    The sad passing of a lady that was not only beautiful of looks, but heart also. Thank you Stephanie. You will be missed, but remembered with laughter

  1. Sad to here of Stephanie’s passing, in 1968 I attended her Deportment Classes and had a wonderful passing out parade modelling our creations at one of the old Hotel’s in Perth.
    Stephanie wouldn’t have know it but she aided me in being accepted with Ansett Airlines in 1971, as walking with books on our head and gaining an insight into how to wear fashion stood me in good stead.
    I was working at the time for Wapet and my work colleague Lynn McClements now MacKenzie joined me for the course.
    Wonderful memories,
    Thank you Stephanie RIP
