Marks’ creative sparks
MORGAN Marks opened her new Nedlands store in March and has not looked back.
The store was previously Nicola Waite and before that Lindy Rosenwax.
“I have always loved this store,” Marks said.
“I went there for many years in its previous incarnations, and when it became available I had to jump on it quickly; it’s a beautiful space.
“I have my Claremont clients coming in; we have a lot of really lovely, interesting women who live in the area, from Shenton Park, Subiaco and all over.”
Marks started working in the industry 35 years ago and registered her first business in August 1985, making this month a very special 30th anniversary.
These days Marks is stamping her style by moving away from mainstream but still retaining her signature basics.
She is using more exclusive fabrics, designing her own prints and sourcing directional labels to put into store as well.
The avid traveller sources her silk from China, linens from India and textiles from Japan.
Imported designer jewellery and accessories are also a feature in the latest Nedlands store.
With Perth Fashion Festival next month, Marks is working on an exhibition of wearable art, overseeing new little sister label Olli & Co and taking the Morgan Marks range to Europe next year. She has retained her other two signature stores in Claremont Quarter and Mt Lawley.
