Here is Alison Lantry, creator of Sophie & Jack and her story...

1. So tell us a bit about yourself?
My name is Alison and I live in the beautiful Hunter Valley in NSW with my wonderful husband and my two gorgeous children, Sophie, 4 and Jack, 1.  I design and handmake quality hair accessories that are both beautiful and affordable.  I am extremely blessed and lucky to be to able to work at home doing something I absolutely love, while both my children are young.

2. What inspired you to start making hair accessories? Was it hard to get started?
I started to design and make hair clips for my daughter after finding similar accessories in designer boutiques were quite expensive.

Once I started, I found I enjoyed and loved creating these gorgeous accessories so much that I decided to make them for friends and family and it really just grew quite quickly from there. The hardest part was having faith in my passion and love for Sophie & Jack Designs and taking the leap to put my products in the public eye. However, my fear was unwarranted as the response has been wonderful and beyond even my highest expectations.

3. So as a WAHM, how do you manage it? What’s your day like?
Busy!  I do most of my creating during sleep times and at night when both children are in bed.  There is also alot of time spent on the computer, emailing, sourcing and shopping for supplies, and processing and packing orders.

And then of course, there are two children and a household to run... let's just say the ironing pile is growing larger by the day!  

4. Which designers, artists or creative people are you inspired by (or in general)?
Fabric, fabric, fabric!  I love all the cute Japanese fabrics and I spend way too much time browsing the multitude of fabric designs and gorgeous supplies.

There are also a collection of amazingly creative people on madeit.com.au, which is another favourite place I like to spend time browsing. 

5. Which piece is your favourite?
Oh, I really do love them all!  I am very fussy in choosing what I make and only sell pieces that I truly love!  I particularly love the hair ties because they are practical and can be used every day, plus they have the added bonus of being gorgeous!  Probably the "Dear Little Deer" hair elastics are my favourite - they are so cute!

6. What’s next for Sophie & Jack?
I have so many new ideas and designs in mind and I look forward to getting crafty and making them a reality.

  1. I think I would pick the Monstar Kids Crochet Jeans (so divine!) because it brings out the red with the red buttons and the crochet has the same lovely flower outline as the hair ties.

  2. I would choose the Alex & Ant denim bird dress. I love birds and I love these style denim dresses. My daughter already has one...

    I would put it together with the gorgeous Coolibah Bright Dress as the hair ties have quite a bit of detail, perfect for a solid colour outfit.
