15 March 2012: A former economics advisor to Greens Senator Bob Brown with a PhD in economic policy, Hannah Parris is more accustomed to inhabiting a man’s world but she is putting her principles to practical use by launching an unlikely enterprise – a fashion label.

Called Audrey Blue, Hannah’s label showcases eco-friendly designs using materials sourced from her trips to a certified organic and fair trade collective in central India and Kolkata.

Launched this week in Hannah’s award-winning eco-home in Canberra, Audrey Blue will showcase pieces designed to take any woman from the boardroom, to nights out, to weekends with kids.
