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 buying Sequins, Trimmings & Fabrics from local Auctions and opened a retail store in 1979. I then moved over to the world of Dancing at the age of 11, learning all aspects of dance. 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 as Operations Manager looking after over 20 staff, 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. 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.
The team at Shine have backgrounds that span costume making, fashion design, dance and cosplay and are extremely talented, dedicated and passionate for this industry. Most days, you will find my mother, Bev Bishop here at Shine catching up with all our wonderful & loyal customers. We all look forward to seeing you and making your creation SHINE…
