Where and what did you study and what year did you graduate?
Bachelor of Laws, 2000, Queensland University of Technology.
Bachelor of Business (International Business), 2000, Queensland University of Technology.
I have also studied some fashion design subjects at Metropolitan South Institute of TAFE in Brisbane.

What did you head after graduating?
After leaving university I pursued a career as a property lawyer until I left a few years later to start Jaime Beattie Accessories.

When did you launch your own business?
In July 2004.

What motivated you to start your own business?
I was desperate to do something creative and it seemed like a better lifestyle choice than working in a law firm 60 plus hours a week.

How would you describe your business to someone who didn’t know you?
My team and I design and create limited edition fashion accessories which are handmade in our Brisbane studio.

How would you describe the products you design to someone who hadn’t seen them?
The current range consists of fabric bags, purses, hair accessories and jewellery. Bright colours and bold prints have featured heavily in collections to date. Rather than follow particular trends our accessories are designed to allow the wearer to express their personality or stand out in a crowd.

What inspires your design projects?
It varies depending on the collection. Mostly, childhood memories, fabrics and materials, found objects, traditional arts and crafts.

What are the next steps for you?
I’m always working on new products and the next collection. We’d like to establish a real presence in the Australian fashion accessories market as a label who offers something a bit different to the mainstream.
