MEET THE TEAM: GRACE

MEET THE TEAM: GRACE

 

Meet Grace. She's our new full-timer at our Wellington store and we wanted to introduce you. 

Grace loves reading novels in her spare time and with a first class honours degree in fashion design, we are so privileged to have her as apart of the team. 

We asked her a few questions so you can get to know her better, check out her answers below...  

 

What do you do at Wilson Trollope?
I work in the store during the week where I get to meet all of our wonderful customers, both old and new. I also package online orders for those customers who can’t make it into the store.

What’s one Wilson Trollope piece that always makes you feel amazing?
I always feel most confident in a fitted silhouette, but at the moment I'm loving my London dress in Wildflower. Whenever I wear it it feels like spring, even if the weather outside doesn't quite agree.
 
Who is your fashion icon?
I feel like it is always changing based on things like my mood and the weather, but my mother is a constant influence. Growing up her clothes took up three different wardrobes in our house so there was always something different to be playing with.

What’s something that always makes you feel inspired and empowered?
good book! They can take you to incredible places or help you understand more about the world you are in.
 
What’s a recent favourite book you read/ podcast you listened to/ movie or tv show you watched and why?
Two of my favourite books right now are The Psychology of Time Travel by Kate Mascarenhas, an intriguing murder mystery involving four female scientists who invent time travel in 1967, and The Prince and the Dressmaker by Jen Wang, an adorable graphic novel about self discovery and expression through fashion.
 
Best advice you’ve ever received?
Trust your instincts.
 
Lastly, what’s your favourite thing about working at Wilson Trollope?
Getting to work for a locally-owned brand that is focused on empowering women and producing beautiful garments (also having an excuse to wear beautiful dresses everyday is never a bad thing!).
 
Welcome to the team, Grace!

As we remember those who fought bravely for the allies in WWI, we must also remember the New Zealand and Australian women as part of the ANZAC narrative. Read below for a few of the women whose roles in in WWI were often left unrecognised and whom we are inspired by.

Frances Hodgkins: The Inspiration Behind Seven & Five

April 22, 2021

I’m so inspired by Frances Hodgkins. I love the way that she took on the world, knew her own mind and was open to all possibilities. She was a trailblazer that explored, experimented and forged her own path. When I think of her, I always come back to these thoughts and feel inspired by this empowered woman.

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR BODY

There are three body measurement points that you need to know to ensure a great fit – bust, waist, and hips.

When taking your body measurements, wear the undergarments you normally wear for the most accurate results. Use a flexible tape measure, or a piece of string and ruler, and hold it around each body point so it is comfortably snug.  If the tape is cutting into your flesh, it is too tight.

To ensure an accurate measurement around your body, keep the measuring tape as level as possible from front to back. We recommend measuring yourself in front of a mirror so you can check this from a side view. If you can, get a friend to help you to ensure the most accurate measurements.


Bust: Wrap the measuring tape around your back and where the tape meets across the fullest point of your bust is your bust measurement.  

Waist: Wrap the measuring tape around your natural waist, the slimmest part of your torso, pulling the ends to the front. Where they meet is your waist measurement.

Hips: Wrap the measuring tape around the widest part of your bottom – this is usually low down towards your thighs. As with your bust and waist measurements, where the tape meets is your hip measurement.

Length: To measure the length of individual garments against your body it is best to measure down the centre of your back. To do this, start the measuring tape at either the base of your neck for dresses and tops, or at your waist for skirts. Measure down your body to the measurement listed in the garment description. This will show you where the garment comes to on you. When you are measuring for length, remember to make sure you are standing completely upright – it is best to have someone help you with this. Alternatively, compare the measurement with the length of a garment you already have.
