My name is Wendy Trinet, I am French from Paris and have been living in Melbourne for the past 15 years. I moved to Melbourne for Love after meeting my now husband on a sailing trip in Turkey. We now have two little boys: Floyd and Hunter – I named my womenswear label “eyes on floyd” after Floyd was born.

It is part of who I am in a way. My great - grandmother was a fashion designer and used to make these amazing crochet clothes. I always knew that I wanted to work in fashion as it was all that I can think off.
