Fashion boutique a drawcard for picturesque country town
KAYSUELLE Fashions is setting high standards in fashion for the local market.
While John St, Rosewood, may not have typically been thought of as a leading address for fashion, think again.
Kaysuelle Fashions is establishing itself as a must-visit location when thinking ladies' fashion and accessories. Michelle Robertson and Sue Clark are joint owners and are determined to provide fashion for all occasions and look after each customer's needs.
With only eight years under their belt, these two long-time friends have established a destination boutique that is drawing clients from all over south-east Queensland.
"We have the majority of our customers from Ipswich and from here in Rosewood, Gatton and Laidley and we get people coming from Toowoomba, Brisbane and the Gold Coast," Sue Clark said.
While some train it in, most seem to either travel solo or car pool and make a day of it by shopping and having some lunch locally. It is an impressive reputation they have gained, and a real plus for the region.
According to Ms Robertson and Ms Clark the attraction is the quality products at an affordable price.
"We have a saying which is our prices will bring you in and our service will bring you back," Ms Robertson said.
Both ladies are passionate about making sure that each client is well looked after and they ensure that everyone leaves content.
"The best thing that can happen is that we say goodbye to a client who is delighted with what they have bought and they go with a smile on their face, it makes it all worthwhile," Ms Clark said.
A boutique store like Kaysuelle Fashions gives a level of exclusivity that you will not see every other person wearing the same outfit, in fact the ladies spend a great deal of time selecting the range that is available to you in store.
"It does take time to find what will work, but we know our customers and what will sell and be popular," Ms Clark said.
According to the owners they do not always agree but they have a rule in place that if one believes they can sell what they think will work, then they buy that product.
"We do have our different views but that is how we work it out," Ms Robertson said.
Kaysuelle Fashions carries a full range of sizes and cater for casual wear, formal with a special focus on mother-of-the-bride outfits.
"We cover from late teens to the mature lady in our styles. We do have a small selection of children's wear and only very few shoes but we have a good range of handbags, evening bags, hats, fascinators and jewellery," Ms Clark said.
The ladies are very supportive of the other local businesses and refer customers to a shoe store nearby rather than attempting to compete.
"We all work together to support each other. For our business if we do not have what you want in stock, we will get it for you," she said.
Rosewood is easy to access from the Warrego Hwy and from the surrounding areas and has a great deal to offer.
The current fashion is still following the trend from summer with more colour than has been in vogue. According to Ms Clark the timeless black and grey outfits are still popular. While we enjoy the current fashion, Ms Robertson and Ms Clark are already working on the next season's outfits.
"We go to fashion houses, they are wholesale agents for the labels, and there we are shown the range that is available. We try not to carry too many labels. We go from room to room, one room for each label, and have to make decisions as we go," Ms Clark said.
