#LMFF What's the Industry Verdict?

During Melbourne Fashion Week, I always look forward to the forums - the fashion and the glamour is wonderful, but its the business side of the rag trade that is most complex to me. Last week Colonial First State and The Melbourne Review presented the LMFF Industry Forum: Whats the Industry Verdict? Hosted by the flame haired Glynis Traill-Nash, guest speakers were strategically placed in the audience to encourage open discussion, and included some of favourites: The talented designer Megan Park, Arthur Galan, Clea Garrick (Limedrop) were amongst the industry proffessionals. The subjects was broad and it was difficult to grasp the scope in such a short hour, but non the less, I went away with some gems of info, and I am more excited than ever to be a designer in Australia.

Starting this journey into photography feels like catching up with an old friend – my trusty Canon camera, a gift from my filmmaker dad over a decade ago. While life kept me busy raising my wonderful daughters, Sahana and Dylana, I put photography on hold for bedtime stories. But now, as I dive into learning about product photography, my creativity sparks. Behind the lens, I'm not just snapping pictures; I'm capturing memories and stories, a talent I believe runs in the family. The classroom has become a safe space filled with inspiration, where my classmates and I cheer each other on. Here, my knack for styling fits right in, blending with the skills of others. And our teachers, full of wisdom and encouragement, make every click of the camera feel like a chance for something great.

Cooking live on TVSN with Peter Mason

  Cooking live on TV with Satvik Foods on TVSN was another thrilling experience, filled with flavourful "here's something I prepared earlier" dishes, nerves, and lots of fun! My sister joined me for the first time for an intro, and we shared our passion for Ayurvedic-inspired cooking with Peter Mason and our live audience. Thank you to everyone who tuned in and supported us on this exciting culinary journey!

RADA CAMPBELL - MOTHER & ENTREPRENEUR,  SATVIK FOODS.  TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF- WHO YOU ARE, AND WHERE ARE YOU FROM? I am a mother, creative and entrepreneur. I was born into the Hare Krishna religion in Northern NSW and spent most of my childhood running wild with my 8 siblings. Growing up, I was deeply influenced by stories and traditions of the varied spiritual doctrines my eccentric mother subscribed to. This left me with a rich curiosity, and audaciousness to seek out the world for myself. I spent many years overseas and returned to my roots to raise my own daughters in the little rainforest village of Uki. WHAT SETS YOUR SOUL ON FIRE AND BRINGS SUNSHINE INTO YOUR LIFE?   Connecting deeply with people, dancing like nobody's watching, swimming in the ocean during a storm, and creating with my hands - whether I’m sewing, drawing, cooking or writing.
