Stylish advice: Vo Vo Modelle
JULIE Ambrosi is bucking the latest business trend in the Bundaberg CBD.
By marketing her new business to a niche audience of fashionistas, the Vo Vo Modelle owner is confident her stylish yet casual approach will survive the hardships Bundaberg businesses have experienced.
“I feel there is a market for wearable, everyday, casual wear,” Mrs Ambrosi said.
“I try to buy Australian or from New Zealand because the sizing's better - it's true sizing.
“(Getting the right size in clothing) has always been a big thing for me.”
Having worked for herself for the past 15 years, with business experience to boot, Mrs Ambrosi said she appreciated getting feedback from customers because it helped with business decisions.
“You want to have things people want,” she said.
The beautifully-furnished Vo Vo Modelle store, in Targo Street, opened on Saturday, and offers a classy selection of natural fibres and light, wearable fabrics.
“They're good-quality fabrics,” Mrs Ambrosi said.
Brands featured include Maiocchi and Carmel's Designs.
Vo Vo Modelle has just entered the group of Bundaberg fashion retailers who have survived the hard economic times to give local women what they want.
To see what Vo Vo Modelle has in the new store, go along between 9am and 2pm on Mondays, 9am to 5pm Tuesday to Friday, and 9am to noon on Saturday.
