The Super Styler

7

Founded by passionate Melbournian Nadia Rados-Christo, The Super Styler is an innovative event planning and styling studio that caters to weddings, corporate events, and more! Here we chat to the talented woman behind the business, and take a unique look behind the scenes as she shares her journey.

What’s the inspiration behind The Super Styler?
For me, it was a series of things that compelled me to start my own business, but I always knew it was something I definitely wanted to do. It takes more than a single moment to give someone the encouragement to venture out on their own. I have heard of so many inspiring stories of young entrepreneurs starting successful businesses; all it takes is determination and passion to get things rolling.
I have always loved attending and planning events, especially weddings, and for as long as I can remember, I’ve been the “go to” person for planning and styling advice for friends and family’s birthdays, weddings and special occasions. I enjoy the process so much that it made me realise this is what I wanted to do. With the love and support of my closest family and friends, I decided to make my dream a reality and began the quest in bringing The Super Styler to life.

How did you go about starting it up?
My husband was the first person I told about my business aspiration; he gave me all the moral support and encouragement that I needed to get me moving. I had a substantial amount of experience with planning and styling events and years of experience in the corporate sector, however launching a business in such a competitive industry was something I didn’t know too well. I did lots of research and advertised in all the right places until eventually things started to happen for me.

It was most certainly a family affair, with my husband, father, mother, sister, aunt and close friends all putting in their bit to make it work, which I will forever be grateful for. The entire process from coming up with my business name to preparing for photo-shoots made me really excited about the future. I know that I have made the right decision, and this is exactly what I want to be doing. Planning and styling weddings in particular are my absolute favourite!

What makes your business unique?
I run a small business and I like to pride myself on quality over quantity. I focus on creating lasting relationships with my clients and make a conscious effort in responding to every single enquiry that knocks on my door, no matter how big or small. I take the time to get to know our clients so I can design and create something truly magical for them that captures and reflects who they are.
Oh and who can resist my little mascot Jaspa (my dog)! He helps calm any wedding jitters and loves a good cuddle, but only if traded with a treat or two!

What does a typical day look like for you?
I have a diary full of daily to-dos—it just seems to work best for me. If I am not meeting with clients, I am often at markets sourcing new props for an upcoming wedding or event. I am always on the phone, talking to suppliers and getting things organised for the weekend ahead. To end my day, I like to exercise—it’s the only time that I can relax and recalibrate for the new dawn.

What’s your favourite thing about working with couples?
Seeing how happy they are with the end product would have to be my favourite thing about working with couples. When you hear things like, “I don’t know what we would have done without you” really reiterates why I love what I do so much. It makes the super early mornings and sleepless nights of worrying about the weather, or if the hydrangea is going to be the right shade of pink, really worthwhile.

What does marriage mean to you?
For me it’s the union of two people, who are in love, living a crazy beautiful life with one another, learning to enjoy each other’s differences and the simple things in life.
Dr. Suess explains it perfectly for me, “We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”
