Meet Claudia, Billini Shoes
1. What do you love about our local community?
What we love the most about our local community is how friendly and kind our customers are. Sometimes we’ll have conversations with them, and it feels like we have known them for ages.
2. What products, services or experiences do you offer?
Established in 2009, Billini is a quick-to-market, fashion footwear destination that provides a range of styles at accessible price points. The Billini brand encompasses all things sexy, feminine and on trend, and aims to provide a range of must-have sandals, heels, platforms and boots that will inject instant style into every wardrobe.
3. What do you love about your store?
Well, being female, I automatically love my store as I love the shoes we have here but more importantly, the vibe we have with our team and customers. Everyone is always bringing in a positive attitude.
4. What are some must-have items, services or experiences right now?
We are asked every day for the Milla tall boot in back croc and burgundy croc. The Peirce tall boot in the black has also been popular.
5. With regard to your store type, what are customers wanting right now?
Most of our customers are either working mums or mothers-to-be and I’ve been asked daily for flat ankle boots to wear to work or just to be comfortable walking in them whilst pregnant.
6. With regard to your store type, what new trends are you seeing?
The main footwear trends for this season are modern animal textures seen in croc, lizard and gecko finishes as well as the square toe shape for an instant outfit elevator.
