"While other children played with toys, I preferred going to dad's office to play with colorful fabric swatches, which I eventually sewed into glamorous clothes for my dolls."
A deep emotional response to the myriad colors of the Universe has been the principal influence in Janet's life. She was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia, where her father specialized in luxury textiles and her mother was a fashion designer. Through these influences Janet extended her early love of color to fabric and design. "While other children played with toys, I preferred going to dad's office to play with colorful fabric swatches, which I eventually sewed into glamorous clothes for my dolls. By the time I was 12 years old, I was designing and making most of my own clothes," recalls Janet. Nobody was surprised when she refused to train as a teacher and began working instead at one of Australia's leading atelier of women's apparel.
Thanks to her father's international business connections she was introduced at an early age to the people and cuisines of many different countries. The vibrant colors of these new ingredients and flavors appealed to her as she helped her mother cook new dishes, which were very exotic in suburban Australia in the '50s. Janet expanded this passion when she became a professional chef and studied hotel management.
On her first visit to Bali in 1976, Janet felt an immediate affinity for the island and its people. Subsequent trips increased her appreciation of Bali's unique culture and culminated in her relocating permanently in 1988, when she married a Balinese man and had two children, Nino and Liliana.
"Bali has a reputation for unleashing people's creativity and, since settling here, I've become somewhat of an entrepreneur, with a handicrafts and a silver jewelry workshop, amongst others. My most recent venture is 'Goddess on the Go!' It's a collection of eco friendly travel and leisure clothing for women. As a frequent traveler, I've experienced the need for versatile, easy to launder clothing with simple lines that I could accessorize with my colorful gem-laden jewelry. The garments are designed to feel sensual but also be comfortable. Unable to locate such garments in Bali, I decided to go ahead and create such a collection for myself and other like-minded women."
The Midnight Twist dress is beautiful! I bought it for a cruise my husband and I recently took and it made me feel very pretty. I only wish it came in other colors because the style is so flattering and easy to wear. Thank you!
Janet, the black, long-sleeved wrap arrived it is so pretty on, especially over a light-weight tank top or sleeveless dress, and the fabric is so nice and soft. It fits perfectly. I usually wear a size 4 (U.S.) and sometimes even an extra small in tops, and the size small of yours is just right for me...to help others deciding on sizing.I haven't cleaned it yet, so I can't attest to how it holds up, but it looks very well made and of high quality material. I'm sure to get a lot of fun use out of it for years....thanks so very much! And it arrived so quickly! Just love Novica!
Just got my new Larimar earrings. Love your work, design and amazing color of the stones! Thanks Novica for quick delivery.

FINDING YOUR SIZE
Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.
BUST / CHEST
Measure around the fullest part of chest under the arms and over the shoulder blades keeping the tape measure level.
Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.
Measure around the body approximately 1.5" below the natural waist (above). This is the area where most pants and skirts actually fit.
Standing with your heels together, measure around the fullest part of the body approx 7"-8" below the waist.
Measure around the base of the neck keeping the tape measure comfortably loose.
Bend elbow slightly and starting at the center back of the neck, measure across the shoulder, to the elbow and down to the wrist.
