Role Description

Founded by Shona Joy Thatcher in 2000, the Shona Joy brand is powered by a passionate close-knit team, grounded by a mutual love of designing for real women, creating dresses for celebrating life in and building a business we can all be proud of.

Our collections embody a neutral colour palette and natural fabrications that signify a clear Australian identity – always with a hint of our signature 70s bohemian glamour. In remaining true to the Shona Joy aesthetic, our collections don’t generally follow the trends of the season. We don’t believe in disposable fashion, with a mission to design the pieces that will be treasured as part of your wardrobe forever – striving to create pieces that transcend any season, occasion, day or evening and look just as glamorous in heels or bare feet.
