Fashion Event - Cecylia Boutique's First Birthday

In April last year, a lovely lady called Cecylia realised her dream by opening a fashion boutique. With the help of her stylish business partner Linda, supportive husband Chian and cute chihuahua Theodore, she opened Cecylia boutique on High Street in Armadale.

One year later, in a time when the retail market has been struggling the boutique has defied the odds, building a loyal client base and reputation as a premier fashion destination. Although other retailers have closed around them, Cecylia's dedication to customer service has seen them succeed in a tough industry. Cecylia and Linda always go above and beyond to meet the needs of not only their customers, but any visitor to their store.

I was lucky enough to attend the boutique's first birthday bash to celebrate with Cecylia boutique's friends and clients. There was plenty of cupcakes, champagne and fairy bread, and the fashionable crowd were treated to live music. There was an array of stunning hats as required by the invite, which made for some fantastic pictures.

Stocking beautiful labels such as Karla Spetic, This is Bento, Damselfly, Felder and Felder, Roksanda Ilincic and Sophia Kokosolaki just to name a few, Cecylia boutique has a diverse range of pieces from designers who produce their collections in their home countries.

With the continuing support of JC Lloyd-Southwell d'Anvers and Dean Hewitt from the wonderful Madam Virtue (Cecylia's mentors), along with support from their growing customer base, I have no doubt Cecylia boutique is destined for great things.

I encourage you to visit the boutique to not only look at the beautiful pieces, but say hi to Cecylia, Linda and Theodore who are always there to greet you with a smile and sometimes a cupcake!

In tough economic times, it's important to show our support for independent retailers who are keeping fashion exciting and unique in Australia.
