“I started the business literally on the kitchen table in 1982, making jewellery and selling it on the streets to help pay my way through university. One day, a woman approached me on the street and asked did I wholesale? Not quite knowing what that meant I answered, yes of course! With one delivery under my belt I decided to approach a major local chain store and was shocked to receive an order on the spot for hundreds of pairs of earrings. This turned out to be the end of an arts degree and the start of a career in fashion accessories.
During the 1980s, I leased space in Fitzroy, at that time a run down area of inner Melbourne populated with alternative shops, street people and punk rockers. I started doing business with many of Australia’s major retail chains and department stores including Myer, David Jones and Sportsgirl. It was great fun, so that is what I called the business.
In the early 1990s the company was incorporated and I was joined by three new business partners: Sally Glover (a major shareholder), Genevieve Reid and Jenny Price. Together, we have turned Fun into a powerhouse in the Australian market, importing from all over the world and producing a full range of fashion products for many of this country’s top designers. In 2000, Fun was appointed Australian distributor for Monet, the world’s largest jewellery brand. We are proud to have taken this brand from obscurity to a major position in this market and in 2012 we have commenced production for this range under license, making Fun the first ever international licensee for Monet.
Thirty years on many things have changed but two constants remain: Fun is still located in Fitzroy, which has become a centre of bohemian culture, innovative young designers and trendy cafes and we are still having fun!”
