. Training as a pattern designer created opportunities to work overseas as local production ceased in the mid 90’s.
Taking an idea from a sketch and translating it onto paper to make a garment is a technical skill not many understand, but it is a critical part of the process and really where the magic happens. Her most challenging design role came when creating a bridal range for a variety of major high street stores including BHS, House of Fraser, Debenhams & Selfidges.
The Journey to SoS
Coming to Australia in 2006 was another dream of Tracey’s. As a girl people often asked 'who do you want to be when you grow up?' she would reply ‘Australian’, and so it was. After creating products such as suiting, outerwear, underwear & accessories for all the Australian major stores, such as Target, Bra’s & Things, Sussan, Saba, Sportscraft, Billabong & wYse she finally found herself at Science of Style.
