Message from the Shine Director

My life has been all about dance. I first started Calisthenics at the age of 3. Out of frustration of not being able to find anything to make my costumes, my mother started a business buying Trimmings & Remnants from local auctions and opened a retail store in Pascoe Vale in 1979. I was encouraged to change over to dancing at the age of 11. My first professional job as a dancer was at the age of 15. During the next 15 years, I worked professionally in various shows & casinos throughout Australia and overseas. I continued to work as a dancer until 30, then made the decision to start the next chapter in my life, a family. Trying to juggle 2 toddlers and work for her as Operations Manager, my mother decided it was time to retire and sold her business in 2004.

I spent the next few years focusing on my 3 young children, designing and manufacturing Children’s Swimwear but missed seeing all my customers in store. With 2 of my 3 children dancing, it was perfect timing to change the direction of my career. After spending a few years looking for the right location, I finally found the perfect building in 2012 at 421 Graham Street, Port Melbourne. After making a few renovations to accommodate all our wonderful products, finally Shine Trimmings & Fabrics was born in December 2012. Three years later we opened a wholesale warehouse in Altona to accomodate our growing product range.

The team at Shine have various backgrounds that span costume making, fashion design, dance, marketing & customer service and are extremely dedicated and passionate for our creative industry. Now as we are about to celebrate 10 years, we have the largest range of over 10,000 products, 2 locations offering both Wholesale & Retail, and send our products globally. We love seeing what our customer create using products from Shine. Thank you for believing in us and continuing to support our small business. We look forward to seeing you and help make your creation shine.
