Australia-based retailer Billy J is known for selling trendy clothing, accessories, and shoes to women all over the world. Here, NetInfluencer takes a deeper dive into the Billy J influencer program.
CEO Leanne Hancey started Billy J Boutique in 2014 on Australia’s Sunshine Coast. Leanne originally ran the company out of her home, but moved operations to a warehouse in 2018. The company is named after Leanne’s son, Billy, and she began the company as a way to stay busy and make money as a new mom.
Today, Billy J is a multi-million dollar company and has 75 employees. In 2020, the brand opened its first flagship store at Kawana and in 2023, there are plans to move to an even larger warehouse. The company ships both locally and to international customers and is one of Australia’s largest online clothing retailers for women.
Who Are the Billy J Influencers and What Do They Do?
Billy J does not have a formal influencer program. Although they do reshare influencer posts and videos on social media, the brand frequently uses professional models to create their aesthetic. This reel captures “the moment v the pics” and gives a behind the scenes look into a photo shoot. The models are wearing neutral-toned looks from the Billy J Je T’aime collection.
Here, the brand teases an upcoming drop of wedding-based formal wear. The collection features several gowns and matching two piece sets.
In these photos, a model wears the Billy J Tillie Vest and Pants in the color Latte. The look is completed with a pair of black strappy high heels.
