11yo designer joins PNG fashion industry

Up until the PNG Fashion Week in August, designing dresses was only Andrea’s passion.

“She would draw amazing dresses and show it to us but you know, it was her thing and we never thought much about it,” says her mother, Colleen.

Colleen was introduced to a whole new world when she decided to bring her daughter along to the PNG Fashion Week.

“When I saw the advertisement in the papers, I thought why not, this is her hobby,” Colleen says.
