tommie shopping + personal styling tour
tommie shopping + personal styling tour
We’re super excited here at tommie to offer a new service we’ve been working hard on! Our ‘tommie tours’. These will differ each time, with the intention always remaining the same - to educate, raise awareness and bring people together to create connection, self expansion and new ways of living that are ethical and sustainable.
Our first tour is with tommie founder, editor + eco-stylist, Natalie Shehata. To learn a little more about Natalie, read here.
Natalie has been a stylist for 10 years, having gotten into the industry whilst studying a Bachelor of Commerce and realising very quickly that a job in the corporate world wasn’t for her. Everything she was learning in the lecture room, was the antithesis of how she lived her life and the values that she held. It wasn’t the future she wanted to contribute to and she knew she wanted to be of service in some other way - to do good in the world and make a difference.
Natalie has always had a fascination with the art of dress and how others present themselves to the world. For her, getting dressed is her art, it’s how she expresses herself most creatively - and how she allows herself the joy of play. Clothes really have the power to transform the way you feel, and the story you share with others visually.
“The way I choose to dress not only speaks to my love for self expression and individuality, but it also speaks more deeply about my ethics and the kind of world I want to live in and support. The clothes we choose to wear make a statement. The pieces you choose to invest in give voice to the marginalised, oppressed and they are powerful change-makers in proving that there are people behind the clothes we wear. Now is the time to consider how using your purchasing power can actually contribute to a more safe, fair and just world for the Women who make our clothes”, she says.
After years of working with brands, doing research and dressing and styling people - she wanted to offer all this knowledge and education back to our tommie community; to encourage and inspire you to shop with integrity, with your values front and centre.
On this walking tour around Sydney’s vibrant and inclusive Inner West, Natalie will not only educate you on the inner workings of fashion and what happens behind the seams, but she’ll also introduce you to some of her most favourite fashion boutiques, retailers, brands and second hand stores.
She will also be there to teach you her best styling tips - all the tricks of the trade made available to you exclusively on the day.
