Gorgi Collections was launched with excitement in late 2017 as a fashion boutique store. Sali’s vision behind this creation is to source a variety of Bags, Jewellery and Accessories that are a mix of sassy, funky and unique statement makers to compliment your daily look.
Their items are vegan friendly, colourful, young and vibrant, classical, antique, semi-precious and ethically hand made, sourced from local Australian businesses and well known national and international brands. They are a retailer exclusively hosted online with a dedicated team ready to drive best value to customers that are young at heart, fashion seekers and trend setters. Their focus is to ensure all customers feel and look amazing and receive nothing but the best in high quality items.
1. What’s the been the best moment about starting your own business?
I started Gorgi Collections for the pure love of fashion. I have never studied it, instead I actually have a degree in HR and Early Childhood, and still working in corporate and have been for over 20 years. The corporate world allows me the opportunity to personalise my own style and show case who I am through what I wear.
2. What does this nomination mean for you?
The nomination to me means that I am being recognised for something I believe in. Its allowing me to inspire other women that they can style themselves in how they see fit, without having to be trend setters. That it is also possible to have fun in your journey.
3. What advice do you have for anyone wanting to start their own business, specific to fashion?
Follow your dreams. Live for now rather than "maybe later on" as later may never come. Believe in yourself. Fashion in essence, is the art of transforming a simple attire into one that of elegance, but style is very personal. It is a lot more permanent and isnt subject to changing on a whim.
4. How are you feeling about tonight for the Ausmumpreneur Awards?
Very excited and nervous about tonight. No matter what, I'm a winner being a finalist as I have had the opportunity to come to my favourite city after being away for 9 years and then meeting some remarkable and inspiring women - its been an amazing adventure.
Sali is a finalist for the 2019 Fashion Business Award at the Ausmpreneur Awards.
