About Lisa

I am a Mother of 4 and a partner of our family business, in development and construction. My favourite new role is Nana, to my beautiful 6 month old Granddaughter.

Why do you love Tengdahl?

I always have a great experience at Tengdahl. I particularly love the versatility of their separates. The beautiful designs and prints have inspired a new wardrobe for me. I now wear a lot more colour and have some great pieces on hand for travel. I have been wearing the brand for 3 years now. My first purchase was a beautiful skirt for my daughter's wedding, which is timeless and has been a very loved piece.

I help to direct an Australian company where we make customised medical garments and splints for children and adults with severe injuries and a whole range of neurological conditions such as cerebral palsy and brain injuries that affect their daily lives. Having worked in this area for almost  30 years now, I wouldn’t change a thing.

Why do you love Tengdahl? 

I have worn Tengdahl as long as I can remember ( probably 25 years I would think) , for special family occasions and work related presentations and any time I need a boost in confidence. Julie’s designs are timeless and beautiful , and come with heart and soul. I love that her work is designed and made in Brisbane, and comes about through her personal journey , with special attention to making all women feel empowered through her creativity and care.

Why do you love Tengdahl?

There are so many things I love about Tengdahl; it is sustainable, locally made, intelligently designed and timeless. I bought my first piece 15 years ago and I am still wearing it today; the quality of the fabric and workwomanship is so high, somehow it looks just as good as they day I brought it home. At work, the Tengdahl Tiffany dress is one of our uniform items.



About Gail

After working in the legal profession for the last few decades, building a wardrobe of black clothes to look professional and serious, I am now relaxing into retirement and grandmothering! I now have time to dive deeply into subjects that interest me, to read, to volunteer, and of course to travel and hang out with our children, their partners and our four grandchildren.

Why do you love Tengdahl?

I love Tengdahl because the clothes look gorgeous, are well made and use beautiful fabrics. I wander into the shop and see Julie looking amazing in her designs and am inspired to move away from my black staples into colour - gorgeous linens, silks and cashmere. I can’t recall when I first bought clothing from Tengdahl - it must have been early this century. I still have those stunning aqua linen pants  and red silk boho skirt… The clothes really endure. I also appreciate that new purchases work back with Tengdahl garments I already own so that I can make them work a few different ways.

A healthy lifestyle is important to me and I enjoy new experiences and at the same time love spending time with my families and friends.

Why do you love Tengdahl? 

I purchased my first Tengdahl garment 15 years ago after arriving home from Paris. I love the quality of the fabrics, the cut and quality of the garments.  I love that Tengdahl is a Queensland brand, produced and marketed in Brisbane. For me it is a one shop boutique where I can find an outfit for every occasion, whether weekend leisure, work, evening or travel and the style and fabrics reflect the Queensland lifestyle and weather.

I like to think of myself as a domestic Goddess (so long as someone else is cleaning my home) who loves to cook for my wonderful Husband and 3 sons.  I love great food, wine and of course French Champagne. I am an openly addicted to shoes and chocolate and love to entertain with amazing friends and have a good dance with my tambourine...Of course, all while wearing my beautiful Tengdahl collection.

Why do you love Tengdahl? 

When I think of Tengdahl I think of effortless style. When I wear Tengdahl, I feel sexy and confident.  I love the baring of a shoulder, a hint of cleavage or showing off my legs, it all feels empowering. I have been part of the Tengdahl sisterhood for more than 15 years and every time I wear a Tengdahl piece I walk with confidence.
