Australians spend more money in women’s apparel per capita than any other nation in the world, we are one of the highest spenders of online and high street clothing ,we buy from far and near adopting styles that are removed from our reality, we as consumers need to know and buy our own brands and designers, the creative people who are developing the Australian look.
in this beautiful land of ours, with an eclectic population we are spending more and more in women’s apparel, unfortunately the results are not visible to the naked eye.
As a citizen of the world, I have not only the right but the responsibility to impart the knowledge I acquired from living and working with fashion and style in 3 very different countries, Brazil, England and now Australia.
I think as a nation we have yet to find our blueprint of style, we buy clothes to experiment, to see if that particular look will suit who we are, quickly discarding the undesirable clothing in the nearest op shop.
We need to STOP this habit, we need to start buying with purpose, know what suits us, the colours and shapes that will enhance our looks,
I am here to share my experienced and knowledge with those interested in boosting their confidence, by helping people with their purchases, by asking the right questions, searching for the right look to enhance your best features, by helping you to understand your body shape and how a well made outfit will make a massive difference in the final look and most of all to encourage my clients to buy Australian Fashion.
By using the services of a personal stylist,who can balance necessity, features to be highlighted, cost and quality can change one’s life. I assure you the benefits will far outweigh the costs.
We can spend a couple of hours together but you are benefitting from more than 30 years of my experience
If you think this might interest you, just give me a call – no strings attached. It will be my pleasure to talk to you.

Rachael Zoe, the acclaimed stylist, was in Melbourne, promoting Australian Designers at Chadstone Shopping Centre,
Dozens of people filled the first rows of the catwalk show. The night was glamorous with Rachel presenting the show surrounded by a very keen audience taking in every look parading in front of them.
it was a great opportunity to check the trends for the upcoming season.
The styling was beautiful, Rachael Zoe and the team involved done a great job with accessories, hair and make up, the models were also beautiful not to mention the clothes that were the true stars of the night.
The National Gallery of Victoria in conjunction with the National Craft Initiative present a series of lectures and discussions on the future of craft and design in Australia and the world, with local and international speakers.
I take interests in the subject as a designer, but most of all as an individual who promotes homegrown talent and share a passion for all things Australian.
One of the speakers is Antonia Syme from the “Australian Tapestry Workshop”, whose work I have mentioned on an earlier post.
With countries like Japan and England promoting a recovery of homemade arts and crafts, remember the Alexander McQueen dress fro the royal wedding, to mention only one such initiative.
Japan and its designers are striving to keep their craft traditions alive, we need to do the same,
