Make a splash! Fashionworks


When it comes to making a splash this sartorial season, it’s all about the latest and greatest in swimwear.

With an expansive range of swimwear, Lifestyles in the alpine haven of Hanmer Springs is the ideal place to bring life to your summer wardrobe. Many make a weekend of it, as they can pop across to the pools and show them off!  Owner Alice Stielow is armed with options to suit everyone. “Many of us pull out last season’s swimwear that’s been stored away and realise just how thin and see-through the material has become.

“This is the ideal time to find something new, with styles and colours to complement you.” She’s seeing a lot of retro styles coming through this season, along with on-form florals and beautiful block colours. Buttercup yellow is a hot tip. Meanwhile the super-high-cut swimsuit – the Baywatch-esque silhouette which soars above the hip is hot property for the younger generation, with brands such as Piha and Billabong offering great options.

Alice owns two stores, Lifestyles and Fashionworks, and after three decades here, she understands how important fit is to the finished look. “Colour and style are one thing, but getting the right fit for your body is what really matters.”  Meanwhile her second boutique store, Fashionworks, is a designer-label paradise for womenswear, footwear and jewellery. Clothing ranges from Wish and Ivy Blu, to CooperStreet and Augustine are complemented by a beautiful range of shoes including D&J and Hey Monday.

An inspirational boutique: Fashionworks


Take a trip to Hanmer over the next month – the perfect Cup Day outfit could be waiting. Inspiration flows in this stress-less alpine atmosphere, especially at designer boutique Fashionworks.

Owner Alice Stielow says spring’s burst of flowers and sunshine inspires dressing up in fashionable florals and colour. “However, Cup Day encourages individual personality, be it smart casual, to a classical little black dress.
“Styles and colours are so exciting now.”

Django and Juliette, and Hey Monday are Fashionworks favourites. “This season’s blazers and jackets look so smart with anything – a Cup Day outfit or a pair of jeans.”
Cooper St and IvyBlu have beautiful occasion-wear, as does Molly Bracken, Wish, NoaNoa, Cooper St, Seduce, Zafina, Augustine, Charlo and Stella Royal. Alice’s second store, Lifestyles, has amazing swimwear and urban wear such as White Chalk and Home Lee.
