Young designer jets off for London internship

Fashion graduate Teigan Lindley's career is off to a flying start.

Following the DuoDecim exhibition run by TAFE Queensland East Coast last month, the up-and-coming designer has been offered a three month paid internship in London working with fashion great Karl Donoghue.

The 23-year-old displayed four handcrafted wedding dresses from her label Wolff and Bone Bridal for the show, which caught the eye of her teachers and industry professionals in the audience, and said she was "over the moon” when she found out she had been selected.

"I cried, I'd never wanted something so much,” she said.

"It felt like everything I'd worked for had paid off.”

While this is the biggest break yet for Ms Lindley, it won't be her first experience in the industry.

Throughout her studies, the young designer had been creating wedding and formal dresses under her own steam.

It wasn't easy, she admitted, but pursuing her passion for fashion gave her the edge she needed to score the placement she so desperately wanted.

"It was a challenge but I think that's what led me to get that internship in London,” she said.

"Teachers saw I could work well under pressure.”

Ms Linley describes her label as "a take on Bohemian mixed with etheral styling” with "a lot of sheer tops, placement prints and bold laces.”

"There's just so many avenues you can take with bridal,” she said.

"There's always different ways you can style it.”

You can find her designs on Instagram via @_wolffandbonebridal. Her latest collection, lover lover, is viewable in the photo gallery below.
