Is the story of a young ambitious girls dream of becoming a fashion empire.
Mylisse Crystal was born in 1986 on the Central Coast, New South Wales Australia. She grew up in a less fortunate family with her elder sister. They spent most of their childhood playing Barbies and dress ups. She would make new glamorous outfits for her dolls from scrap materials.
In her later childhood years, her family relocated to a small quiet town by the sea in Northern New South Wales. With her new ocean surroundings, her true creativity began to flow. She spent a lot of her time in her room, drawing and painting lost in her own little world. Not having a lot of money meant she had to use her imagination and creativity when it came to fashion. She would sift through the op shops to find hidden treasures to cut up and hand stitch into new styles, she added embellishments and fabric paint.
With her imaginative spirit and passion for all things wonderful, she set herself free on a journey in pursuit of her cherished aspiration of one day becoming an international renowned fashion designer. At the age of 17, Mylisse moved out of home with her sister to the Gold Coast. She worked full time in medium to high-end designer fashion boutiques. Gaining valuable experience styling and fitting customers, she was surrounded by exquisite designs from all around the world.
In 2009 she completed her Diploma in Applied Fashion Design and Technology at Australian Institute of Fashion Design.
