Q & A with Sylvy Earl

.

A bit about Sylvy:

While living and working in Brisbane as a physio, I enrolled in a night time millinery course on a whim and ended up loving it even more than I imagined I would. After moving back to my hometown of Adelaide a couple of years ago, I decided to make the transition to full time millinery.

.

Tell us something we might not know about millinery.

Coco Chanel and Bill Cunningham were both milliners before becoming better known for fashion and photography.

.

What’s the best career advice anyone’s given you/ or what advice would you give to someone starting out in a creative career?

The best business advice I’ve been given is to just go all in! Give it everything you’ve got for the best chance of success.

.

What have you found most valuable about operating out of a coworking studio space like Brick+Mortar?

I have been lucky enough to get to know some really lovely and talented designers, makers and small business whiz’s during my time here at Brick+Mortar, and love that I am part of such a supportive, creative community and all the professional benefits and opportunities that brings.

.

What’s your favourite app and why?

I have just started playing with the Lumosity app. A super nerdy, brain training game that is supposed to improve memory and attention, but definitely doesn’t do much for productivity!

.

What’s your go-to order at Brick+Mortar cafe?

A piccolo and a slice of whatever has been freshly baked in-house that morning.
