Step back to the 1950s with pin-up dresses, vintage-inspired fashion and rockabilly clothing at the Laurina Jean Retro pop-up stall at Stockland Bundaberg.
Laurina Jean has travelled around Australia with her pop-up stall and said she was excited to come to the Bundaberg Region to share her fashion for the first time.
“Instead of having a bricks and mortar store in a single location, we take our brand all around Australia to reach as many people as possible in person,” Laurina said.
“Bundaberg has always been somewhere I wanted to stop and really take in.
“I feel like Bundaberg needs to be tasted, seen and enjoyed as an experience not to be forgotten.”
Laurina said she started her Laurina Jean Retro business in 2014 after she thought her love for the retro style was too much to keep to herself, and she felt like she could make a difference in creating a brand that embraced curves and catered for every woman.
“I love to see how much joy the perfect dress brings to someone,” she said.
“I love seeing how people react when they go into a changeroom in everyday clothes and come out rocking the 50’s vibe.
“Faces light up and sometimes people just can’t stop spinning around or swishing their skirts.
“It’s just the best feeling to see someone look in the mirror and sparkle with you and see how beautiful they are.”
Bundaberg Region ideal for Laurina Jean Retro
Laurina believes the Bundaberg Region has the ideal climate for her classic outfits.
“Honestly, we feel that there is a big market for our fashion and styles wherever we take them, but absolutely Bundaberg has a market just waiting to be taken by storm with retro fashion,” she said.
“The coastal area and warm climate is just perfect for it and the kind of energy Bundaberg has will spark with a bit of retro style thrown in.”
Laurina said the best part about Laurina Jean Retro travelling pop-up shop was the people she met on her journey.
“Of course, every place has its own energy and I love to immerse myself in that,” she said.
“Bundaberg is so vibrant and beautiful, and I think the retro style just fits right into that. And of course, my dresses are perfect for the climate.
“Queensland has some incredible places – I’m working through an ever-expanding list to see the best our state has to offer and taking my business as far afield as I can.
“I can’t wait for Bundaberg to be a big part of that list!”
Laurina said to her the 1950’s style dresses were the only style in the world that suited every individual body, and she said every person deserves that wow factor moment.
“We have a variety of styles, carefully designed to fit and flatter all kinds of body types,” she said.
“We feel very strongly that every person, every body deserves to feel amazing, beautiful and joyous in who they are.
“We have a variety of styles, carefully designed to fit and flatter all kinds of body types. Our size range runs from Size 8 through to Size 28.
“Our size range reflects that belief, and it is our mission to be part of making that possible.”
The Laurina Jean Retro pop-up stall will be at Stockland Bundaberg until Saturday, 14 March.
