03/06/2009 by Natalie Tsirimokos

Like the delicate Shakuhachi flute, which looks like a very simply constructed bamboo instrument, but is painstakingly difficult to learn to play, Jessie White's clothing label of the same name is also deceptively intricate. Having eschewed formal fashion training, her career as a designer was born 8 years ago out of a strong desire to create necessity and instinct.

Canberra's VIP fashionistas filled the city's newest hot-spot, Tongue & Groove for a night of Chandon, canapés and Defining Fashion.
