A PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM LISA
I would like to thank all our dear customers who have supported us over the year. The media has made no secret of the challenges facing retail and small business. It makes an enormous difference when you choose to buy locally made product, not only to us but the suppliers and factories with whom we work. I am passionate about supporting our niche manufacturing industry, so please where possible buy Australian. I think this passion has led to my recent appointment on the Victorian Manufacturing Council with Minister Dalla-Riva, a position I hope will make a difference. Passion is everything in this business and I am so excited for the year ahead. The Winter 13 Collection is a journey back to my early creative roots, I have enjoyed the freedom of creation. I will be working on Summer 13/14 over the next few months and every parcel of sampling fabric that arrives gives me the same thrill it did 30 years ago.
Yes, 2013 will mark the 30th year of the Lisa Barron label. It seems we've come a long way from the garage in South Yarra where I set up the machines, but in my heart it is not that far.
The team and I would like to wish you all a safe and happy festive season and an excitingly fashionable New Year.
Best wishes Lisa.
