Hi Di,I'd just like to say a very BIG thank you for such a lovely shopping experience last Friday evening.I'm very happy with all of the outfits you chose for me especially the Charlie Brown top. That's my favourite! I really appreciated all of your ideas and suggestions to help me chose clothes which will work with my body shape. I feel a lot more confident to now choose outfits which will suit me, and I will be more likely to try styles which I may not have previously thought of trying.
Before heading home I called into Myer and bought the wedges that you picked out. Tristan thinks they are really cool. (You were right, he really likes the capri pants and the Charlie top also). My daughter loves those shoes too, so it looks like i might have to hide them. At work on Monday morning I was so excited to tell the ladies of my experience and one of them intends to contact you closer to the end of the year, and book a shopping experience with you as a Christmas present to herself. Thank you again Di for such an enjoyable experience.
Kind regards,WendyThursday 29 July 2010I have known and worked with Di Cant for almost 10 years and have always regarded her as a true icon in the Australian fashion industry. My earliest involvement with Di was as a major sponsor of the Australian Fashion Awards, which Di helped to create and drive as the signature fashion event in the state. Her professionalism and experience ensured the live telecasts of the Awards were seamless, entertaining and an amazing showcase for Queensland designers in particular.Most recently, Di has been involved in a fashion event created by Treasury Casino & Hotel. From the moment we decided we wanted to create a highend fashion focused event, we contacted Di and involved her from the outset. Her guidance and input has seen in IDENTITY already establishitself as a fashion event not to be missed. Di's knowledge of intricacies of the fashion industry, both here and abroad, her amazing network of contacts, her professionalism working with andrepresenting international brands, and her experience make her an invaluable element of the fashion scene and co-producer of IDENTITY.I have enjoyed working with her for many years and look forward to continuing that relationship in the future. I would thoroughly recommend Di for any project involving fashion that also requires business acumen, a professional approach, attention to detail and commitment.Yours sincerelyMichelle PillonelGeneral Manager Corporate Affairs SEQTabcorp Holdings Ltd

Hi Di,After running into you out the front of Hugo Boss on Wednesday I just thought I would drop you a line to say thank you. About 10 years ago(scary how time has flown) you gave me the opportunity to assist you with a couple of parades for Westfield. I was possibly the worst dressed person in Brisbane but you looked past that and let me help you out. That opportunity opened the doors for me to enter the fashion world and it is a world I love.My 30th birthday present was the opportunity to study a diploma of professional styling to expand my skills and I have almost finished my finalportfolio. However if you had not given me that first chance I am unsure if I would have ever ended up here. Thank you Di for that little bit of kindness you showed me I am truly grateful.Sincerely,Melinda Carey
Meeting over a cup of coffee I found Di to be confident, easy going, professional and just like shopping with your 'honest' best friend. Di and I went into a few select shops. Her quick but careful eye looked over rows of garments, within a flash she selected exactly the right item, the right colour, and the right size, and something I havent been able to do myself for some time. A very happy Susan Oslar
Hi Di I'd just like to thank you again for a fabulous shopping experience today. My husband sends a huge thank you too. He was so excited when I came home with a couple of dresses, and some totally new looks which really make me look and feel great.
Thanks again. I'll definitely be recommending this experience to everyone I know.
Regards Rachel Porter
Its hard to believe I had my first styling session with you back in 2006 when I was changing jobs and needed to update my wardrobe to be more corporate, smart and appropriate for city business attire.
I remember how excited I was after that first session and amazed at how many new looks you were able to create for me after only 3 hours together and on a limited budget.
Now three years after that first session, I still get such a buzz out of our time together and i am amazed at how you always remember what's in my wardrobe and I only need to update you on any new pieces so you can help make them work for me.
Thanks for emailing helpful fashion hints and any great specials that you know I would benefit from. I really appreciate your fashion opinion.
