Oh hello everyone!
We’ve got some exciting news! Our new stock has arrived and is already in Design A Space and up on the website! More exciting than that, we’ve got two new models to add to our collection and to show you our stock! Joining the ranks of Leah (here & here) and Carly (here) we have the wonderful Hoang Anh from Vietnam who is living in Melbourne and studying at RMIT (and is coincidentally friends with Hoa, our logistics manager and Cuong, our graphic designer and used to be one of Jacqui’s students in Hanoi) and Kobi Jae, a rocking babe who is a singer in her band Zombie Scooter Club and a blogger at Horror Kitsch Bitch, and will be our plus size model, because yes, from now on we stock up to size 20 AU, and have also starting stocking size 6!
From the very beginning it has been important to try to showcase our clothing on women that may not usually be considered models – in the normal definition. That is why we didn’t use professional models for our shoots and relied on our kick-arse friends who would volunteer. We like showing ‘normal people’ in our clothing, but, don’t get us wrong, we aren’t saying models aren’t normal people, because they clearly are, but we want to try to convey the message that our clothes look good on anyone, not only size 6 and size 8 women who are professional models. PHO sizzle will continue this method of using anyone who wants to raise their hand to model our clothes and we hope to secure our four current models (Leah, Carly, Hoang Anh and Kobi Jae) to do more work with us in the future, as well as catwalk model our SS14 collection at our launch party. So, by using a variety of sizes including 10, 12, 16, and now 18 & 6, we are trying to make sure you guys know that our clothing can look great on any sized woman, and confidence is the key, unite that sass, baby! And with that, let’s talk about the new products:
Lobster Bolero & Lobster Tea Skirt
Actually both these gorgeous pieces are sold separately but why wouldn’t you wear them together? The story goes that when Jacqui’s eyes latched onto this fabric, she couldn’t NOT buy it. And turning it into a lightweight bolero with one hook and eye at the front makes it a distinct print to wear over a tee or long sleeved top, and pairing it with the midi skirt, or tea length skirt is totally fun and unique. The Lobster Tea Skirt also has pockets to store your cold hands in winter. Made from 100% African Wax Cotton and is certainly the most interesting print we’ve seen going around in a while! We’ve got size 6 to 20 in this, but less in the larger sizes so try to jump in quick if you’re interested.
Lobster Bolero: $60
Lobster Tea Skirt: $69
Berry Pencil Skirt
We can feel this one is gonna sell fast! This berry colored, gorgeous pencil skirt is made from 100% African Wax Cotton and has a small amount got each size. It’s scalloped hem adds something different, although you know us, we love a good scallop. The blue pocket is real and small enough to store VERY IMPORTANT things, like, lip gloss, bobby pins, diamonds, etc. The Berry Pencil Skirt is available in size 6 to size 20.
Berry Pencil Skirt: $65
So, they are our new, delicious and distinct products, with free shipping to anywhere in Australia and a flat overseas rate of $15. This new stock is also in Design A Space in Fitzroy, but only up to size 16. If you want size 18 or 20, we are currently only offering them online as we haven’t found a plus size stockist yet.
In other news we are still madly running around trying to get our collection ready for Melbourne Spring Fashion Week and also have our stock ready for our subsequent Collection Launch Party for September/October. We’ve also decided to lock in some more markets for the rest of the year, so we’ll let you know dates about them soon.
So, until then, goodbye!
Love, The PHO sizzle team.
