Fashion designer Collette Dinnigan, and her husband Bradley Cocks, welcomed their son Hunter Desmond David on November 5. Desmond is the name of Collette’s father, while Bradley’s dad is named David. Hunter Cocks was born at the Mater Hospital in Sydney weighing 4 kg (around 9lb). Hunter joins big sister Estella, aged 8, the daughter of Collette’s former partner, television presenter Richard Wilkins.

Collette was born in South Africa and grew up in New Zealand. She opened her first store in Sydney in the 1990s, exporting her designs all over the world. She was the first Australian designer to launch a ready-to-wear collection in Paris, and her range is now stocked in her stores in Sydney, Melbourne and London, as well as in David Jones department stores and Target. Collette’s name was featured on the blog last year.

Bradley is originally from Canada, and is a self-described luxury travel entrepeneur who is passionate about the environment and surfing. He has written for magazines such as Vogue Italia and The Australian Financial Review. He and Collette were married last year in Italy.
