(Global Fashion Wire) - VIDEO: Peter Dwyer from Institute of Design Ulladulla speaks with Global Fashion Wire at Fashion Palette 2010.

Peter began his creative life as an artist. While lecturing in Fine Arts at the Queensland University of Technology and Griffith University, he accepted commissions to paint murals and make sculptures all over Queensland. He also worked for the Brisbane City Council, and redesigned the streetscape for the suburb of New Farm.

A short stint as costume and set designer for the Southern Ballet Company in New Zealand inspired Peter to study fashion design at East Sydney Tech. Eventually, he presented his first collection at the Mercedes Australian Fashion Week 2000.

Design assistant positions with Nicola Finetti and Carla Zampatti gave way to his appointment as Head of the Fashion at the KVB Institute of Technology. Peter then joined the Whitehouse Institute of Design as head of the Styling Department. Here, he wrote the first Styling Degree in Australia. Peter's unique eye for beauty and design has won many awards in the hair industry. It culminated in his appointment as fashion director for the Hair Expo Finale shows for 2006 and 2007.

Peter most recently embarked on his new adventure as Head of Fashion of the brand new Institute of Design Ulladulla.
