Born in Malta in 1962, Brian trained as a coachbuilder working at the
high end of the automotive restoration /prototype industry, gaining an
international reputation for quality and excellence in vehicle
construction. Lord Elgin, the World President of the 20-Ghost Club, the
oldest Rolls Royce Club in the World, described him as "without peer and
certainly the best he had seen", and Daimler Chrysler Chairman Jurgen
Schremp acknowledged him as "one of the best car builders in the world".
Currently Brian is a consultant to the Fox Car Collection and has
recently co-founded the AutoHorizon Foundation. This has been
established to promote Australian automotive innovation/ manufacturing

while further delivering charitable outcomes to the community.
* Focus on Fashion -Forum, 1st of June, 9.30am, and 11.30am with
VCAA State Reviewer and Eco-fashion designer CJ Baxter
CJ Baxter runs the Melbourne-based fashion and accessories label Twisted
Fig, which creates one-off and limited-run pieces, with environmental
and ethical issues at the forefront of its design ethos.
Often more costume than fashion, Baxter aims to 'stitch stories into
cloth' and encourage a sense of wonder and imagination in the wearer-
pieces that people will want to have fun wearing.
With most pieces created using reclaimed materials and pre-loved
existing garments, Baxter is passionate about operating her business in
the most environmentally sustainable way possible, offering her clients
a more ethical and imaginative alternative to main stream fashion
