Driven and optimistic, Annalise is also a creative and talented businesswoman with a commitment to designing beautiful products that reflect her dedication to agreen lifestyle.
In August 2009, she launched her first collection of eco-friendly underwear for fuller-figured women. “Annalise” was exclusive to Bras N Things, and she designed each piece in the range with an emphasis not only on fashion, but on organic and recycled materials. Following its sell-out success, she extended the range to include sleepwear in November 2011. She then moved on to design her signature “Annalise” lingerie and sleepwear collections, which were exclusive to Big W.
In January 2016, Annalise became the Australian ambassador for Flamingo Sunglasses, a Spanish eyewear label. She is set to design her own collection of sunglasses with the brand which will be available internationally, launching in October 2016.
Annalise’s credentials as a designer also include a double major in jewellery and sculpture from the University of NSW College of Fine Arts. Annalise launched her signature jewellery collection “Annalise” in 2011, which is now available online at http://www.annalise.com.au/jewellery.
In November 2008, Annalise launched Love Lunch as a catering food service. A passionate vegetarian cook, Annalise’s recipes draw on her extensive travels through Asia, Europe and the Middle East, as well as her childhood growing up on a biodynamic farm. Each week, she lovingly plans and prepares her menus, with an emphasis on organic, seasonal produce and delicious dairy- and gluten-free foods. Love Lunch continues as an online platform for Annalise’s healthy recipes on the website, Facebook page and Instagram.
Outside media and business commitments, Annalise willingly lends her time and energy to a number of cancer charities. Having lost her father to the disease, she works closely with the Starlight Foundation, Cancer Council and Olivia Newton-John Cancer Centre to raise vital money and awareness.
She’s also a tireless advocate for animal rights and has lent her name to campaigns for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), the Human Society International (HSI), and the RSPCA.
