Extraordinary Kiwis - Trelise Cooper

Television (Full Length) – 2005

Fashion designer Trelise Cooper battles the clock in this Extraordinary Kiwis episode following a day in her life. With a major Australian show pending, make-up, music and more than 500 garments need to be ready (as well as her own wardrobe). Other areas of her business also need attention with local buyers and a sponsor to meet, and a school uniform design to present. Cooper is a whirl of activity, and a taskmaster to herself and her staff. But she also needs to make time to be a wife and a mother — and those trademark curls don’t look after themselves.

You can look at something and you can say there’s nothing wrong with it, but I need to look at something and go there’s everything right with it.
– Trelise Cooper
