The Cheeky Ladies

Michele Bilsborrow
Founder, Owner & CEO of Cheeky Coutures Boutique

For this Cheeky gal it has always been fashion!

From a very young age she was the go-to girl for finding the perfect fitting pair of jeans, to dressing for that crucial career changing interview to finding the perfect dress for a special occasion. She loved every second of it but what she loved most was seeing her friends and families joy in wearing what was perfect for them with a whole new level of confidence.

As a young girl she dreamed of owning a designer denim boutique called "Smarty Pants" and chuckles when she thinks back to those budding entrepreneurial aspirations. Over the years the dream evolved to bring a fresh approach to traditional Boutique shopping by empowering women through “The Art of Dressing well for their Body Type & Fashion Personality.”

These fashion methodologies have been developed by Michele over a 30 year span of working as a personal Fashion Stylist and are the heart of Cheeky Coutures Boutique. The result of infusing these proven principles & methods into the Boutique environment is a no nonsense, simple but very effective approach that gives women the knowledge & tools they need to dress for who they are, their lifestyle and take their power back. When armed with this information a gals closet becomes much less hostile. She no longer stands in front of her wardrobe wondering how is it possible that she has nothing to wear. There are no more feelings of defeat, or worse yet, feelings of less than. What she will be is empowered with a whole new level of confidence that will shine through in all she does. After all, “When we Look Good we Feel Good & when we Feel Good, we do Life Better.”

She has recently developed a course teaching other Retailers and their staff "The Art of Dressing well for your Body Type & Fashion Personality" & enjoys public speaking on the very topic, sharing her love of "Empowering Women through Fashion.”
