Consumer is BBRC’s past, present and future.

BBRC was established with the opening of a single record store in 1980 and since then has created, grown and invested in consumer businesses spanning the lingerie, fashion jewelry, leisure, homewares, and footwear categories. We are always looking for new opportunities to apply our expertise to growing consumer concepts.


Lovisa is a fast-fashion specialty jewelry retailer targeting fashion conscious females aged 25-45. BBRC created the Lovisa concept in partnership with MD Shane Fallscheer in 2010. The portfolio has grown rapidly to now include over 300 stores around the world, with a Northern Hemisphere rollout underway. Lovisa listed on the ASX in 2014 and BBRC retained a significant shareholding in the business. Visit the website
