* Designer/Dressmaker * Speciality Corsets * Textile Designer *

A quick note from Nicki… As a professional Designer dressmaker on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia, I make corsets and special occasion wear. With many years of experience and with full pattern making skills, fitting is my speciality. I can advise you, and make your dream dress a reality.

Textiles are my passion, my art form. I love the way fabric behaves, the way it drapes and complements the body, and the opportunities to manipulate and embellish, particularly with silks, prints and sheer fabric. Oh, and heavenly trims!

We can create a one of a kind design with an individual fit; I can be your technical hands for your inspirations. it’s always exiting for a new challenge!

Online Shop

Here is the latest Special Occasion Fashion Boutique on the Sunshine Coast.

The Awaywiththefaeries boutique holds a small treasure of designer one-off unique and limited-edition fashion for immediate sale. Here you will find a piece not available anywhere else for sale. Find exclusive glamorous dresses, ballgowns, long skirts, fashion corsets, and a collection of bridalwear.

This ready to go collection of awaywiththefaeries designs are made with the love and creative passion for beautiful fashion and textiles. This is Nicki’s chance to let her wild imagination and creative skills come to life, in beautiful, small batch fabrics.

Often when designing fashion, inspiration comes from a piece of fabric, and a design is developed from the way it drapes, the colour, texture or print. These lucky finds keep the creativity alive. These fabrics will never be in a store as mass production is not possible with delicate or difficult fabrics to handle. Bias cut and draping, techniques developed from past designers and tailors, will not be found in mass production as are too labour intensive.

Although updated frequently, please keep checking in.

Follow the updates and new creations on FB and Instagram or enquire (here)

You are most welcome to book an appointment to come in and try a dress on. All boutique sales come with a complementary fitting and minor alterations are free of charge.

Alternatively, have wrapped and posted.

Ask Nicki for a payment plan to reserve your dress and pay off in instalments.
