Perth designer Jaime Lee Major has been thrust into the international spotlight after Kimbra donned one of her glittering gowns at the Grammy Awards.
Kimbra was dressed in Major's creation as she accompanied Gotye to accept two Grammy Awards for Somebody That I Used To Know, in which she featured.
The international No.1 tune took out Grammys for Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance. Gotye also won Best Alternative Album for Making Mirrors.
"It's very surreal, it's only just starting to kick in," Major said.
"Apparently the press enquiries have started flooding in at hyper speed."
Major flew to LA with Kimbra to dress her in the gown, made of several layers of sheer material and covered in diamantes and two kilograms of pearls.
"There was about 100 man-hours involved in the creation of this dress," Major said.
"My hands are blistered from all the hand-sewing."
In keeping with Kimbra's quirky dress sense, Major said she had mermaids and Disney in mind when designing her latest gown.
"I wanted to see Kimbra on the red carpet looking really beautiful and elegant but then juxtapose that seriousness by injecting a bit of Disney fun into the dress," she said.
"The pearls and the train give the dress an augmented mermaid feel, which is perfect for Kimbra."
It's not the first time Major has dressed the Kiwi star; she first secured a collaboration with Kimbra in 2011 when the Cameo Lover singer was searching for Parklife outfits.
Major also designed two dresses for Kimbra's appearance at the ARIAs; a gold lace, Swarovski encrusted full length dress for her performance and second a lilac and gold number mini for her award acceptance.
The dresses each took more than a month to create and were worth $6,000 a pop.
"I've been working with Kimbra for about two years now, so I always have her in the back of my mind when designing new dresses because she has so many events and it's highly likely if I show her something, she'll want to wear it," Major said.
Major tweeted several photos of Kimbra throughout the night, from her pre-Grammy dressing room through to her onstage with Gotye.
With her first international award ceremony now under her belt, Major is hungry for more.
"This is my first time at the Grammy's, but I'm hoping it wont be my last," she said.
"It really has been so surreal, everything feels so heightened.
"Kimbra and I went shoe shopping on Saturday and she literally ground Miu Miu [on Rodeo Drive] to a halt on Saturday.
"We're about to hit the after-parties, with two Grammy's, I suspect things are going to get even crazier."
