Portofino Colours Your Curves….
Portofino has been in the fashion business for 36 years. Starting as a bricks and mortar enterprise, expanding into several shop fronts and then re-inventing the sales experience as an extraordinary fashion parade and pop up shop experience. And now finally as an on-line selling experience also.
Taking the product to the customer by means of fashion presentations and parades has been integral to our business and expanding into on line trading adds an exciting dimension to our company. Portofino is now manufacturing an exclusive range in BRISBANE!! This gives us the ultimate control needed to bring to our clients the fashions that mature women want to wear.
Our mission is to supply exceptional, beautiful clothing at fabulous prices. We understand our market and are always aiming to exceed the expectations of our customers. If you are new to our label, welcome! But to those of you that already know our clothing and enjoy our fashions, we hope you love this new avenue as much as we have enjoyed bringing it to you.
Hi, I’m Roz
I have been the Director of Portofino for 36 years and it is most definitely my passion. Having the opportunity to present our fashions to a wide variety of women every year is incredible and to be able to help so many groups with their important fund raising events is a joy. It is always deightful to see women enjoying themselves as the fashion parade is presented and as they partake in this fabulous way of shopping.
Hi, I’m Michele
I have worked with Roz at Portofino for close to 25 years now. I think that I have the best job! I get to encourage women to enjoy fashion and encourange them to step out of their comfort-zones. As the fashion parade dresser I dress more than 800 models a year and I have extensive knowledge of both our ranges and what styles are most flattering on different body shapes.
In-House Fashion Events
We are invited to present our fashions at many different venues from halls and churches to sporting and RSL clubs in the south east corner extending to northern NSW. Many of these are about fund-raising events and Portofino is called upon as the highlight. We specialise in creating a unique shopping experience by presenting a fabulous fashion parade and displaying a full range of clothing and accessories, a choice far exceeding most boutiques. Presenting our fashions is a free service and our goal is to create an enjoyable and exciting day for the ladies who are attending the event. A percentage of our sales are donated back to the fund-raising cause to express our gratitude in being invited. Portofino offers a service of printing invitations and tickets to these events if needed, also free of charge.
How Our Day Works
We arrive at the venue approximately 2 hours prior to the starting time to set up our “shop. One hour before the starting time of the day we ask the models to present themselves to have their garments chosen for the parade. The models are volunteers from the group we are presenting to. The fashion parade will usually take one hour, with full commentary from Roz regarding prices and sizing. The ladies will have time both before and after the parade to shop. The group that has invited us will choose if they are serving a morning tea or lunch and this occurs after the fashion parade and shopping time.
