We were so honoured to have our story told by GT Magazine. Here is an extract told by Meagan Rooth (pic by Peter Ristevski)
"Shortlist shop is a mobile community which strives to promote partnerships with likeminded businesswomen and empower worldly creatives.
It is a welcoming studio run by the designer and her niece in a creative space where women come together to shop, to talk and to appreciate the beautiful range of clothing on offer. Tracey's collection is reflective of her comfortable and contemporary style. The shapes are simple, and ageless, designed for real women who are looking for pieces that can be adapted to sit with their own personal style"
Quotes from Tracey: "We consider real women at every stage of design - through fit, fabric selection and colour choice."
"I make all the patterns myself and travel to Indonesia four times a year to collaborate with suppliers and perfect colours, prints and embroideries"
Similarly homewares are sourced by her interior stylist niece Carmen Christy from makers locally and abroad (but more on that in another Short Story)
PS. That's Tracey in the cornflower silk and Carmen in the pebble silk.
Meet Kadek. This amazing woman runs her small production business out of her family home in the tropical island of Bali, Indonesia.
What initially draws you to Kadek, is her warmth, her smile and her laughter. Kadek’s story is about a woman with the drive to start her own business in a country that does not encourage married women with children to pursue a career.
Kadek’s story is one of passion, determination, compromise, love and balance.
She knows when to say no and when it is time to nurture herself, her family and her company.
Truly an amazing woman, we are proud to partner with her business and stand by her philosophy of life balance.
Shortlist work together with a small team of talented artisans within the local Indonesian community. All pieces are individually crafted by hand or using traditional methods by these highly skilled individuals, many of whom have perfected their skills passed down through generations.
Inspired by real women shortlist also aims to support real women. Crafted in Indonesia by emerging artists and makers, the collection supports and celebrates grass roots talent. We partner with business women to create opportunity for them, and beautiful product for you.
