The renowned designer shocked the fashion world in 2013 when she pulled her Sydney, Melbourne and London stores.  

The South African born designer later revealed she made the decision to leave when her work began to take a toll on her personal life.

The star wanted to spend more time with her husband Bradley and her two children, Hunter, six, and Estella, 15.

She previously spoke to Daily Mail Australia about the major life change, and how it has altered her home life for the better.

‘You can’t do nine to five in fashion,’ she revealed. ‘It’s all encompassing. But I can control it now. I’m able to spend school holidays with my family rather than having to be in Paris for shows.’
