Kiri-Moana Proctor – From Interpreter to Kids Wear Designer
I have such an inspirational guest for you today and one who breaks out into song – double bonus!
Kiri began her career working as an interpreter for the deaf, she also trained in the beauty space, a skill set that she was able to use on her travels with her partner as his job took them overseas. It was overseas that the inspiration for her new business started but it wasn’t until she was back on Australian soil that ‘Duke of London’ started. Initially clothing for boys, ten years on she is designing and dressing girls and grown up kids too!
Duke of London is now found in over 50 stockists throughout Australia, New Zealand, America, Canada and Poland, this Australian-based fashion label has been dressing children world-wide for the past ten years. The unique and totally on-trend designs always find that perfect balance between uber-cool and utter-comfort. Worn by cool-kids all over the globe including the Kardashian clan, the Stefani/Rossdale boys and most recently by Chris and Elsa Hemsworth’s children, as well as Amber Rose and Wiz Kahlifa’s son.
It wasn’t always an easy ride and I love Kiri’s honesty about the highs and lows of being a solo parent to two boys and running a start-up.
Enjoy the chat and the singing!
