Selling clothes from her parents’ garage, to running a fashion empire, Jane has become one of the most influential figures in Australia and beyond. Having moved with her parents to Sydney at eight years old, for Jane, home isn’t defined by the place she’s in, but the people around her.
WHAT DOES HOME MEAN TO YOU?
“Australia is home for me and is a place that has taken me in, while I still feel a strong connection with China. But I don’t feel attached to specifics. Maybe there are scents, smells, foods that feel like home and I’m not aware of it. Home for me is the people I surround myself with, it could be anywhere, but it’s family, it’s with the people you feel comfortable enough to shout at and be yourself with.”
