Swimwear designer Lisa Burke of Lisa Blue was kicking off Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim on July 19th, 2012 at 7pm. ‘Lisa Blue began with one girl’s dream’. A few years ago I, Lisa Burke, traveled to Tonga with the sole purpose to swim with humpback whales. I came face to face with these 15 meters, 20 ton, gentle, ancient giants of the ocean. No words can describe this experience. The mother and baby whale approached me. The baby came so close to me as though to touch me that I backed up. The eyes, only a foot away, looked straight into my soul. My heart burst open. In that moment I promised that I would do what I could to help protect them and their environment. In spite of the history of humans killing these angelic beings they look at us with such immense unconditional love. Two years later, in Byron Bay, after I had been ill for several months and so had not been in the water, I saw whales near the horizon about 6 kms away. At the time I had no fitness, was frail, underweight (due to having been seriously unwell) and was very sad.
