Ann Thomas

AnnAnn Thomas is CEO of Image Wear and started the business in 1988.
Originally trained as a Corporate Image consultant that trained here and in the USA as well as training as a Registered Nurse. Ann has had experience in the field of dressing clients in garments to suit their figure shapes, whilst ensuring corporate image,presentation, comfort and functionality are prevelant.

Prior to training as a RN at the RAH, Ann also trained as an Enrolled Dental Nurse at the Dental School on Frome Road Adelaide.
As a Dental Nurse and then as a Registered Nurse Ann has clearly had extensive experience in most medical areas and a full empathy of clients working in these areas and their requirements. Ann is able to relate to all medical type agencies with a great understanding and compassion.

As an Image Consultant dressing individuals such as politicians and well know identities and business groups, Ann initially could not provide suitable, stylish, or continuously supplied garments from local suppliers – so she launched her own business with the aim of filling a niche in the market which was clearly missing.

This is how Image Wear was born – as a business that wanted to dress people no matter what shape or size in garments that were made beautifully with quality fabrics in a range of styles to suit all figures and age groups in Australia.
Ann has also taken great pride in employing South Australian staff since 1988, and continues to do so today.
Always available to speak to, please dont hesitate to contact Ann with any queries or even just to have a chat about your corporate wardrobe requirements.

Amy

Amy has been with Image Wear for sometime and now manages the front of house clients.

Clients that walk in the door are welcomed with a cheery smile and with the knowledge that they are in good hands and will be serviced well.  Amy has a complete understanding of the requirements and needs of all the clients at her disposal.

She is extremely conscious of those clients that may require special attention and handles them with great diplomacy and compassion.

On occasions Amy  may also visit clients in their workplaces when they have multiple staff that require fittings.  Obviously there are criteria required for her to offer this service but it is commonly used especially amongst clients with larger staff numbers that don’t have time to leave the office.

Image Wear endeavours to have a conscience when it comes to the role of social responsibility in our community.
Our most critical responsibility is to employ South Australian citizens and to provide predominately South Australian made garments to all of our clients. This is something that we are extremely proud to have provided to both the state and nationally since 1988.

As a local business we are extremely conscious of those around us that are less fortunate than us and we have tried to assist those that are not able to care for themselves and rely solely upon the kindness and donations of others in society.

hutt street centre
In 2015 we donated over 500 warm garments to the Hutt Street Centre for Men and Women in winter, hoping that they would appreciate the feeling of wearing a clean new garment as well as the warmth and caring of those in the society who feel for their circumstance. This was greatly appreciated by the centre and we received a wonderful letter of acknowledgement from them for our generosity.

In 2009 we started to work with Mission World Aid: Established in South Australia in 1992, Mission World Aid Inc. is a charitable, non profit, non-denominational Christian organisation which sends large shipping containers of relief aid and support for needy communities in developing countries. The organisation is the mercy ministry of the Australian House of Prayer for All Nations and is based in Stirling in Adelaide.

Since 1992, we have sent over 125 shipping containers of aid to 27 nations including many countries in Africa as well as Israel, Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam, PNG and the Pacific Islands. Gael Harrison is the Aid Administrator in charge of organising the aid program. MWA is staffed solely by volunteers, it has no paid staff, so most of the donations go into sending containers of aid.

Image Wear donated many sewing machines and fabrics to the organisation with the aim of females in the villages learning a trade and thus being able to provide garments not only fror their familes but for other people and therefore earning an income.
