Mara Collective: Fashion Stars Shine in Subi

When two of the most stylish luminaries in the Perth fashion world team up to bring an exciting new fashion store to Subi, you know they – and the suburb – are on a winner.

Between them, Liz Carberry and Jill Hoad – both long term Subi residents – have 80 years of experience in the Perth fashion industry.

Liz, a former model, stylist and business owner is the perfect foil for long time buddy, Gill, an accessories specialist who ran her own Clinique franchise in Subi.

They’ve now opened their boutique Mara Collective on Rokeby Road at the corner of New Arcade, promising to fill a gap in the market for curated fashion pieces while offering a styling service for customers on getting the best out of the clothes in their own wardrobes. A range of their own labels of cashmere products and kaftans will also feature in the store along with artworks by Aurelio Costarella.

Says Liz, “We’re all about long-term relationships and service over sales. We chose Subi because we both eat, live and love Subiaco. It is the focal point of our lives, lifestyles and activities. There is nowhere more community-minded than Subiaco, we can feel it re-emerging as a fashion destination in Perth and we’re thrilled to be a part of it.”

With a long bench inside the space for customers they promise that the kettle will always be on.
