Meet our Models

Featuring in Grand Central’s latest digital runway are local husband and wife duo Tyla and Ben Yong from Social Palms and Roger, Hayley and Scarlett Mason from Settler Hives.

Ben started his journey making fun and quirky videos, while Tyla is an online marketing ‘nerd’ who heads up an online women’s community She The Roar. They have started a new local business, Social Palms, offering social media expertise and digital content creation.

Roger and Hayley and their daughter Scarlett are the family unit behind local business Settler Hives. Inspired by their love for backyard beekeeping, the family turned to sourcing, packaging and selling seeds.


It’s time to have some fun! Try something a little different from the everyday chino’s and denim jeans that have been your winter staples and consider a cool tailored pant, a classic white tee and a pair of braces – #bestdressed

Fresh white sneakers will continue to be your friend, but for those wanting to sharpen their look, consider a boat shoe, brogue or loafer.

If you are opting for shorts, block colours are best as you can play with an array of colour and experiment with bold prints on top.

For the classically inclined, summer linens will always be a winner. Both understated and stylish, they are undoubtedly a staple for all seasons.

Remember hats and sunglasses will be your best accessory …complete with a dash of sunscreen and a side of flowers for your love #chivalryisnotdead


For the Mini’s

in your life, springtime is all about playtime so have fun with colour, and look for creative details; metallic stripes, ruffles and frills & layers of chiffon.

Find ways to add a little bit of personalised sparkle to match their personalities and don’t’ be afraid to play with unexpected combinations – think pretty in pink with a pop of leopard print…. remember springtime is playtime.
