So, who am I?

Well, i'm Jo.
I am a Bendigo local (and have been here 30 years).

I love our town.
The people. The culture.
The coffee (and food).
The community feel.
It has everything that I (and my family) need.

I am a nurse and heavily involved in Equestrian.

I am a busy Mum of daughters.

I love fashion
(even though i'm normally dressed in activewear)
and participate when I can in Fashions On The Field.

I pride myself on being approachable, and honest (if it doesn't look great, I won't tell you it does)!

So, why dress hire?


Just like all of you. I had so many dresses that has been worn once, hung up, never to be worn again.

I couldn't sell them for anything near what paid (and they did look pretty hanging up).

I also found it so hard to find good, well-fitting dresses in Bendigo.

So ....
(with the little spare time I had)
No Strings Dress Hire was born.

What I love about it....

This question is EASY!
Dressing real people, in gorgeous dresses, making them feel beautiful - makes my day.

Helping people step outside of their comfort zone with fashion and trying new things - gets me excited!

There is also no better feeling than when someone comes in that 'just can't find anything for their body' but leaves glowing and confident - ready for their event.

I also love looking at the rainbow of 200+ dresses hanging up in my space.
