Nyngan lass Brigid McLaughlin will once again headline the ICPA Fashion Parade at the Nyngan Ag Expo, showcasing her range of beautifully crafted unique clothing.
The Brigid McLaughlin range is timeless, embracing the concept of “slow clothing” – quality natural fabrics which will last a lifetime, well cut patterns, and unexpected detail.
All these elements take time to execute. They cultivate small luxuries which indulge the wearer. “I work with a small but exceptional team of craftspeople who excel at what they do in an industry that is at risk of losing the skills of yesteryear; the art of tailoring, draping, cutting and sewing,” she said.
“I believe in making clothes that can be collected and worn for years to come. Clothing made with great care; employing ethical and environmentally sound practices.”
Brigid’s greatest inspiration comes from the past.
