Glenda would sketch outfits & the pair would scour Melbourne warehouses for fabrics to use in her designs. It was the perfect apprenticeship for a third career in fashion retailing for the former English teacher and lecturer. A marriage break up had meant the end of her second career in family tourist accommodation, but a healing move to the Coffs Coast provided her with a new business opportunity. Opening Sensara Coffs Central, her second shop, has given her the opportunity to bring new brands to Coffs Harbour which offer leading edge design and beautiful fabrics.
The shop stocks Australian designed and made labels including Mela Purdie & Sandra Soulos as well as European labels like Kokomarina and Mouse Ji.
Other labels include Sancerre, Metalicus and Try Luxe jeans, which are new to Australia. Winter will see more new European brands plus beautiful knitwear. She is also stocking a small range of modal fashion basics, like leggings, tanks, camis and ¾ sleeve tops, ideal for layering.
“I like garments that are flattering but with a point of difference”
Glenda also likes to keep a look out for unique homewares such as the Tripod lamp & an eclectic collection of gifts. Handsome change rooms in a spacious dedicated area, large mirrors placed so women can see themselves from two angles and bright but soft lighting indicate the importance Glenda places on helping customers identify exactly what suits them.
