Popular fashion boutique Molly & Rose Fashion Haus has opened a new store, making a move from the Redcliffe waterfront.
It opened on November 11 at 26 Ashmole Rd, Redcliffe, giving owner Lisa Jones an opportunity to focus on her passion – high-end fashion.
“People ask me what the new shop looks like and I say it’s like David Bowie and Madonna had a baby,” she says.
“It’s over the top. My passion is to dress women.”
She says customers can now come into the store, which has a more exclusive, intimate and relaxed vibe, enjoy a glass of wine and be styled.
“I’m really excited about the new store. It was time,” Lisa says.
It is positioned in a stand-alone building with plenty of parking and a massive changeroom at the back.
“When people come in, their friends and family can sit on the lounge while they are being styled,” Lisa explains.
She says when women are trying on high-end pieces, they don’t want to be knocking elbows with other women.
“I’ve had a beautiful reaction because it’s the clients that appreciate the fashion that we’re offering,” Lisa says.
There is already interest from customers from across South East Queensland, with one customer travelling from the Sunshine coast to Redcliffe to try on a top she saw on the website.
“The reception has been amazing,” Lisa says.
She is looking forward to growing the online side of her business, so Molly & Rose Fashion Haus has a presence Australia-wide.
With the new store, comes the expansion of inhouse fashion brands including Joey the Label, Fate + Becker, Ladli Collection, Winona, Lexi, and their own Molly Exclusives.

So, what are her plans for the next 12 months?
Lisa says she has her eye on a second location at the Sunshine Coast and hopes to replicate what she has created in Redcliffe.
“I can see myself having another two stores, but no more than that,” she explains.
Lisa is also keen to expand styling services to cater to women who don’t have time to plan a wardrobe and, for some, that even means sending garments to their homes.
“I have about 15 women we do that for at the moment,” she says.
Lisa says there is growing demand for styling services she and Melissa Taylor provide, with each offering their own flair for a particular occasion or desired look.
