I am honoured to have been asked to be a guest at Sally & Sarah's latest Be You Be Fabulous Event on Ageless style.
As some of you may know I recently celebrated a milestone birthday, turning the BIG 50 in style with a week in the Victorian countryside. I don't shy away from my age or growing old, I sincerely feel blessed that I get the chance to celebrate each birthday, growing old is a privilege, and like good wine I believe I am getting better with age (wink). I feel more confident in not only what I want from life but also in my style and that is liberating!
Come along, and hear myself and 4 other fabulous woman talk about what ageless style means to us, it's sure to be a great night.
Added bonus, is the event is being held in Designer Kara Bakers' delightful salon. Getting to step into her beautiful space is reason enough to come along.

KERRY PIETROBON ( that would be me) of Harlow
Kerry is the creative force behind Melbourne fashion label Harlow, a label who’s core belief is that every woman has the right to find fashion that reflects her personality
Kerry’s love affair with Fashion started early and due to lack of “fashionable” clothing in her size, she was forced to get creative. Using inspiration from trends she was seeing in magazines, music videos, movies and on the streets she went about adjusting store patterns and whipping up outfits on weekends and putting her own twist on them.
This drive and determination to get ‘the look’ lead to the launch of Harlow in 2012.
