WORK for us - Internships, part time admin positions avalable soon.

Have you ever thought of working in a small tourism comapany?
Or perhaps even an event company, or a marketing, or even a PR company...
Well thats what you would get to do with us... 
Life is never dull thats for sure.

Award winners in the 2008 Melbourne Awards.
We are looking for someone who loves what we stand for, for where we are, and for what we do.
It may sound simple.. but we have not found such people very easily.
With several awards to our name, and more to come, we're keen for an energetic individual to join us.

Some of our team are moving on to do other things, we'll miss them, but its a great time to make an impression.. shine brightly as help will be needed, and there is room to develop.
Laughter in our group of hosts is always present

Think about what you can bring with you.. Do you know the city, and those who work it? Do you like to write blogs? Do you enjoy making people feel as though they have no cares in the world? Are you good with databases, and relationship building? Do you have a good phone manner that will be both professional and at ease? Are you full of youthful ideas, but also  able to manage clients of wealth and prestige...

 We are a small team, and need someone who wants to grow with us...

Depending on how you fit, and what you are interested in, we can discuss Internships, or hours of employement.

Tight knit team, that has a lot of fun.

Start time we'd like as late June,             so in the mean time email Fiona...   
With researched proposals. More info will come in weeks to come.

Cheers, and thanks. Fiona

Its cold out, but CELEBRATE with us.... and maybe get a bargain too

I have some room in my closet, do you??... I only do because we have had a huge clean out...
And then I get a gorgeous invitation to Celebrate with our good friends at Nevenka.

This is truly a one off event not to be missed. I will certainly be there!
I have a few Nevenka pieces, and the fabrics are what got me the first time, the amazing prints, Vintage cottons and lace details, make you feel fabulous any old day!
Prices I am told are to be wholesale ( they don't do that much these days for the good stuff!!! ) and will range from $50-250 with sizes 6-14 available. ( something for all)

Sponsored by Yering Station - customers will be treated to champagne and wine to help them shop throughout the weekend. - Now thats what I call a Celebration.

I've had a chat with Rosemary, Emily and the team, and the fabrics I love are to be used again - having spent hours designing a new collection Rosemary is using her very much loved vintage fabric and trims library. - - I'm loving the idea of re-using past fabric and trims into brand new garments in a sustainable matter!! How fabulous.. !!

As a past dress maker, for me the little charms of fabric left are often the saddest part of production, so how wonderful to look at ways to make sure all fabrics are used, even if from last season... its STILL new season!

If you don't know Nevenka you should! ( I dont say that too often!) but if you have been to one of their little sales in store, well this is DIFFERENT - it will be SO MUCH MORE

There will be champagne and wine, beautiful flowers and the chance to meet and be personally styled by the nevenka team.

The "celebration" is not instore, but at the gorgeous Anna Pappas gallery in Melbourne from the 20th -22nd May. The exhibitions will be available for viewing throughout the weekend

So please join me, and our team as we Celebrate with Rosemary and her team in Prahran in May!
