RNA Furniture

Do you have an appreciation of classic oriental furniture? nepchin is delighted to talk to Annie the Manager at RNA Furniture in Rozelle Sydney about their collection of furniture.

————————————-

nepchin: “Hi Annie, very nice store you have in Rozelle/Balamain. When nepchin stepped into the store we didn’t know where to start looking! Can you tell us abit about the type of furniture you have available? We don’t know too much about classic furniture so it would be good to get an understanding of it from your perspective.”

Annie: “The furniture is about the carving, the history and the colour of Chinese culture. The collection we have are pieces of art that carry history and includes display cabinets, bedside treasure draws, bedside tables and hall tables. We also have ornaments in our collections like table lamps, porcelain figures, jewellery boxes and the hand calligraphy paintings which are very popular.”

nepchin: “You mentioned on a previous occasion you have been around for 10 years. That’s quite a while. What kind of customers do you normally cater for? and do have any customers interstate or overseas?”

Annie: “Our customers are quite varied but generally most have an appreciation for art. Our customers include people such as interior designers and art collectors who come to us regularly. We are also frequented by overseas and interstate visitors to our store when they visit Sydney and a lot of people are suggested to us by their family and friends. We can arrange for pieces to be delivered to customer’s home local or abroad.”

nepchin: “Amongst your collection here, are there any pieces that customers seem to always ask for? and have you had any unusual requests that customers have been looking for?”

Annie: “We have customers who sometimes come across pieces that have found whilst reading a book and they show us pictures of them. We try to help them look for these pieces. These could be a candle holder or classic reproduction items. One of popular items we have are scrolls we get enquiries on their meaning and Chinese writing styles.”

nepchin: “What do you like most about the classic furniture you have?”

Annie: “I really love the classic oriental furniture. There is a special feeling every time we bring in new pieces as they are different in their own way. When we look at the pieces you can see the hand craft and workmanship in them. There is a feeling and appreciation of the passion and heart that goes into each one. It gives me a strong connection with the history.”

nepchin: “Annie, it’s been really great to learn about classic furniture today and thank you for giving up your time to speak with us.”

Annie: “Thank you for your time and give me an opportunity to share our culture and history with everyone.”

nepchin: “Over 20 years in the IT industry, you must have seen competitors come and go, your markets continually being challenged. What in your mind do you think has been the key to Trinix’s longevity and success?

Prince Peters: “I think the key is the ability to adapt to changes in technology and having strong relationships with clients and suppliers and adhering to quality.”

nepchin: “Trinix has ISO:9001 accreditation and is an authorised PC supplier to the Western Australian Government. What does this mean to your everyday customers like the mums and dads out there and to your business clients?”

Prince Peters: “It means we have an internationally recognised quality management system. So in other words we have the ability to provide a consistent high level of services and product conformity.”

nepchin: “Over the years, have you seen anything that makes you smile when you remember an incident that might have been funny or peculiar?”

Prince Peters: “I’ve been in the industry for over 10 years and recalling the days when there was no such things as broadband or wireless and most business carried out over the phone or face to face. This always makes me wonder how we survived without being ‘online’. How times have changed…”

nepchin: “It’s been fantastic spending time with you and Trinix Australia. We wish you on-going success for another 20 years.”

Prince Peters: “Thank you very much for letting us share a bit about ourselves.”

———————————————–

nepchin: “Sarrah, nice to meet you. Your concept of Runway Ready Fashion. When a customer buys outfits from your collection, what should they expect.”

Sarrah: “My customers should expect to feel like they have had 1st class service the kind of service you would expect from exclusive boutiques by specially gift wrapping every purchase made by my customers giving them that extra bit of attention they deserve. RRF keeps prices lower then most stores and online boutiques standing by the Runway Ready Fashion slogan “Giving women that Runway Ready look without the price tag” “.

nepchin: “Can you tell us abit about your collection and your designers. Also do you have any favourite pieces?!”

Sarrah: “I personally hand pick every piece i sell on my site and would never sell anything less then the best. Everything available on RRF to me is unique and special in its own way making everyday women look and feel like high fashion:) Most of the designers are home grown (Australia) Such as Juliet in Stilettos, Lovers & Collaborators plus Angel & Belle, I also stock Kitten Pink & PasCucci Couture who dress reality stars Snooki & JWoww from Jersey Shore. A favourite piece. Hmmm if i had to pick one it would have to be The Pleated Pants by Lovers & Collaborators i wear them everywhere!

nepchin: “How did Runway Ready Fashion come to be? Is it something you’ve always dreamed of doing?

Sarrah: “I have always wanted to be a fashion designer & to have my own clothing boutique. So last year I started a small website called Runway Ready Fashion i never expected it to grow so fast as i just thought it would be something to do in my spare time with friends and family. But now I love it and wouldn’t change it for anything “!

nepchin: “We know you send to anywhere in Australia with free postage and handling. Is it possible to get something sent abroad to another country? and is there any advice to customers on how to best get the right size and fit when they make an order?”

Sarrah: “Yes! I send abroad at a flat rate of $15 to anywhere else in the world. Customers should contact me direct or through the site to find out measurements or to give me their details so i can suggest the best size for them. Clothing may vary depending on the designers and manufacturers which is why i don’t have a sizing chart available the website ”

Milkbar Fashion

Fashion that gives you the feeling of Summer days lying on the grass. We talk to Allisa to find out the inspiration behind Milkbar Fashion.

———————————
nepchin: “Allisa, what is Milkbar Fashion? where did the inspiration come from? Has it been around long?”

Allisa: “MilkBar Fashion has been in my mind for a some time and launched earlier his year. When i was a kid I would skip up from the beach or the neighbours swimming pool to get a milkshake and a bag of mixed lollies from the local MilkBar. That feeling of excitement, feeling carefree is where my vision came from for Milkbar Fashion…….. ’cause how much fun was that!

Why is it that as we get older, the simple things in life seem to matter less?
Why is it that the we underestimate the wardrobe choices we made as a child?
Simple, free flowing cotton dress’s, cut off shorts, snuggly hoodies!
We all looked great when we look back at those faded photos… the key…. we felt good!

That is what style and fashion is for me. Having worked in the fashion Industry for over 10 years I decided to create www.MilkbarFashion.com.au as an online shopping experience with style to mirror the ease of those effortless and fun summer days….”

nepchin: “On your online store, www.MilkbarFashion.com.au seems to offer quite alot of items. Obviously nepchin doesn’t know too much about fashion so can you tell us what is in your range?”

Allisa: “At MilkBarFashion, we stock primarily Australian Boutique labels. Fashion brands that are unique to individual style & not found everywhere! I love to support upcoming Australian labels such as Kissin Cussin, Talulah, Mimosa, Phylis Boho, Gracious Me, Jodilee, Milli Loves Min and Melinda and Narina.”

nepchin: “Clients that buy online from you, are there any tips on making sure you get the right size etc? Is it easy to get something delivered and what if my friend in Singapore wanted one of your pieces?”

Allisa: “At MilkBar Fashion, we offer FREE RETURNS so our customers can shop online with confidence! We always try give customers tips on sizing of each style in its description and we are on hand to answer any questions from our customers on fit or styling.”

nepchin: “Allisa, really appreciate your time with us and looking forward to seeing more of your wonderful collections.”

Allisa: “Having just spent last week at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week viewing all the exciting new lines for Summer 2011 Milkbar Fashion has lots of exciting new Austrlain labels on board and some exciting projects happening behind the scenes, so stay tuned!

Have a great day and thanks for your time…”
