Fashion By Appointment Launch

It’s hard to believe our Fashion By Appointment launch was only a few months ago, and with everything going on, I’d forgotten just how much of a great start 2020 actually got off to. Our launch was months in the making, and on the day, it was one filled with such excitement, joy and a little exhaustion of course, but it was pure fashion bliss.

Clare Press, Sigrid Thornton, Shaynna Blaze, Kate Ceberano, Melissa Singer… A room full of names you’d know and names you don’t, came together to enjoy fashion, and that’s the power of it all – the way fashion connects complete strangers and friends alike.

Fashion can bring us joy

And whether we’re able to go out now or not, fashion still has that power to do that – connect us, make us feel good, inspire us and give us purpose. Every day when we get up, regardless if we’re leaving the house or not, fashion can make every body feel good, and it’s every bit as joyous now as it was in March when we hosted our little fashion soiree.

These photos perfectly sum up the joy that it can bring; the emotion, the excitement, the positivity, and the real connection that fashion can create between women.

We may not have many exciting places to go right now, but we can still wear what makes us happy. Create a wardrobe that brings you joy and wear that wardrobe as much as you can – even in times like this. If it feels good, wear it – out, in, at home, wherever you are.

Wear your favourite outfit for no reason other than the simplest reason: it brings you joy.
