SSC Newspaper : September 2010
www.ourstrathfield.com.au By Natalie O’Brien Movie stars have for years known the value of one. Celebrities rarely make a red carpet move without them. Yes, we’re talking about personal stylists. World-famous stylists, like Patricia Field (Sex and the City) have revolutionised women’s fashion. And while Field has helped make television characters Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte into global style icons, British style gurus Trinny and Susannah have become household names by giving fashion advice to women all over the world. Now Strathfield locals can get the same Hollywood treatment with advice from a personal stylist who has worked for the biggest titles in women’s magazines, such as Instyle, Harpers Bazaar, Vogue and Elle. Fiona “Fifi” Milne, who has also worked with the likes of Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman and Elle MacPherson, is coming to Westfield Burwood to discuss your fashion needs. She will be in the centre every day at 11am and 1pm until September 15 offering style sessions. Trinny and Susannah are also returning to Sydney soon to show local shoppers how the latest spring and summer fashions can work for their body shape and will unveil some dramatic transformations; they will be appearing once again at Westfield Burwood. “ We are excited to be coming out to Australia again... to show women how to stay looking good and wear the right clothes for their body shapes. We loved meeting the people of Burwood last year and we invite everyone to come down and see us,” said Susannah Constantine. Stylist Kristen Denning, who will be permanently based at Westfield Burwood, has worked in the fashion world for several years styling Channel 10 celebrities, working on seasonal street wear campaigns and youth fashion parades. With a one-on-one session you can discuss your fashion needs and then shop ‘til you drop at Westfield. A session with a personal stylist will make you feel a million dollars (without spending it) as there is no obligation to purchase anything afterwards. DETAILS Fifi is running style sessions daily until September 15. Times: 11am and 1pm. Book personal stylist Kristen Denning for a consultation. Cost: $90 per hour (minimum two-hour booking required). Payment: cash only. www.westfield.com.au/fashion/fashion-services/ personal-stylist/ SPEED CAMPAIGN As part of the Local Government Road Safety Program, Strathfield Council have set up mobile speed counters to remind drivers to slow down in residential areas.

The Strathfield Ethnic Business & Employment Study, the first of its kind commissioned by local government in Australia, has identified a wide range of ethnic business owners in Strathfield – plus ways to help them grow. The ground-breaking study by the University of Western Sydney focusses on businesses operating within the boundaries of the Strathfield municipality and has identified the following sectors: • The Chinese – mainly involved in manufacturing and wholesale; • The South Koreans – involved in retail trade, food and administration and support services; • The Lebanese – focussed on building and construction; • The Italians – largely concentrate on wholesale trade; • The Indians – still establishing their business profile. The study compared different aspects of these migrant ethnic groups, such as their business ownership rates, labour force participation rates and whether they live and work in Strathfield. The results of the study provide a useful guide for Strathfield Council and the sort of programs needed to promote local economic development. The key recommendations are that networking events and so called “lunch rooms” be set up to encourage trade with some of their countries of origin and trade between them and Australian businesses. Surrounding councils hold successful China Lunch Rooms and India Lunch Rooms, so the establishment of a Korea Lunch Room in Strathfield could be of great benefit to that business community. The report also recommends that council adopts the Industry Cooperative Innovation Program (ICIP), which is designed to help business to business cooperation on innovative projects in Australia and around the world. The program helps business owners find their counterparts overseas – and increase their links and trade. It was also recommended that the council source grants from an AusIndustry program which involves fund managers raising money to invest in businesses. The report says businesses should take advantage of Australia’s growing trade with China and work closely with the Australia China Council which provides grants to promote innovative business and trade programs between Australian businesses and Chinese businesses.
