Our last workshop for 2014!

We recently held our 3rd and final Creative Business + Styling workshop for the year and just as much fun as our first two. It was a weekend packed with food, flowers, wine, and of course learning the business of being creative!

Thank you to all of those who came, especially those from interstate and team New Zealand! We know it is a massive effort and we feel privileged to have you share your precious time with us. We have loved meeting everyone and know we have begun some really beautiful friendships.

Another big thank you to our amazing friends for helping us out and indulging our attendees; you guys are the best. Tommy Collins were as amazing as ever, Circa treated us to a feast, Dann Event Hire and select AV decked out our HQ, Finn Cold Press antipodes water and Fog City sangria kept us hydrated. Myrtle & moss, Ingrained, HOORAY, Frankie Gusti, Shanghai Suzy and Whileaway sent our lucky attendees with a stack of goodies.

We have had so much fun doing these workshops. We feel super lucky to be able to share our story and adventure with so many people just beginning theirs.

We are already looking forward to next year’s workshops and have some exciting plans up our sleeve to make next years workshops even bigger and better!

Make sure you sign up to our workshop mailing list to get in first!

Some of our favourite memories from last season

Hey friends,

As we gear up for a new event season we got reminiscing and thought we’d share with you some of our fave memories from our last season.

On our not-so-secret quest to free the world of chair covers & sashes we’ve had the honour of working with the type of clients some can only dream of, suppliers who embrace our craziness and an outrageously committed and talented crew.

Thank you to all of you who support us and rejuvenate our creative souls daily!

Lookout Spring/Summer….we’re coming for you!

Big love,

Marie + Sarah and The Style Co. team xx

The Business of being creative #2

Last weekend we held our second Creative Business + Styling workshop… the last one was a heap of fun so couldn’t wait to do it all over again!

An eclectic bunch of creatives descended upon our new HQ on a sunny Melbourne Saturday.

On day one these florists, stylists, designers and up & comers nutted out the fundamentals of creative business, how to make magic and how to make money doing it. Marie + Sarah gave everyone a backstage pass into The Style Co. First, The Style Co. story from it’s beginnings to it’s growing pains, high highs to now and future plans. Our new HQ has never looked better with the help from Dann Event Hire.

We covered branding, our mistakes and lessons learned, developing your ideas, concept creation and hot tips and tricks

Our lucky attendees were caffeinated and fuelled by the boys at Tommy Collins, refreshed by the beautiful Finn Pressed Juice, hydrated by elegant antipodes water and liquored up with cheeky Fog City sangria.

Day two took place at Circa on their stunning deck. Marie + Sarah, when through an entire concept and how the team brought it to life. After a bit of floral play, we all sat down to Circa’s mouth-watering menu (and more than a little champagne and wine)

Thanks to our generous friends.. our lucky attendees headed home with a beautiful scented Ecoya candle, custom pencils made just for us by Ingrained, a delightful Myrtle and Moss hand cream, motivating postcard from Press Print Digital, stunning silk Indus scarf, a collection of paper treats form The Paper Empire, stylish notebook form Inky Co., guilt free indulgent Pana Chocolate, a very handy Whileaway Guide, adorable Paper hearts form Alex Mae and a copy of the ever inspiring HOORAY! Mag.

Thank you to all of our friends for letting as show off your amazing products. We love what you do and not afraid to share it!

We feel so lucky to get to share our knowledge and experience with others trying to make it happen in the crazy world of being creative. These workshops are an amazing opportunity for us to connect and create a community that work together.

We cannot wait for our final Melbourne workshop for 2014 in October! Hope to see some of you lovelies there!

To our interstate friends.. dates being released this week (yay!)
