Dr Kailis - The Original Lady Boss.
Although the image of a woman in a string of pearls and a twin set can be seen as the stereotype of a demure lady Kailis is a company built by a woman who is anything but. In 1960 Patricia Kailis and her husband moved to a remote town up north where she became the local Doctor. Throughout her impressive medical career she was involved in innovative medical research which earned her not only an Order of Australia but also an Order of the British Empire.
Whilst this is already more than most people achieve in a lifetime, Dr Patricia Kailis also helped turn her time in Broome and knowledge of the local industries into one of Australia's best luxury brands and thus, Kailis was founded. A lady, an academic and and entrepreneur, Dr Patricia Kailis inspires us to be the best #LadyBosses we can be and have the confidence to work harder and be better.
While we love the iconic string of pearls with a LBD - a la Audrey Hepburn - Pearls are much more versatile and we love styling them back with street wear to create every day looks with a difference.
We worked with Kailis to create our TBFS x Kailis edit - our favourite pieces from this iconic brand worked back with our go to looks to inspire our fellow Lady Bosses to work harder and celebrate the milestones - after all, we are worth it!
