“There’s no doubt shows like The Block have made curtains (especially sheers) cool again and someone reaping the rewards is Valley Vogue’s Belinda Sinclair. However, she argues they’ve never been out of fashion in her 15-year career!
Belinda was offered a traineeship at a custom curtain and interiors store in the Hunter Valley straight out of school. “I was there for nine years, the last three, being on the road looking after the measuring and quoting which I loved.”
After a break from working and having two children, Belinda and her husband decided she should give starting her own curtain business a go (“Let’s just say I wasn’t a good stay at home mum, but that’s a story for another day!”) and Valley Vogue was born in 2o11. Towards the end of of 2013, she went into a shared studio space in Newcastle’s King Street with long time friend and interior designer Melissa Webster of The Gather Collective. They’ve been there ever since.”
