Since then, Jank has gone on to live in Paris and New York. I followed her career with interest as she created breath taking floral neckpieces and was regularly photographed by The Sartorialist. She showed again in 2008 with a collection featuring birds on elegant gowns, with accompanying bird neckpieces.
In her capacity as a Creative consultant in Fashion, Jank has collaborated with Australian jeweller Fairfax and Roberts and The Sydney Dance company. In an interview with The Vine she describes her style as "Over dressed, mostly" and cites Iris Apfel and Man Ray as influences. A woman after my own heart.
I admire her as a talented Australian who has demonstrated that her creativity is translatable across different countries, genres and industries. A uniquely beautiful individual, I have no doubt I'll continue to follow her career with interest.
