New labels shop a win-win for fashionistas and people with a disability

22 June 2015

Endeavour Foundation is proud to announce the opening of a labels boutique in Brisbane’s trendy riverside suburb of Balmoral selling international labels at irresistible prices and unique artworks created by talented artists with a disability.

Located at 204 Riding Road ‘The Labels Shop by Endeavour Foundation’ stocks an ever- changing selection of international fashion brands ranging from sophisticated looks to more casual styles. The store is currently stocking Massimo Dutti, Bershka, Pull&Bear, Stradivarius, Oysho, Uterqüe and more.

Building on a 50-year following among lovers of preloved fashion, The Labels Shop is a new contemporary retail concept for Endeavour Foundation, offering brand new (not preloved) quality labels for irresistible prices.

Our buyers search the globe for exciting fashion, shoes and accessories which are then sold at incredibly discounted prices. The complementary pairing of international labels and creative artworks offers a unique experience for Brisbane fashionistas. Endeavour Foundation Executive General Manager of Supporter Enterprises Leanne Ferris said there was always something new to discover in-store, with stock arriving daily.

“Feedback from customers during our first week has been very positive and we hope that with the support of the local community, The Labels Shop by Endeavour Foundation will become a much-loved addition to the Balmoral shopping scene,” Ms Ferris said.

“Best of all, store profits support people with a disability to have the choices of an ordinary life – to do the kinds of things that you or I might take for granted,” Ms Ferris concluded.

The Labels Shop also sells a unique range of artworks created by talented artists with a disability employed at Endeavour Foundation’s QArt Studio based in Kew, Melbourne. These original artworks and prints, designer home wares, ceramics, jewellery, greeting cards and gifts – in many different styles - are available in Queensland for the first time at the new store in Balmoral.

The Labels Shop by Endeavour Foundation is open weekdays 8.30am to 4.30pm, Saturday 9.00am to 4.00pm and Sunday 9.30am to 2.00pm.
