"We are here to help you look and feel your best".
Pictured from left: Melanie Coote, Louise Heller, Bridget Hope, Marga Bastings and Stacey Harris.
We love fashion. It comes naturally for us, but for many it can be a a long road of being 'sold into' the wrong styles and a wardrobe of clothes that you never wear - or feel good in.
At Magpie Style, we curate and fit-test everything on offer to ensure it lasts for years in your wardrobe. We value cost-per-wear over price so that you get the best for your money in the long run.
In the showroom, we offer personalised styling advice for clients during complementary individual appointments, at the Friday fashion boutique and through our online store.
