Zara is a sought after, respected and well recognised entrepreneur, stylist, event manager and creative consultant. Zara began her career in-house, working for iconic Australian fashion label Scanlan Theodore for 5 years in Perth, opening their first WA store and turning it into one of the highest grossing stores nationally. Zara was the youngest person in the company’s history to be appointed as a retail manager and was later also dispatched to spearhead the opening of the company’s first Brisbane outpost.
After completing tertiary studies in Frontline Management, Marketing and Arts Management, Zara took out the Channel (V) V RAW competition and completed work placement at Sydney’s famed Premier Harbour Agency. Upon returning to Perth she worked in-house as a graduate intern for Universal Music Australia. Zara then moved into the corporate world and for the next few years worked in some of Perth’s premier advertising agencies, excelling in the client services area on high profile brands including GESB, Dale Alcock Homes, BGC and the Perth International Arts Festival.
In 2012, Zara won Perth Retailer of the Year at the WA Fashion Awards for her unique retail concept Zara Bryson Shop, which launched in 2009 and had popular fashion destinations in Subiaco, Claremont Quarter, 140 Perth and online.
Zara co-founded The Peach & Pineapple Co with Caitlin in 2012 and continues to be in demand as a stylist and creative consultant for brands including: Disney Australia, Chanel, West Weekend magazine, The Sunday Times STM magazine, South Australian Style Magazine, Solid Gold Diamonds, Telstra Perth Fashion Festival, Bowie Wong, Betts Shoes, Airflex, Betts Kids, L’Oreal Professionnel, Carillon City, enex100, Wesfarmers, Rosendorff, Target, Kmart, Workwear Group, Perth Symphony Orchestra, Patricia Field for enex, Reno’s Hair Care, Mirvac, Adrian Zorzi, Sweetwater Rooftop Bar, The Cottesloe Beach Hotel, Empire Rose, Port A Vie and The Mangrove Hotel. In 2018 Zara learnt to DJ, a long held bucket list item, and after six months of lessons she debuted at the prestigious Art Ball.
Sydneysider turned Perthite, Angelique joined the Peach and Pineapple team last year, having crossed the Nullarbor in 2018.
With a strong background in consumer PR, Angelique has worked with giants such as McDonald’s, Campari and Virgin Mobile. Whilst working with these brands she accumulated a wealth of industry knowledge and thrives on seeing a campaign go from start to finish.
Prior to her career in public relations she was known to dabble in make-up artistry, so you might find her lurking around Mecca Cosmetics or Mac store from time to time.
Having attended two different performing arts schools growing up, she’s a lover of all things theatre and dance and if she wasn’t too busy zipping around for all her clients she may well have been a dancer in the Australian Ballet.
Given her childhood predilection for playing dress ups, spinning tall tales and bossing around her peers, it was a natural progression for Emma to find a career as a stylist, journalist and event planner. Having launched her fashion blog Dropstitch in 2007, Emma was a pioneer of the digital fashion scene in Perth, with her street style photography featured regularly in international publications.
Her creative eye developed further during five years as the Arts and Fashion Editor at X-Press Magazine, where she was introduced to the joys of editorial styling. Emma has since worked freelance, utilising her wide range of skills in creative direction, project management, public relations, journalism, copy writing and styling, for clients including 20th Century Fox International, Betts Shoes, Telstra Perth Fashion Festival, the City of Joondalup and most recently as a freelance entertainment reporter and stylist for The West Australian.
Lauren has accumulated over 10 years experience working in marketing, promotion and events for some of WA’s most recognisable brands.

In 2008 Lauren accepted a role at the West Coast Eagles football club, where she worked for over 5 years in the Membership & Merchandise department overseeing their events, marketing and promotional activity.
Searching for experience in a different industry, Lauren took on the role as Brand & Marketing Manager for the national fashion footwear retailer Betts Group. This position unearthed Lauren’s passion as a producer and led her to co produce one of Betts most successful campaigns shot on location in Bali.
Over her career Lauren has also completed courses in Visual Merchandising, Graphic Design, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign and Adobe Illustrator.
In her spare time Lauren loves to express her creativity through floral design, co founding Blossom & Bloom, a small business specialising in wedding and event floristry.
