5 Minutes with Ilona Anthony
Your Williamstown boutique has been opened for…“I can’t believe it’s nearly been a year already. We also have another store in Templestowe and it’s a family business as both of my daughters also work for the business.”
Favourite item in the store…“Are these boots I’m holding up now. You can’t go past a good quality boot and all of our shoes are European.”
Your style…“I love what I’m wearing right now and black is a shade I often tend to wear. The most common question I receive is, “Does this item come in black?” More women need to embrace colour.
The vision…“We are a one stop shop. You can buy an outfit, shoes or a piece of jewellery and you’re all set. For the races, our store always features absolutely stunning hats.”
When you’re not working…“I love spending time with the family and just relaxing.”
How many pairs of shoes do you own…“I actually don’t have that many and would own less than 50.”
Fashion advice for the women of Melbourne…“I’m such a hypocrite because look at what I’m wearing right now but please get out of black for Winter! I need to follow my own advice too!”
