Christchurch’s Yummy Mummy Model Search
Pregoli knows it can be tough being a mum-to-be, and it certainly can be tough being a mum-to-be when living in post earthquake Christchurch! Pregoli, an online clothing maternity store, have had a Yummy Mummy model search that closed midnight 7 September. They are looking for mums-to-be to model for their Spring / Summer clothing collections.
This Yummy Mummy model search turns expectant mums into a model for the day. Angela Stone will be the stylist and will prepare them for glamorous photo shoots. Not only do the mums-to-be model for a day, they also get to take away a generous prize package worth over $500. This includes designer maternity wear, skin care products to lingerie and much more.
What is Pregoli? It is an extremely convenient maternity online shopping website. Co-founder Belinda Simôn says, “we asked the question – why give up fashion just because you’re pregnant? We found there was a gap in the market.” Therefore Pregoli is insistent that everyday mums-to-be should get a diverse range of fashionable maternity wear, fashionable children’s clothing and pregnancy related products at cost-effective prices.
Pregoli stocks top international and New Zealand made clothing brands. Their aim is to save pregnant mums time, to make shopping safe, secure, and a pleasant experience in a mums-to-be life. As a company they are committed to their customer service, to their products and are happy just to advise and suggest garments or accessories to meet each woman’s needs.
Pregoli was a finalist in the 2010 David Awards in the category ‘Most outstanding triumph over adversity’. These awards are about recognising unsung heroes in home and small businesses throughout New Zealand. Belinda knows that Yummy Mummy will bring some luxury and positivity into some expectant mums’ lives.
