As part of our aim to connect and support our alumnae and past parents, we launched the Normo Network Business Directory last year. One of the businesses on the Directory is twoface LABEL knitwear, founded by two of our alumnae, Paulina Bartucciotto (del Rio) and Christina Halugin (Wehrhahn), from the Class of 1995. twoface LABEL is grounded by ethical and sustainable beliefs, creating quality craftsmanship made using Australian fibres with a Luxe Vintage Sportif aesthetic.
Paulina and Christina have created a special Bursary Cardi, pledging to donate 40% from each purchase of the design to the Loreto Normanhurst Bursary (Welfare) Fund. Made using 100% Australian Merino wool with 100% silk pockets, we think the cardigan is beautiful in its own right. But there is something extra special in knowing that it contributes to giving the gift of a Loreto education.
The cardigan retails for $460, but Paulina and Christina are offering it to alumnae and LN community members at a special discount, for $420! Simply enter the code Loreto2022 on the website. Be sure to make your purchase before 1 April to receive the cardi by Mothers' Day. We are delighted to see twoface LABEL on our Normo Network Business Directory and to be collaborating with Paulina and Christina.

When did you both meet?
We met in kindergarten and instantly connected and spent our school years getting in trouble for talking and laughing too much.
What did you enjoy at Loreto Normanhurst?
We loved the school spirit especially at the Music Festival. In our time, the Music Festival was held at school; the girls would be chanting their colour chants as loud as possible in the main quad. It was electrifying.
What did you do after Loreto Normanhurst?
After school we both went to university. Paulina did a Bachelor of Education followed by Interior Design. Christina did a Bachelor of Fine Arts followed by an Advanced Diploma in Fashion Design. During our university years, we worked together and ran a Diversional Therapy program for women with disabilities until it was time to follow our own chosen paths.
What prompted you to start a business together?
We always dreamed of having a business together. When our kids were a little older and we turned forty we knew it was the time.
Why do you want to give back to the school through your business?
Our daughters both go to Loreto Normanhurst and it is great to see that the amazing Normo spirit is still there. The decision to support the Bursary Program was easy, we wanted to support Loreto Normanhurst and give the gift and opportunity to girls that would not have the same opportunities as us and our girls.
As our Alumnae Year Group Challenge comes to a close, we celebrate the generosity of those who supported our Bursary Pro… More...
