Plus-size clothing expert Linda Savage, founder of Magazine Clothing

Linda has always had a passion for good design and an interest in the transformative power of fashion. As owner of Magazine Clothing she is absolutely in her element, helping women look and feel good about themselves. Leading up to her involvement with Magazine Clothing, Linda had various roles in the fashion industry, including clothing design and retail management.

When the opportunity to take on Magazine Clothing came up, she immediately saw the potential, and relished the idea of being in business for herself. She acquired Magazine in December 2006, and opened the Point Chevalier store in 2008.

Next to open was the Mount Eden store in May 2009, later followed by Mount Maunganui in September 2010, the Tirau store in February 2011, and the Palmerston North store in August 2012. Most recently Magazine Clothing opened in Taihape in July, Pukekohe in September 2013 and Silverdale in February 2014. The most recent store to open was in New Plymouth in March 2015.  The operation has grown from two staff to over 20, and enjoys a very loyal following of clients.

Firstly, thank you for NZ made.  Secondly, thank you for Patrice (Palmerston North). Thirdly, thank you for the fabulous clothes!  Well done "Magazine Clothing" - Jennifer

While travelling through Taihape we called again on your store to find we were served by the same delightful lady who had served us some four weeks previous....We found Simone so pleasant and helpful and her product knowledge of colours and styling very very encouraging... She is no doubt a great asset to the Taihape store...a person who will definately make us return there.... Marnie

I was in Auckland for work recently and visited the Takapuna store just to browse.  Wendy's suggestions were amazing and I had a little splurge and ended up with a beautiful outfit for my daughter's wedding and a few extra things besides! I just wish I lived in NZ! I'm not one that usually likes being helped but Wendy found things that really suited my colouring and shape and totally rejected garments that weren't quite right for me.  Nothing was too much trouble and she didn't press me to purchase anything. I am so impressed with the clothes and also with Wendy, she has taken customer service to a whole new level. -Bronwyn

I love the clothes and things but also the camaraderie, the people. They have some fabulous clothes and there's always something new and different, something to lust after, but it's the people that make it. You feel secure in there and safe. It's a unique place to go. Every time I go in there, I know there's going to be something that's totally yummy, that's going to really ping out at me. So it's a yummy place to go to feel safe and comfortable and be inspired by.

I have been invited to a function and my first thought was "what should I wear?!" but my second thought was that the [Magazine] girls at Takapuna will sort me out... they know fashion! -June

After loving so many pieces on your website, I decided to drive up to Palmerston North from Wellington and what great fun I had!  Jan was amazing, helpful but never pushy.  The shop and service were spectacular. -Lynn

The Takapuna ladies [Adele, Lois and Wendy] have been fantastic fashion stylists and advisors to me over the years, they are worth their weight in gold. -Alison

I am so impressed by Wendy [Mt Eden], she is pleasant, charming and very helpful.  Her advice, honest assessments and professional support were so appreciated - I feel lucky to have met her! -Lynne

Thank you Ali and Maria [in Mt Maunganui] for your amazing, friendly care. There truly is always something special at Magazine. -Charmaine

As a Mother of the Groom, I have been impressed by the level of service offered to me by Jan [Palmerston North].  Her honesty and helpful manner have been really appreciated. -Mary

I visited your Tirau store looking for something to wear to my daughter's wedding.  I am five-foot-nothing and have a big bust so it can be hard finding something that fits.  Erica was fantastic!  She made me feel special and was incredibly helpful, getting me to try on lots of dresses I would not have even considered; the first outfit ended up being the winner! -Carol

I want to say "THANK YOU" to Elaine [Pukekohe store] for the help and guidance with my outfit for my son's wedding.  I was so pleased I could get everything I needed at your store.  I felt great and had many compliments on my outfit.  Thank you again. - Shirley
