Target Australia set to Style the Nation with ambassador Gok Wan

Last year I had one of the best opportunities arise in my whole blogger career, and that was meeting the amazing Gok Wan in a special blogger event in Melbourne. Just speaking to this beautiful man you know he means business and certainly knows what he is talking about!! 

In an exciting Australian-first event, Target Australia together with style ambassador Gok Wan are embarking on a mission to ‘Style the Nation’, with five lucky women being given a full style makeover- a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Along with the Seven Network, Target and Gok Wan are searching for five finalists from across the country to take part in the Style the Nation competition, culminating in a major event and full length television program to be aired on Channel Seven in August.
Whilst the Target style ambassador has a long career of UK-made TV, the Style the Nation episode will be the first of its kind in Australia- filmed with Australian women for an Australian audience.
Target Managing Director Stuart Machin said it would be a truly unforgettable opportunity for the lucky winners.

So whether you are the type that just has no fashion sense what soever, or needs guidance with what to wear with you figure then this competition is for YOU (I know I am entering!!) 

“We’re really excited to offer our customers the chance to have a style and confidence makeover with our ambassador and world renowned stylist Gok Wan. I guarantee this will be a thrilling experience for the lucky winners.

“At Target, we want to help our customers look and feel great with affordable fashion, style and quality. Gok has been doing a great job telling that story to our customers over the past 12 months. The Style the Nation campaign lets us offer Gok’s expertise to customers in a more personal way,” said Mr Machin.

“Not only will this be an amazing experience for the winners, but we’ve made sure the whole of Australia can follow their progress as we Style the Nation, culminating in the August television special.”

The prize includes a Style Camp that will see Gok Wan transform the five lucky winners with a full style and confidence makeover, offering tips and tricks on how to dress for their shape and personality and will include complete skincare, hair and make up transformation from world leader in beauty L’Oréal Paris.
The five lucky winners will each receive a prize pack valued at over $20,000 each including:

I would absolutely love to be styled by Gok Wan and I will be entering this and trying my luck, as to be honest one thing I lack is a sense of fashion to suit my body and figure- I am a young Mum so a lot of pressure is on me from two directions; ladies my age and then Mums alike.
