The 2008 Qantas Spirit of Youth Awards were launched at Ravesi’s at Bondi and organised by Sally Burleigh Public Relations. Ecolimo was there to assist picking up guests to attend the launch. I picked up self taught fashion designer Ben Pollitt. Ben, who has his own label Friedrich Gray, was the winner of the 2007 award in the fashion design section. Ben told me how exciting it was to be in the industry and of his new plans. Also on hand was fashion icon Peter Morrissey. Peter is the mentor in the fashion design section and was mentor to Ben through the 2007 award.
