The go to site for home-grown fashion, inspiration and invaluable advice on personal style
Behind the name Style Palace are two exceedingly passionate people and husband-wife duo, who obtain a love for not only fashion, but Australian fashion in particular. Barbie Payton, buyer, seller and stylist; has a goal of contributing her support and knowledge of the under-recognised talent that Australia has to offer.
The site includes are vast array of everything fashion, and everything Aussie. From online shopping to inspiration pages, styling services and a blog; it all captures and celebrates the renowned style, fashion, beauty and lifestyle of this unique country.
When visiting or shopping on stylepalace.com.au every customer or client is taken care of to the highest degree, enabling the experience to be personal, special and memorable, which is what Style Palace aims for.
To keep updated for their clients, SP continually studies the latest trends, travel around Australia and of course, preview the runways of each showcased collection. In fact, the girls recently were down in Sydney for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, spring/summer 2015/16 (for details visit stylepalace.wordpress.com). The team witnessed the talented designer’s pieces first hand and shared it across to their followers, instantly showing their ongoing support.
It is important that Australia has a fashion industry of it’s own and SP constantly pushes this fact, as many well-known designers now base themselves overseas.
Names like Cameo, Winona Australia, Stevie May and Arnhem Clothing, just to name a few, are all in need of our renowned Aussie support.
Other than sharing a passion for local talent and offering extraordinary styling services, Barbie Payton and co-worker Jacqui Wheatley (hair and makeup artist) are currently working on a new project. The team are launching styling workshops for girls in high school, focusing on self confidence, age appropriate dressing, and embracing personal style. The goal of the workshop is also to have fun with fashion without the peer pressure that is constant within the last few years of school. Negative thinking and the pressure of looking like the ‘ideal girl’ needs to be removed and the launch of these workshops will directly target this problem.
Payton and Wheatley have taken the opportunity to urgently deal with this untouched issue using their professional skills and assets, and with the support from high schools; it can be in the past.
