To Live a Life of Passion you Must be Fearless!

Kassandra Behrendt, CEO & Creative Director of Pagoni the label, keynote speaker at the Women's Network Australia, August 2021.   "Everyone has an opinion on how you should live your life...EVERYONE.

You know yourself best, success is within you, tap into your experience and knowledge, it's all there!" says Kassandra Behrendt, our keynote speaker.   Janelle Bostock CEO of Women’s Network Australia, did it again.

Pagoni Autumn-Winter Fashion Show 2021

And it’s a wrap! Another successful Pagoni Fashion Show in the bag! A smaller venue, more intimate and it worked a dream! As my guests started arriving the excitement was palpable! Once the runway show started, the excitement grew! The models graced the runway, walking slowly, stopping frequently. It was a shorter runway at this Show, guests were closer to the models and were able to admire the intricate details of each piece. The Emcee – Helen Glover was superb. She kept my guests informed and entertained. Helen had a running commentary throughout the runway show to keep my guests informed of how each piece was crafted and in fact, what inspired me to design each piece. The Pagoni lucky door prizes...

My Very First Feather Necklace!

This red feather necklace is my VERY FIRST feather design that I have ever designed for Pagoni! I look back on this, 4 years later, and I marvel at the beauty and intricacy but more than that…I marvel at the boldness of this design. At the time I thought…”who would be bold enough to wear this?” And 4 years later, I’m happy to report that actually many of my clients are bold enough to wear Pagoni! In fact they are PROUD to wear Pagoni. And what’s more…Pagoni is now recognisable!  Many of my clients have told me that they have been stopped and asked…”is this a Pagoni design?” How exciting!! When I sat out to design jewellery for Pagoni, I...

Dancing CEO's Fundraiser Event

When I first bought this gown I knew I would never wear it, because my scars from the double mastectomy were so obvious! EVERYONE would see them!   I’ve often spoken of my breast cancer journey, it’s not a secret. In fact, I readily share my difficult journey in order to inspire other women who are going through the same pain. However, I have NEVER actually shown you the scars on my body. I’m actually embarrassed by them. It’s one thing to talk about scars…another to put yourself out there, to be judged. But when Elena Gosse invited me to be one of her VIP guests at the Dancing CEOs last Saturday, I thought to myself “I’m going to be...

I Love My Body!

I love my body! It’s my birthday tomorrow and I’m reminded of how grateful I am to STILL be here. My breast cancer brought me so close to the end 13 years ago. So I am grateful for making it one more year. One more year free of cancer. One more year of good health. One more year with my family. One more year to inspire others and remind you all that we are here to LOVE and BE loved. I love my wrinkles. My saggy skin. The cellulite dimples. The reconstructed breasts which are not as beautiful as my original ones but still give me shape. I love my surgery scars. I love the extra weight around my tummy...
