JANINE EDWARDS How did Janine Edwards begin? Where did you learn your skills? I started my retail business in Chapel Street, Melbourne. My tiny store had a small factory at the back where three machinists produced what we sold weekly. When Marina Mirage opened, it was the first centre with beautiful stores, and I really wanted to be part of it. What’s your career highlight? Wholesaling and retailing allow you to experience the best of all fashion aspects. Opening new brands in our stores and having our customers love them is the best reward. Who is your inspiration / style icon? Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine is an amazing icon with impeccable style and vision. What’s your top style tip for summer? Finding a store where you feel comfortable with the stylists, knowing they will offer you their experience honestly allows you to find your own style. Fashion is what you make of what is available. I don’t follow trends just what I love. What do you love most about Marina Mirage? Marina Mirage is an amazing destination and shopping complex. Located between Versace and Sheraton Mirage it has a beautifully serene ambiance where you can wander through to great restaurants and gorgeous retail stores. 07 5591 5911 Shop 136, Level 1, Marina Mirage

BON GENRE & DOMANI SHOES So - tell us about your business! My mum and dad started Domani Shoes over 40 years ago. They originally designed and manufactured the Domani branded shoes here on the Gold Coast with more than nine shops across Queensland. It’s my honour to keep it going and do them proud although things have changed a bit now; these days I’m importing the very latest and exclusive prestigious European footwear brands. My absolute highlight so far has to be with the expansion and take over of Bon Genre homewares business in February this year. Being able to have another store with a new product range and new group of customers to service has been immensely gratifying to be involved in. I wear two hats when doing the buying - footwear and now homewares and gifts! It’s a dream job & has been a lot of fun, learning new things and expanding into new opportunities.

What can we expect from you in the next few months? I am eagerly looking forward to the upcoming holiday season to see what exciting new experiences will happen next, as it will be our first Christmas at Bon Genre. With Domani Shoes, we always like to think that we are able to provide options for everyone from the young professional corporate worker, to our retirees that should enjoy the high life after working so hard for so long. Coming into the warmer seasons, we are looking forward to new party shoes and resortstyle sandals. Domani is always a pleasure to continue to grow and bring new additions to the range.

Who is your inspiration / style icon? I probably don’t have a definitive “style icon”, but I gather my inspiration from two main sources. My first area of inspiration is when I travel Europe. I always come home with a whole world full of ideas, ready to explode! I live and breathe for European fashion, food, textiles and the people. I always enjoy experiencing new cultures and enjoy the high quality fashions while I’m over there. I also gather inspiration from other entrepreneurs. Young, old, male, female, startups, long standing businesses…I love hearing their stories and theories. With the world constantly changing around us at the moment, it’s hard not to be motivated with the highly creative and dynamic professionals we have. I always feel like there is something new to learn from someone. What’s your favourite item that you have created? I’m totally in love with my new summer range in store now at Domani, I think it’s the best summer range we have ever done. I know that it sounds cliché, though every year really just does keep getting better and better. We always try to provide the best quality and I feel that we have done so as the styles are straight off the catwalk, yet comfortable to be worn every day. Top style tips for summer? Be yourself, be bold, be strong, be confident and wear what makes you feel great, not what other people want you to wear. What do you love most about Marina Mirage? It’s that feeling I get instantly on arrival to the Centre. I’m relaxed, refreshed, and feel like I’m on holidays every single day. The people are vibrant and happy, and the quality shops offer something you cannot find elsewhere. Marina Mirage is my everyday go to, I work there, I go to the gym there, I dine there, I get all my beauty treatments there, hair, nails, shop - the lot! Can you tell I love the place?

It is said that anticipation alone is enough to create a sense of exhilaration. As your ďŹ nger hovers over the start button of a McLaren Sports Series model, the anticipation is palpable. From the ďŹ rst growl of its twin turbo charged 3.8 litre V8, the experience surpasses expectations. Even if you take for granted the 0-124mph time of a scarcely believable 9.5 seconds for the 570S, nothing prepares you for the thrill of its race-bred dynamics. With a chassis honed to create an unrivalled balance, the Sports Series is as at home in the city as it is on the limits of the race track.

ANTHEA POLSON My interest in Art began when my daughter was at St Hilda’s School Southport and I got involved in the running of their Annual Art Show, which was a major school event. That was 26 years ago! It was through that I met Wyn Schubert and I began working for her in 1995. I was with her at Art Gallery Schubert – Marina Mirage until she retired in 2009. I learned so much from the enormous eclectic art collection at the gallery, which was considered one of the best commercial galleries in Australia. It proved to be a great learning curve for me. When Wyn Schubert retired I opened Anthea Polson Art in May 2009 at Mariner’s Cove, and that was perhaps a career highlight for me. It was challenging and hard work but the support of our client base, amazing staff and family in particular helped to make it a success. We have sold and resold many of Australia’s iconic artworks and helping our young collectors with their collections has been very rewarding for me. COMING HOME Moving back to the Marina Mirage in April has been like coming home for us. We have enjoyed developing the space we have into somewhere that people look forward to visiting and it has been pleasing to see so many of our old clients find us and enjoy this new space. We have a huge schedule before us with two major exhibitions before Christmas then our huge Christmas Show and party, which always falls on the Saturday before Christmas. We already have an almost full calendar for 2017 including plans for a pop-up show in Sydney and taking Anthea Polson Art to a major city as we did in Melbourne earlier this year. I love the open space the Marina Mirage creates and the lovely natural light of the complex lends itself to showing our artworks to their best advantage. We look forward to working with all our new friends here and increasing our already large online presence over the coming year. 07 5561 1166 Shop 120, Level 1, Marina Mirage

SONIA STRADIOTTO Who is an inspiration or style icon for Sonia Stradiotto Couture? I am inspired by the world and big cities with cultural architecture, and when I see beautiful intricate textured fabrics and or vibrant colours, they encourage me to create. My style icon is Coco Chanel. I share my birthday with her, August 19th! What is your favourite item in store at the moment? Like children, favour none, but love each for their own unique qualities! So I’d say the classic Black Tuxedo (saves me every time) and our little black lace Romanza dress with 80 rock chick sleeve; it covers all four seasons. What’s your style tip for Summer 16/17? Don’t wear what fashion dictates, wear what suits you. Fitted slip dresses show the silhouette and floaty silk ponchos are sexy and cool for the hot season ahead. Lace or caftan pieces tend to give you a vibrant summery glow even if you haven’t been in the sun. Don’t wear stockings in summer, wear spray tan and well-groomed toes with open sandals and or wedges. Enjoy colour for summer and match your lips with the fabrics you choose. There is nothing more powerful and eye catching than a lady in red lace race dress with elegant red shoes, handbag, and red lips. When you choose handbag and shoes with a colour, ensure they are the same. The dominant colour must be shoe colour which then becomes the handbag colour, i.e. navy dress, nude shoes and nude clutch worn with navy and nude fascinator. What do you love most about Marina Mirage? Apart from it being Australia’s most beautiful shopping and dining precinct, it is really close to my heart. I modelled for Marina Mirage in the 80s and it has always been an iconic landmark that dictates quality and unique brands. I have had great success here as Bliss Fashion Emporium, and now returning with our evolved Sonia Stradiotto Couture brand. My new salon boutique on level one offers an eclectic mix of genres, spanning from racewear to glam kaftans, formal wear and mother of bride. I believe such a specialized business that stays in your heart and mind belongs in a centre like this that’s a visually stimulating destination. 27 years of business is celebrated with the Annual Runway show and official opening of SSC at Marina Mirage, early 2017.

JOHN FORSYTH When I left school I started working selling Anthony Squires suits to various Queensland menswear stores. My inspiration for style and quality came from working for the owner, who insisted only the best will do. All his representatives had to be the best dressed men in town, wearing the latest suits and never without a hat. He soon went to Italy where he started Zegna suits, becoming one of Europe’s best; I started John Forsyth for Men at Marina Mirage, in a small shop on the first level – 25 years ago. INTERNATIONAL AFFAIR One of my career highlights was being approached by the Australian Wool Board to put together a range of menswear made of fine light weight Australian wool. I went to the best of the manufacturers of suits and trousers, asking them to submit two outfits which would be paraded around the showground pavilions in Australia. After the success of these fashion parades the Department of Trade decided to take these wool fashions overseas. My contract with the Wool Board was extended from two years to four conducting trade showings and fashion parades in many countries, starting at Expo 70 in Osaka Japan, with parades every day for two weeks. Trade exhibitions and fashion parades then followed in Tokyo, Hong Kong, China, Singapore, L.A, San Francisco finishing in New York with the Wool Board and the Department of Trade, where I was offered a position with the Australian Embassy in New York for one year. My love for international fashion and travel has only grown over my career, and I travel to Italy every year to buy. I always look forward to the menswear trade fair held every June in Florence, visited by all the top menswear buyers. I’m excited about the future too - the ranges just get better each time I go. FASHION FORWARD Fashion now is to make you look slim no matter what size you are. Slacks made from stretch cotton, legs are made slimmer, waist bands that stretch from inside the waistband, pockets have a zipper inside making it a double pocket, protecting your passport or cash. Shirts made from cotton, pleats, slim cut, stretch to add comfort. Shorts are slightly longer with stretchy cloth, in many colours for summer. Casual shoes to match every shirt colour. My favourite brand is Hugo Boss, I have been selling Hugo Boss for 25 years at Marina Mirage, now they are number one in the world and Giorgio Armani are number two. Everybody from overseas knows all our brands, we stock only European labels. NO PLACE LIKE HOME The Gold Coast is really growing up with the new buildings planned, and the Commonwealth Games will help to attract more tourists. I feel the Spit in Main Beach will become a special place too, and its great that Marina Mirage will be at the centre of a lot of the action. What do I like most about Marina Mirage? Excellent shops, restaurants with great views, covered parking. Walking around Marina Mirage gives you a good feeling; it’s a beautiful place to visit. Shop 111, Level 1, Marina Mirage. 07 5532 0411

ALL ABOUT FACE: PRODUCT REVIEW Dr Ronald Moy is a renowned scientist, researcher, dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon who has dedicated his life’s work to understanding to impact of photodamage on skin health and aging. His decades of expertise and landmark clinical research have led to one simple yet highly effective philosophy for transforming aging skin. DNA Renewal combines two scientific breakthroughs – DNA Repair Enzymes and plant-based Growth Factor – into one streamlined approach for rapidly correcting and protecting skin types. At Esteem Medi Spa we are proud to be a selected stockist of this breakthrough range, and we asked Centre Marketing Manager Elke Bell from H&E Group to give these glorious test tubes a four week trial. Here’s what she said: “I couldn’t be more excited to try these products after hearing all about how and why they were created. I have had ongoing issues with pores, redness, light acne, dryness and fine lines, so you can imagine my surprise when noticing an honest difference in my skin by day two! I’ve used so many products

and brands available on the market and am a bit of a skincare fiend, but I was blown away by the results of the DNA range and was even more keen to complete the trial after such a great start. The bottle pumps only allow for a small amount of product which led me to believe it wouldn’t be as effective, as I usually need to slather my skin with other products. Each morning I genuinely felt my skin was a shade brighter, smoother and more even when I woke up. I also noticed a difference with how my make up looked. It seemed to stay for a full day, almost like my skin had become a perfectly primed base yet with no primer on it! My favourite product would have to be the day cream. SPF coverage, it richly moisturises the skin without causing pimples, and it has a shine free / matte finish. Love, love, love! I would recommend these products to anyone and have already done so to my friends and family! For all enquiries please contact Esteem Medi Spa, Marina Mirage.

FAVOURITES Winner Best Aesthetic Practice 2015 My Face My Body Awards











Marina Mirage Magazine Makeup Artist Mia Connor (@miaconnor) gives us her top beauty tips for Summer... “Less is best so keep skin looking like skin, fresh & luminous which will result in a more youthful look. More highlighting, less contouring. Contouring is a trend I feel is on its way out and belongs more so in Photoshoot land. Highlighting is a fool proof way of brightening up dull, flat skin.

SHERYLE PYATT When did you start your business? I set up The Ephraim Spa in July 2005 and loved every minute of it! However, I was offered the opportunity to take over the Couture Salon in 2014 and I was ready for a change, so I sold the Ephraim Spa and moved across to Marina Mirage - where we have been happy ever since. How much has the industry changed since you first started? It hasn’t really changed that much in many respects, as the clients still want to experience first class service and value for money; the stylists and therapists still have huge passion for what they do. But the biggest change is in products. We are seeing a huge trend towards people wanting a product that uses eco-friendly ingredients that actually works. For a long time you could only get one or the other! We’ve always had a strong focus on industryspecific products to ensure our clients receive the best along with premium advice, and today’s products are just spectacular. Our in-salon choice is the French company La Biosthetique. They offer amazing support to our business, they have premium products manufactured under strict European guide lines using ultra-high quality ingredients, the packaging looks amazing, they have great up to date training for employees…it’s a fantastic experience working with them and our clients really feel the benefit of having access to such a premium brand. They also cover hair, skin and makeup, which really complements what we offer. The other major change is obviously technology – which I don’t think is just in our industry! This has become critical in telling the story about your business, and there’s still so much more to come from this area I believe. What is it about your role that you like doing most, and why? Honestly, it’s working closely with my staff and helping our clients feel great. We’ve got such a great team here, and I love seeing the growth of the business and the growth of the people I work with daily. It’s exciting to see the change and results that we work so hard to achieve in business, especially in trying economic times both locally and internationally. What’s your top tip for effortless beauty this summer? It’s the same secret recipe all year round: use good quality products in your routine at home to make your salon treatment really last. And if you feel like something isn’t working – just ask your stylist or beauty therapist! It’s their job to know the latest tricks, tips and products so make the most of their passion and expertise. Don’t wait another six weeks for your appointment to come round – pick up the phone and just ask them. 07 5503 1000 Shop 142-143, Level 1, Marina Mirage.

POMEGRANATE MARGARITA by Glass Dining & Lounge Bar 30ml Tequila 30ml Pama Pomegranate Liquer 20ml Agave Nectar Fresh Lime Juice Shake with ice and serve.

SALTED CARAMEL PANNA COTTA by N3 Tapas Bar PANNA COTTA 700ml cream 300ml milk 200g caster sugar 2 pinch sea salt 1 gelatine leaf (bloomed) MASCARPONE CREAM 200g mascarpone cheese 75g ice sugar 1 vanilla bean (seeds only)

CARAMEL POPCORN 100g popping corn 250g sugar 125ml water PRALINE SAND 50ml burnt butter 200g maltosec 100g pistachio praline

METHOD To make the panna cotta, add milk and cream to a small saucepan, bring to 80 degrees C then let sit. Meanwhile, place the sugar into a separate pan and bring to 156 degrees or until a nice amber colour. Once the desired temperature or colour is reached, add the warm cream mixture and bring to the boil, stirring to combine; add salt to taste. Add bloomed gelatine (done by soaking a gelatine leaf in iced water for 15 minutes), then pour cream mixture into moulds or glasses, sprayed lightly with oil. For the popcorn - pop the corn in a pan with a lid, using a little butter. Once the popcorn slows down with the popping process remove from heat and allow the rest to pop using the heat within the pan. In a separate pan add the sugar and water together, cooking on medium heat til nice rich caramel is reached. Do not stir or you will crystalize the caramel. Add the caramel to your popcorn, mixing it with a spatula until all the popcorn is coated. For the mascarpone cream add all ingredients together and fold through until combined. Finally for the praline sand, burn your butter in a frying pan then add to a stainless steel bowl. Add the maltosec until combined. To finish, add your pistachio praline to the maltosec and mix once more.
