The Style Culture Story
Welcome to Style Culture! This is a creative space where I share my personal styling knowledge and fashion design experiences, along with fun fitness stories with a touch of good food choices. I hope we can inspire you to feel great in your daily dress while being true to your individual self.
I was born and raised in Sydney, Australia. Having spent most of my younger years surrounded by family in couture dressmaking and design, it was inevitable that fashion would evolve from an interest to a calling helping others feel great about their body shape and personal style.
My career and experience spans over two decades of fashion design, retail, management, medical cosmetic and more recently fitness. With this exposure as well as becoming a mum, I feel confident in saying “I get people” I truly understand from personal experiences that like seasonal fashion, curves come and go and a wardrobe crammed full of clothes does not guarantee happiness…
After having studied and completed a Fashion Design course that incorporated design and management for Women, Men and Children’s wear, I went on to work with a number of well-established Australian fashion houses, beginning with the launch of the newly found Soho Project within Myer and moving onto iconic Australian label Covers Design by Marilyn Shaw working my way up to manager and later buyer at the age of just 24. This followed a smooth transition into managing for Lisa Ho Design Sydney. By 1998 I was given the opportunity to broaden my knowledge and life’s experiences by joining the Cosmetic Medical Industry. There I actively help launch one of Australia and New Zealand’s largest cosmetic medical companies at the time, as National Manager overseeing the day to day running of what grew to more than 35 clinics.
In 2011 the fashion world was calling, placing a hold on the Medical Cosmetic world and returning to my fashion roots officially launching the Style Culture website – www.styleculture.com.au
After hours I am a mother of two great kids (my gal and I featured here), a marathon runner that has also recently studied a Cert 3 & 4 in Fitness and wanna be healthy cook for family and friends. I truly believe if you eat well you will feel well and in return want to dress well!
