Frangipani Living was created to give women an alternative to mainstream, mass produced fashion, yet still at an affordable price.
If you are looking for unique styles that flatter your shape but don’t shrink your wallet, you have found the right place.
Created by 2 women, a mother and daughter team, who simply love fashion. However, we could never really find what we were looking for in the big chain stores.
I’m the daughter, Tina Ramos, and I am a short, big girl. I used to have an hourglass figure but it’s losing its middle every day. I find most stores depressing, fashion trends just never seem to suit my shape.
My mum, Carmel, is AWESOME! And she wants to dress awesome! She has a great figure, and she wants to wear nice clothes and not be aged by her fashion. She looks absolutely fantastic for her age, so why shouldn’t she have fashion choices which make her look and feel good and don’t pigeonhole her or age her.


As a business, you are told you need to choose a niche, aim for a certain customer. At Frangipani Living we have something for ladies of all ages and sizes. Because we all deserve to have beautiful, affordable and unique fashion, which flatters our shape and size, but doesn't age us.
And we’ve been at this a long time.
Our bricks and mortar store has been trading in the Hunter Valley for over 13 years, and previously we were located in Lake Macquarie.
We have been nominated by our loyal customers for the Local Business Awards almost every year we have been in operation, and were lucky enough to WIN Best Fashion Store in the Hunter Region, not once, but TWICE !!!
But we’re not done yet, we still have so much more to do.
Our online store is reasonably new, but we aim to offer the same excellence in customer service that we offer in-store. We might not be able to help you with your zipper and try on your garment online, but we can still help you find the perfect, flattering style for your shape. Or assist with advice on colour, sizing, accessories, bags and shoes.
We’re here to help you find the perfect outfit. A unique, flattering, quality outfit that is affordable and timeless.
You don’t have to settle for the same old clothes, because you’ve found Frangipani Living.
