AUSTRALIA'S COUNTRY MUSIC SWEETHEART TO SERENADE LONDON FASHION WEEK VIPS / by Kylie Cobb

At just 16 years old, Australian country music sweetheart, Bridget O'Shannessy is set to serenade London Fashion Week VIPs in an exclusive viewing of Jeff Garner's much anticipated Spring/Summer Prophetik collection.

Dressing Kings of Leon, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus, to name a few, Garner will be showing Prophetik's new line of distinctively romantic shapes, sustainable, eco-friendly fashion, Nevermore, in The Tower of London this week.  

In keeping with the Tennessee-based fashion house's strong country roots, Bridget O'Shannessy's fresh, contemporary country sound is the perfect choice to accompany the Spring/Summer 2017 collection on the catwalk.

Endearing and engaging with a natural talent for crafting tunes that appeal to a wide audience, it is no surprise this young Australian is attracting the attention of industry taste-makers world-wide.

“Bridget is most definitely the real thing. The complete package with a great sound, great look and great attitude. To me, she is already a star and I know people will love her sound," said Louie Shelton, world-renowned guitarist and music producer.

Don't let O'Shannessy's age fool you. Already an award-winning singer-songwriter, Bridget first sang on stage at just nine; has opened for Gotye’s ‘The Basics’; performed at numerous high profile Australian festivals; and showcased her original work as a finalist in a Nashville songwriting competition and on the cat walk at Eco Fashion Week in Vancouver.

Following hot on the trail of her debut single release at one of Australia's premiere cultural events, the Queensland Royal Exhibition Show, it’s all guns blazing for this young country artist as she heads to London this week to accompany one of America's top 40 artists, the award-winning designer, Garner.

"I am so honoured Jeff invited me to accompany Prophetik's new Nevermore collection at London Fashion Week. And in The Tower of London no less! It really is a dream come true for a young Australian artist like me," said Bridget, "I can't wait to see the new line too. Jeff's designs are so distinctive and unique. His clothes are like heaven to wear."
