Our Story

Who we are

Stylestarter was founded in 2016 to serve the needs of the stylish and intelligent woman, we've all asked the question "why pay so much for one night?". Stylestarter answers this by providing women the alternative to hire high quality and unique garments for any occasion.

From small beginnings at our first store in Takapuna, Stylestarter has continued to grow, having spent five years at our original Newmarket store, in March 2024 we transitioned to a newer space in the same area - Stylestarter is powered by a small close-knit team. 

We pride ourselves on our one-of-a-kind customer service and genuine styling advice. It is our goal to have everybody leave's our store feeling valued and confident.
Stylestarter caters sizes 6-18, we have something to suit everyone and all occasions. If we don't have what you're after, let us know.

Our vision 

We will continuously source one-of-a-kind, high quality designer garments from around the world. Stylestarter will live up to our name in taking delight in providing a stunning range while offering exceptional service.

We exist because we believe that event wear is about accessibility and experiencing an amazing garment shouldn't come down to owning it or at the cost of the environment.
