Design Hunter™ Q&A with Fleur Wood

By staying true to her own philosophy, Fleur Wood has become a successful Australian fashion designer and now, author.

16 Mar 2012

With a signature style that combines her love for vintage detailing with beautiful feminine colours and textiles, Fleur Wood’s strongest design influences come from the Far East. Having spent a two year sabbatical in India during her 20′s, during which time she designed ranges for the culture-preservation project of the Tibetan Exile Government, Fleur continues to weave remnants of this exotic culture into her collections. Here she talks with Habitusliving.com about some of her personal design favourites.
