Linda Savage owns and manages Magazine Clothing and has a great team behind her. All staff members at Magazine possess extraordinary styling ability, masses of creativity and fashion flair, as well as professionalism and an absolute commitment to do whatever it takes to deliver outstanding service. “They are there to help you look and feel your best, by offering you exceptional service, styling guidance and the attention you deserve,” added Savage.
Savage has always had a passion for good design and an interest in the transformative power of fashion. As the owner of Magazine Clothing, she is absolutely in her element helping women look and feel good about themselves. Leading up to her involvement with Magazine Clothing, Savage had various roles in the fashion industry, including clothing design and retail management. When the opportunity to take on Magazine Clothing came up, she immediately saw the potential and relished the idea of being in business for herself. She acquired Magazine in December 2006 and opened the Point Chevalier store in August 2008. Next to open was the Mount Eden store in May 2009, later followed by Mount Maunganui in September 2010, then Palmerston North in August 2012, Taihape Outlet in July 2013, Pukekohe in September 2013, New Plymouth in March 2015, Riccarton and Christchurch in August 2016, and most recently Hamilton in March 2017. “We are in the process of relocating our Point Chevalier Outlet store to beautiful new premises in Onehunga as well as opening our online store soon. The operation has grown from two staff to over 30, and enjoys a very loyal following of clients,” she said.
Savage explained that Magazine is very passionate about New Zealand designed and made clothing. Most of the labels found at Magazine Clothing are made in New Zealand with a few exceptions from Australia and Europe. “The quality of New Zealand made is exceptional, and we find our clients are very happy to pay for a beautifully made New Zealand garment.” Magazine Clothing also has its own label, Magazine, where they work with local designers to create many exclusive styles including High Society, Judith Ann Ford, Jellicoe, Euphoria, Cotura, Lemon Tree, Bittermon, and Classic Group.
Their passionate staff, clothing catering for all sizes (10-26) and ages, and their extensive clothing offering from casual to special occasion is what separates Magazine Clothing from its competitors. They also offer a complimentary style consultation service to ensure their customers are making the right choice, for their individual look and lifestyle. Each staff member has an expert eye for fashion and interprets consumers’ needs and requirements while developing a unique look.
