Fashion designer Peter Morrissey is an old friend who tells many fantastic stories. One of my favourites comes from his childhood. Peter is one of six children raised by two madly in-love, positive parents. They brought up their kids in Sydney within very modest means. Peter talks of a small family home where they all shared bedrooms, bathrooms and a dining room table with only two chairs. His mother sometimes shopped for clothes at GoodWill and his brothers and sisters all wore each other’s hand-me-downs.
Each morning, Peter’s father woke his children with the same message: ‘Kids it’s time to get up and get dressed to go dreaming’.
Every. Single. Day. Get dressed to go dreaming … what a beautiful affirmation…
