Name: Shell Bissell
Role: Store Manager
Store: Camberwell, Melbourne VIC
How long have you been with Bailey Nelson: About two-and-a-half years, I started out at Chapel Street in South Yarra with Jaz, Lawrie & Siobhan
What do you love about Bailey Nelson: I love the environment created in each store. Customers walk in and don't want to leave! The individual design of each store coupled with genuine and knowledgeable staff who really care, makes for a unique and fun shopping experience.
I love the camaraderie between the staff, we really are like a little family. I think that shows through in our work.
Favourite Frame and Why: Markova. It's simply stylish, neat, lightweight and comes out in a lot of beautiful colours.
Most Interesting Patients: I could never forget the sweetest elderly lady who was about 85 years young. She came in wanting to look just like Iris Apfel. We popped the lenses out of a sunglass frame, the Twiggy, and she wore them as clear multifocals - adorable! She rocked those frames!
Where are you from originally: Sunny Sydney ☀
Spare time: I am completely obsessed with doing custom modifications to my new Ducati Scrambler motorbike. Super excited for spring to come so I can live out all those imaginary road tips. I admit that I'm addicted to instagram and post a pic almost every day. I have a ridiculous fondness for pekking duck.
Best Melbourne Bar/Restaurant: The best thing about Melbourne is the endless options. I love finding a new place every time we venture out. Toko Japanese restaurant in Greville street has the most brilliant sushi chefs. Grab a seat up the back where you can sit right in front of them and watch them do their magic! They do a mean cocktail too.
