To you, what is a girl boss?
To us a GIRL BOSS is a young, confident woman who has the courage to start a business up for herself and kill it!

We don’ particularly think networking is vital. We think it is more about your reputation and the way you treat people because word travels fast.
How would you describe Verge Girl as a brand?
It is our never ending quest to bring the freshest trends to our girls at affordable prices. We are more than an online store, we are a style destination.
Current playlist at Verge Girl HQ?
We are loving Khalid, Jordan Rakei, Sampha and always a good mix of 60’s 70’s and 80’s classics.
Who has been a mentor throughout the VG journey?
Our biggest mentors are our parents. They are extremely supportive and have both been in business their whole lives. We come from a very creative family and have always grown up in the fashion industry. Our dad made tailored suits, did all his own pattern making and had a huge wholesale/ manufacturing company in Melbourne where we grew up and our mum was a hairdresser and made all her own clothes, they have endless wells of knowledge on clothing and business, so it is really in our blood. They have always been the ones to push us forward.
