“Hi Lucy.  I just wanted to thank you for the fantastic workshops you facilitated.  The feedback has been overwhelming and I think it has really put a stamp on our fashion ability here at Target. Your passion and the way you promoted our product was world class. Thanks again for your fantastic workshops and for giving our customers a wonderful in-store experience.  I truly hope you can do this again soon”
Jess Wilson, Merchandise Manager, Target

 

“Your professionalism, organisation and expertise have ensured that the events you organised at our centres throughout Australia have been a huge success. Not only did they increase sales, but your attention to detail made my job so much easier”
Tindi Sorbero, National Project Manager, DFO

 

“Dear Lucy.  I watched the workshops on Friday and I was really so impressed.  It was engaging, fun and interesting and we were all shopping in our minds along the way as well!  The clothing selections were so spot on!  It looks like everyone was engaged and enjoying themselves which was great to see.  The feedback is fantastic and it’s so great the retailers are seeing results in store straight away.  You were fabulous and organised and easy to work with which was a dream especially with me being so short staffed at the moment.  We would absolutely love to have you back again next season – bigger and better and more workshops, now that I’m sure our retailers loved it and customers loved being involved.”
Kylie Webster, Senior Marketing Manager, Westpoint Blacktown

 

“Hi Lucy.  Thanks again for an amazing job.  It was an absolute pleasure working with you again.  The event went very smoothly and you nailed our key messages.  Thank you for your professionalism and enthusiasm”
Rebecca Jones, Marketing Executive, Westfield Parramatta

 

“Dear Lucy. Thanks so much for your enthusiasm and professionalism while working with us at Australia Fair. Considering your consistent contact with our retailers, they have always provided positive feedback regarding your willingness to work with them whilst at the same time being assertive enough to ensure that the end result is of a high standard ensuring that the brand and essence of Australia Fair is well showcased. I personally have enjoyed working with you after all these years. I have always found that I have had the flexibility to present some crazy ideas and then like magic, we have always been able to work with each other to ensure it ‘happens’! Thanks for your open mind, creativity, professionalism and attention to detail. Thanks Lucy!”
Tanya Brewer, Marketing Manager, Retail First Pty Ltd

 

“Grand Plaza has now used the fantastic services of The Fashion Workshop on several occasions. The team are wonderful, well organised, professional, and stylish of course and I can’t sing their praises enough. The events that we have run with them have been outstanding, not only looking great and providing audiences with great entertainment, but also achieving great sales results for the fashion apparel retailers involved in the workshops we have conducted. I can’t wait to use The Fashion Workshop again.
Danielle Bamford, Marketing Manager, Grand Plaza Shopping Centre

 

”Tweed City Shopping Centre employed the services of The Fashion Workshop for “Style Week”. I was delighted with their professional presentation, organised approach and ability to create shows suited to our target market. The shows not only translate into sales, but also provided an excellent service for both shoppers and retailers. I highly recommend The Fashion Workshop.”
Jessica Hitchin, Marketing Manager, Tweed City Shopping Centre

 

“Lucy and Louise from The Fashion Workshop are in tune with fashion trends, customer wants and retailer needs. They create and present expert and entertaining fashion workshops that are relatable to our customers. Caneland Central has enjoyed customer workshops, speed styling sessions and this season, a VIP night, and Lucy consistently provides a professional service, both to our retailers and our customers. We will continue to learn new fashion trends, tips and tricks for years to come!”
Deanne Woolcock, Marketing Manager Caneland Central

 

“Hi Lucy. Thought I would pass on your very well deserved feedback. As usual it was an absolute pleasure working with you. Your highly organised, professional yet personable workshops were fabulous. I couldn’t have been happier with the workshops and customer feedback.”
Sally Bonner, Marketing Manager, Forest Hill Chase Shopping Centre

 

The Fashion Workshop team are fashion veterans with excellent knowledge and experience in clothes, styling body shapes and fashion. When they approached us I was immediately impressed by how quickly they understood the strong points of our brand. I felt very confident that my brand was well presented and communicated with enthusiasm and professionalism to a new audience. We received positive feedback on the garments and our brand based on their ability to relate it to the needs of their audience. They were a pleasure to do business with.”
Sacha Drake, Designer

 

“The Fashion Workshop was a hit at DFO! We were shown how to transform separate pieces of great garments and accessories into stylish combinations that highlight the “woman” in everyone, at any age. Guaranteed to make you feel good about yourself and make heads turn. Our customers were filled with excitement about fashion again and thrilled with the possibilities of a new look that was theirs to create. Truly superb fashionistas!!!”
Irini Daglis, Centre Manager, DFO Canberra

 

“This is the second year that Centro Gympie has had The Fashion Workshop for our annual Fashion Week campaign. During both of these campaigns we have known The Fashion Workshop to be extremely professional, friendly and enthusiastic with our retailers and customers alike. Delivering styling workshops to a regional demographic is always challenging but in both years The Fashion Workshop have pulled it off brilliantly. Special mention should go to the fact that The Fashion Workshop applies their extensive knowledge of fashion across all age groups, sizes and shapes which allows them have a solid rapport with their customer base (whatever the demographic) from the outset.”
Anthony Mallett, Marketing Manager, Gympie Central

 

The Body Shop was asked to be involved in the Royal Queensland Show by Lucy Hendriks.  This was the first time The Body Shop had been involved in something like this.  It was fantastic exposure for the brand and a great way to let the people attending the 10 day event know of the values that The Body Shop uphold.  Lucy was an exceptional host for myself and my team of staff.  She ensured we were well looked after and was there to guide us with any marketing advise for our brand.  Lucy has a wonderful way with people and she ensures that her approach is very professional but welcoming and warm at the same time.  We had an amazing and successful experience thanks to the opportunity Lucy gave us.”

Retailer feedback

“We have had lots of women come down straight after the workshops and try on all the garments you featured. We have had one mother and daughter come in all 3 days (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) and buy something each day after seeing the workshops. On Saturday alone, they bought 4 things. It’s been great for bringing in customers who wouldn’t normally shop in W-Lane. Well done.”
Manager, W LANE, Macquarie Centre, Sydney

 

“Wow! We’ve have had one of the best days we can remember for a long time! The workshops have definitely been worthwhile. It’s also been great for bringing women in-store and in-centre. Well done!”

“It has been so busy. We have completely sold out of the cobalt jacket you guys showed. Also, we loved what you did with our maxi skirt!”
Manager, VALLEYGIRL, Westfield Parramatta

 

“We have sold 3 of the Gold shrugs and a pair of the white pants. It’s been so great for bringing new customers in too. They have all been coming in with their arms full of shopping bags and using the “product list” like a menu – saying “I need to buy this and then I need to go up to “X” then buy that. Its been really well received.”
Manager, SUSSAN, Caneland Central, Mackay

We wish we could keep you under our cash register so you can help us all the time. We’ve been taking notes throughout each workshop to help us sell throughout the season.”
Manager, Suzanne Grae, Smithfield Shopping Centre, Cairns

 

“We have sold out of the black jumpsuit you showed. People were saying how great it looked and it was their favourite piece in the workshops. Its been great bringing people in store. We were flat out as well after the VIP night workshops.”
Manager, Millers, Tweed City Shopping Centre

 

“Oh My God!! We have been bombarded. It’s been fantastic. We had so many women coming in straight after the workshops wanting to buy the cream vest and we’ve been able to sell them the black one too. Its been awesome.”
Manager, Crossroads, Canelands Central, Mackay

 

“We have totally sold out of the black and white striped jacket you used – and have made a few sales of the burgundy one as well. Women were in store talking about how awesome the workshops were. The centre has really needed something like this. Hope you guys come back again.”
