He knows what he wants to wear, what type of clothes he wants to buy and the look he is trying to achieve. It is always difficult for him, as the clothes he wants to wear generally belong in the men's section of the store, and the selection in his size just doesn't cut it. 2 years ago, Dillan, then aged 10, approached his parents with an idea. He had thought of a design and a brand name for a label he wanted to create. His Mum, Jessica, still has the little piece of paper he gave her on that day. "Dillan came to us with his ideas. They were great, but we were unsure of whether it would last and if he was genuinely interested in creating this brand that would involve alot of work and alot of startup funds. We sat on it for 2 years, and when he still kept asking to pursue his first range we decided we were all in and we were going to let him have a go". With collaboration with his Mum, they were able to source some help from Sydney company, Ampar, who helped them immensely with communicating with factories, understanding minimum quantities, customs and transport. "Mum helped me with my designs. She is a fabric designer, so she was able to help me create my designs on Illustrator so the factory could use them." Dillan wanted his first range to be about what he likes, what his friends like and the types of clothes that they want to wear. "Our parents buy our clothes for us when we aren't with them. Mum would buy some things she thinks I would like, but most of the time it isn't what I want to wear. The range I have designed is in the style I like. The shorts are comfortable, and are in a soft cotton tracksuit material that is easy to wear but also has the slim design we want. The t-shirts are black and white and simple. I like to go to theme parks, I like music, I love footy, I like the beach. This is what the range is about." The Trix season one collection designed by Dillan is available through the Trix website - www.trixclothing.com.au, and in Forever Lee Gawler SA.

Key Retail Sectors Grow Digital Advertising Spend Despite Uncertain Times 2017-06-19T23:32:56Z key-retail-sectors-grow-digital-advertising-spend-despite-uncertain-times AUSTRALIA’S Retail sector continues to invest in Digital media as it faces an increasingly disruptive market but there’s little agreement on the preferred Digital media channel, the latest Standard Media Index (SMI) advertising payment data has revealed. SMI’s data for the first quarter of 2017 shows the key retail sectors of Department Stores, Discount Stores and Apparel/Luxury Fashion/Shoes have all continued to grow the amount spent on Digital advertising. However, the amounts spent and where it was spent differed markedly. Although the Apparel/Luxury Fashion category spends the least on Digital media, of the three sectors it is growing the fastest with its Digital ad spend jumping 73.6% in the quarter. And interestingly, Apparel retailers are the only category spending more on quality Content Sites (mostly news-based websites) with both Department and Discount Stores reducing their ad spend to this area in favour of the Exchanges (or programmatic) market where advertising purchases are automated. The growth in Programmatic advertising was most pronounced within the Department Store category in this quarter with that ad spend quadrupling, while for Discount Stores the highest growth in ad spend was among Pure Play – Mobile groups which specialise in in-app mobile advertising. SMI AU/NZ Managing Director Jane Schulze said the data again highlighted distinct differences in the Digital media channels chosen by key Retail sectors. “Within SMI’s overall Retail category data it’s clear there are distinct Retail ecosystems, each with their preferred method of approaching Digital media,’’ she said. “For example, Department Stores spend the greatest proportion of their Digital media budget on Social Sites; Discount Stores spend the greatest proportion on Search marketing while Apparel retailers prefer quality Content Sites.’ “The only commonality in ad spend trends we’ve seen in the most recent data is the reducing in spend onto Pure Play Video Sites, which may reflect some of the recent debate around advertising on brand-safe websites.’’ Ms Schulze said the lack of consistency in approach to the Digital market was interesting given the number of Retailers in financial difficulty as new overseas entrants ramp up competition in the sector. “Clearly the various Retail sectors are continuing to test what works best as we can see that while Apparel retailers are now spending the largest part of their Digital advertising budgets on Content Sites, in the fourth quarter of 2016 most of their Digital ad spend was directed to Social Sites,” she said. “The Digital media landscape continues to evolve at a rapid pace and SMI is the only company able to accurately track the movements in ad spend for these key categories across all Digital sectors.’’  Ms Schulze said SMI’s Digital data is released each month on the 15th and then updated again later in the month to ensure all Digital payments for the month have been collected. “The industry has historically relied on advertising estimates to gauge category expenditure trends, but this is fraught in the Digital world where campaigns are fed through automated exchanges and advertisers have the option of buying ads on a cost-per-click or cost-per-view basis. Estimates are therefore unreliable and only actual payment data can reveal true trends.’’ Note: SMI’s Department Store data includes all Digital ad spend for retailers such as David Jones, Myer and Harris Scarfe; its Discount Stores data includes retailers such as Big W and Kmart while its Apparel data includes ad spend for retailers such as Country Road, Witchery and Marcs. About SMI: SMI has partnered with the world’s largest media Agencies to collect their payments for media campaigns which is then aggregated to provide accurate information on advertising expenditure across all media and 30 global product categories. SMI is headquartered in New York. South Australia’s Jason Fassbender has been crowned as Australia’s best hairdresser at leading industry awards 2017-06-13T07:12:59Z south-australia-s-jason-fassbender-has-been-crowned-as-australia-s-best-hairdresser-at-leading-industry-awards Tuesday 13 June 2017, Sydney: Jason Fassbender has been named the 2017 Australian Hairdresser of the Year at the Schwarzkopf Professional Hair Expo Awards Gala in Sydney, the first time a South Australian hairdresser has taken out the title in the 32-year history of the awards. A Creative Director at Parlour Hair Unley salon in Adelaide, Jason’s winning photographic collection was strongly inspired by fashion and individuality. “Winning the Australian Hairdresser of the Year award feels totally unbelievable, I didn't even think I would be a finalist, let alone win it,” said Jason. “Hopefully it will open up a lot of opportunities for me and I'm really looking forward to promoting the industry and helping to highlight the work that we do”. The 2017 Schwarzkopf Professional Hair Expo New Zealand Hairdresser of the Year award went once again to Danny Pato of D&M Hair Design in Ponsonby, Auckland, who also took out the title in 2016. “I've been a hairdresser for over 20 years – this is my second year winning this award and I'm just so grateful to be doing what I love and to be recognised by iconic people in the industry”, said Danny. The pinnacle celebration of Hair Expo Australia, the coveted Hair Expo Awards have been elevating the hair industry for more than 30 years by recognising and celebrating excellence in creative vision, advanced technical skill, and business acumen – the complete picture of what exceptional hairdressing is.

In May, 107 finalists were announced across 18 creative and business categories, chosen by a judging panel of 12 international and 12 local judges, representing some of the most celebrated names in hair and media from Australasia and across the globe. More than 1000 hair professionals gathered to hear 20 winners announced at the lavish awards gala, hosted by The Bachelor’s Osher Günsberg and held this year in the Grand Ballroom of the ICC Sydney. As well crowning the winners of the 18 existing categories judged prior to the event, the additional categories of People’s Choice and the Hall of Fame Award are also presented on the night. A full list of winners is available from page 2 “Jason has been chosen for his achievements both in creative vision and leadership in the industry, making him a comprehensive ambassador for this multifaceted profession”, said Julia Erben, Event Director for Hair Expo Australia. “The heritage of the Hair Expo Awards is to entice participants to be the best they can be, and our winners tonight are a true testimony to this demanding challenge. During their extraordinary careers, they have not only demonstrated all-inspiring creative vision but have also encouraged and educated countless peers, securing the future of our industry”, added Julia. “Big congratulations to all the finalists and winners!
