Glamadonna is a premium fashion jewellery retailer who has been accessorising stylish women since 2004. Glamadonna's story began when founder Vanessa Roberts realised the glamourous jewellery she longed to wear was simply not available in the stores, at least not in her budget! A fashion-addict since childhood, Vanessa obsessed over fashion editorials and the catwalks until eventually, she decided to create a retail concept that brought the excitement and glamour of designer style into an accessible format that she and many like her could enjoy.Over the years Glamadonna's collection has evolved greatly, and in 2014 we are now a dedicated bridal and special occasion jewellery specialist - helping women all over the world look and feel amazing on their many big occasions!
Glamadonna pieces have been worn on the Oscars red carpet, is frequently worn on air by TV and media personalities, and has even been spotted on Australia's first female Prime Minister!Whilst Glamadonna's story began with the love of high fashion, we are individualists at heart and therefore you won't find any ubiquitious celebrity fashion or commoditised labels appearing in our collection. Our vast bridal and special event collection aims to be a unique reflection of the many women who desire to wear it.
To view or purchase any of our pieces in person at our new Sydney office, please email us at email@example.com to make an appointment.
About Vanessa: After graduating from Sydney University with a degree in Economics, Vanessa began her working career in the stockbroking industry, starting out in institutional equities for a large international broking firm at a very early age. After a few years in the industry, Vanessa was unable to silence her desire for self-employment, and in 2004 the Glamadonna concept was born. Vanessa opened the first Glamadonna store in the MLC Centre Sydney in that year. Vanessa opened a second store in the iconic Strand Arcade 2 years later. In 2014, after 10 years of traditional retailing, Vanessa decided to change the format of the Glamadonna concept to reflect the changing commercial landscape as well as her own passions. Glamadonna has now been reinvented into a predominantly online-only retailer (with Sydney showroom open by appointment) that specialises in beautiful, hard-to-find bridal and special occasion jewellery for women the world over.
This change in format for Glamadonna also co-incided with Vanessa's new editorship of the 'Breakfast With Audrey' fashion and lifestyle blog. Please visit the blog for lots of fashion, beauty, lifestyle and wedding scoop as seen through Vanessa's unique perspective. Breakfast with Audrey can also be followed on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter!
Vanessa runs the Glamadonna online store and showroom alongside the BWA blog - seeing the online world as the most exciting way forward for both retailing and publishing.
