Butterfly on a Pin Sydney Launch
Celebrate the publication of Butterfly on a Pin with author and iconic fashion designer, Alannah Hill.
Unflinching, funny, shocking, inspiring and tender, this is a story like no other. Alannah Hill, one of Australia’s most successful fashion designers, created an international brand that defied trends with ornamental, sophisticated elegance, beads, bows and vintage florals.
This extraordinary book is the fierce and intelligent account of how a freckle-faced teenage runaway metamorphosed into a trailblazer and a true original. Alannah wants to send a real message of hope to all girls who may have been marginalised, sidelined and could slip through the cracks of life. We come to know and empathise with the incredible Alannah Hill – the woman, not the brand.
‘You might expect fluff and fashion … what you get is harrowing, full-strength, funny and deeply satisfying’ – Zoë Foster Blake
