Stylists In Residence
Brisbane | October 6 - November 24
Last year Mys Tyler™ partnered with Mirvac to launch the Stylist in Residence program at Toombul Shopping Centre, Brisbane. Twelve Mys Tyler™ Contributors made themselves at home to provide 1:1 styling sessions, host masterclasses, fashion panels, participate in photoshoots and a Fashion Show to show off the best of in-store fashion. The program was such a huge success, that we had a round two, taking it to Birkenhead Point which launched on Valentines Day, running for one month.
On the 22nd of November, Mys Tyler hosted a Fashion Show at Toombul Shopping Centre, Brisbane, to wrap our Stylist in Residence program with our fabulous Contributors.
Check out what's on trend in store and admire our beautiful

I am 34 years old, a wife and a mum of two beautiful girls. Not only have I worked as a makeup artist for the last decade but I am also now studying fashion. Having a curvy figure, I have taken a particular interest in exploring all areas of mid-size and plus-size fashion, from how women can embrace their shape and style, to more in depth discussions on plus size identity within the fashion industry.
Hi! I'm Sonia Koroma; I'm a Brisbane based fashion and lifestyle blogger. I am passionate about inspiring women to own their personal style. And you can make it as colourful as you want. I share my own take on fashion with a bit of soul and lots of colour.
Hello and welcome. Style and what people wear has fascinated me for as long as I can remember. As a woman in her fifties and a mum of four my aim is to dress stylishly and make good wardrobe choices that will stay with me.
Dimitie Kendall is a personal stylist, colour analyst, life coach and fashion influencer on Instagram @fashionfor50s. Her main focus is on helping women 50 plus to look and feel good inside and out. Dimitie has always loved fashion but after raising her two children, found she’d lost her sense of style. When she decided to rectify the issue she discovered it was hard to find clothing that didn’t make her look like her 20something daughter or her 80plus mother.
A Brisbane based model, content creator, a stepmom to 2 gorgeous young ladies and a mum to 2 adorable fur babies. I started my fashion and beauty career on Instagram 3 years ago at the age of 44.
Bec Smith is a personal stylist and fashion blogger based in Brisbane. As a self- confessed shopaholic, Bec has spent years styling her friends and family as well as building her wardrobe with classic, statement pieces. She offers her personal styling services to clients helping them to transform their own wardrobes and give them a new lease on life.
Slowly but steadily, I learned the art of not giving a f*ck, and that’s when it happened: I saw those gorgeous, sparkly shoes, and I bought them, ignoring my self-imposed boundaries of ‘I can’t wear that’. I decided that I was worth it. No more hiding me.

Mys Tyler x Toombul Shopping Centre Fashion Show
To conclude an incredible 50 days of Style with Mys Tyler x Toombul's Stylists in Residence program, we are excited to present a diverse and size-inclusive fashion parade!

Inclusivity and Diversity in the Fashion Industry
The fashion industry has a long-standing reputation of discriminating against race, size, gender, age, and religion - often depicting the ‘perfect’ model as tall, fair, young, and slim. Periods of social unrest last year pushed diversity to the top of the industry’s agenda, leading to a myriad of inclusive campaigns and initiatives. Has there been any progress?
This panel brought together leading advocates within the fashion community to dismantle industry norms, and show how designers, brands, and all of us can be truly, and authentically, inclusive.
Panelists: Suzanne Dang, CurvySam, Sonish Space, Julz Elizabeth (moderator), Stevie Angel, Nadia Tucker, Amy Grant
What our panelists had to say...
We are all human, we are all different, we should be who we want to be. I’m the colorful one, and I own that. I was a size 6, I had a baby, I am a size 10, and sometimes I’m a size 12. (I don''t want to be) limited because of my age, or because I’m a mother. This is how I want to express myself, how I want to show up for myself” from a war torn country.”
Sonish Space, Fashion Blogger
"Look at a store, look around and consider (if) you're representing everyone, not just the norm. Think about what seating you have, will it suit someone that has a big bum, think about their height and size. It’s not just visual, there’s a very physical aspect."
"There shouldn’t be an ideal body type. We are women we are not fruit... We are conditioned to believe that we will be happier, smarter, richer by being skinny. We can challenge this by using our own voices."
Amy Grant, ASI Qualified Stylist
