Exciting New Businesses open at The Landing, Queenstown
10th August 2018
Shopping hub The Landing, Queenstown is getting makeup and bling.
Two new businesses are moving into the Frankton retail complex – EVE Beauty and Vu Jewellers.
Makeup artist Genevieve Silcock moved to the resort from Auckland three years ago and established EVE Makeup Artistry as a mobile business servicing the wedding industry. With two makeup artists doing about 750 makeup services a year, the business has been running at full capacity for the past 18 months. Silcock’s looking to expand, so will open a salon at The Landing next month while continuing the mobile service.
“Opening a salon at The Landing will enables us to grow our local clientele with a much larger range of treatments on offer, from manicures and pedicures to waxing, spray tans, eyelash extensions, makeup and makeup lessons. ” There will be five staff in the salon meaning “sometime in the future I might be able to take a day off!”
Meanwhile Vu Jewellers is set to open in September, a sister company to Queenstown’s long established Goldfields Jewellers. It will feature a full jewellery workshop in-store to design, make and repair jewellery.
Business owners Anna and Trond Johansson and Claire Antill delight in taking old, unused or inherited jewellery and turning it into unique modern designs. “We specialise in everything from modern takes on classic diamond rings to contemporary wearable art.” Antill says. They’ll also offer valuations, repairs and full servicing for jewellery and watches.
