International Day of the Girl Child

Sylvia was strong, determined and unrivalled, it's easy to see why we named our polo dress after her, Harper Polo Dress

Sylvia was born in 1895, she rose through the tennis world showing her skill, talent and determination in every match.

Sylvia won the Australian Championships singles title in 1924.  In 1927 and 1930 she would take to the court and once again reach the finals, however she lost at these matches.

Harper also won the Women's doubles titles in three consecutive years at the Australian Championships in 1923, 1924 and 1925. As Sylvia was smashing out history on the court, in Daking House, Sydney Lesley Winter Reid was starting our history as LW Reid. 

In 1924, Sylvia Harper was ranked World number 10 in Women's tennis.  

Today, we celebrate and encourage all Aussie girls to embrace their strengths and help shape Australia's history in the coming decades.
