Fresh Collective Style Profile – Pip Bradford

Pip Bradford has been a superfan of Fresh Collective for a few years now, and we adore her.  We adore her so much, in fact, that we used a picture of her for a document we created to describe our target market to educate new designers who join us what kind of woman shops at Fresh Collective!  When she was at our Kensington location for her Style Profile shoot, she took over the store and sold things to other customers as I just watched!  She’s fun, funny and totally awesome.

~Laura-Jean, CEO and founder of Fresh Collective


Name: Pip Bradford
Occupation: Theatre Production
Age: 31
Lifestyle: I go where the sea takes me.


Dress: Dania Tunic – Desserts and Skirts $125
Necklace: Curious Oddities $26
Boots: Erika Lonna Boot – Hush Puppies $150
Tights: Pip’s own
Style Coach notes:  Pip chose and styled her own outfits for this shoot, and then bought most of what she chose, so I just stood back and watched. 😉 She chose this tunic because of its versatility (dress or top; wear it long or pull it shorter and blouse it out a bit) and comfort. It is a best seller because it just works for most women and feels amazingly soft. ~ Laura-Jean

What’s a typical day like for you?
There is no such thing.
What in your life is really important to you?
My career, my friends, and my library. Seriously I really love my library.


Dress: Mona Dress – Studio Fresh $189
Boots: Ninette – Miz Mooz $239
Style Coach notes: When Pip showed up I showed her this dress, and said, “This one has Pip written all over it!” I must have been right, as she bought it after the shoot! This dress has a great combination of fit and looseness. The band under the bust gives shape, but the skirt falls away and then balloons a bit at the bottom with some tucks. This is one of my personal faves of the season. ~ Laura-Jean

What would you like to be remembered for?
Rocking out as hard as I can, whenever I can.

What role does fashion play in your life?
I live a really full life, and I need my clothes to do everything I do, whether it be hanging lights at the top of a ladder, running a production meeting like a boss, reading comics in the corner of my favourite shop, or having drinks with my friends at my local.


Dress: April Pinch Dress – Studio Fresh $210
Shoes: Lonna Mary Jane – Hush Puppies $100
Style Coach notes: Pip has a big bold personality so a dress this dramatic is easy for her to pull off. This dress has it all – and it’s a top seller because of it. A stretchy panel across the back allows it to fit snug but comfortable, and the gathers and tucks show off your shape while not showing every detail. The asymmetrical details are a statement but nothing is too over the top in this dress. This is a great event dress. ~ Laura-Jean

What do you love about shopping at Fresh Collective?
Every time I go to Fresh Collective, shopping feels like an awesome, fun, group event. Not only the staff, but all the other customers, make buying clothes there feel like a real community activity, which is tons of fun!


Dress: Jersey dress – Atelier B $128
Necklace: The Simples Cluster – burfurtART $38
Shoes: Lonna Mary Jane – Hush Puppy $100
Style Coach notes: This dress works well for most women because the waitband gives a great shape, and the pleats and pockets just fall in the right place. As with so many of our pieces, it’s soft and stretchy for maximum wearability. This dress is also a great “blank canvas” piece- it can range from casual to dressy depending on the accessories. ~Laura-Jean
