In a society where celebrity influence filters down to the masses, the opening of Australia’s first styling suite with a shop front in a shopping centre, demonstrates the growth and demand for the personal styling industry. Just like its forefathers in the once exclusive industries of makeup artistry and personal training, demand has created and driven this much desired, and needed destination venue, to a client base who are willing to travel citywide and interstate, and overseas.
Located in Chadstone The Fashion Capital, the largest and prestigious shopping centre in the Southern Hemisphere, ‘Style with Cindy’ provides a centre point for a range of services to women and men including personal styling, personal shopping, corporate and lifestyle clothing makeovers, makeup tuition and colour analysis.
The suite also serves as the main ‘Professional Styling Academy’ campus for Melbourne students taking courses in Fashion Styling, and the administrative centre for Sydney and Gold Coast students.
Ms. Newstead said, “Opening the suite is a long-held dream for me. For the past sixteen years, I have worked with over 6,700 clients across Australia teaching them about what styles and colours work best for them. Many of my clients have asked if I had a shopfront where they could visit and now, I’m thrilled to be able to say, yes!”
Widely regarded as Australia’s doyenne in personal styling, Ms. Newstead has provided her expertise across Australia, Europe and Asia, the latter of which has become an annual trip for clients wanting a personalised experience with visits to tailors and dressmakers in Vietnam.
“Each year, I travel with a small group of clients who want to invest in having a bespoke wardrobe made from quality fabrics and materials, in styles that are ideal for them to look their best. Being able to have access to a personal stylist and shopper over ten days is something that has a lasting impact and teaches participants much-needed style know-how they can use time and time again.”
‘Style With Cindy’ is located in the Chadstone Shopping Centre, 1341 Dandenong Road, Chadstone, Melbourne and is open Monday to Friday from 9.00am to 5.30pm. For further information, visit www.stylewithcindy.com.au or call 0407 851 584.
