meet our model employee... cathy xo

 we thought we'd introduce you to some of the fabulous women who make maiocchi happen.. meet CATHIE - dee says she is the 'real' boss at maiocchi as she pretty much runs the whole show at maiocchi HQ!

we asked her all the difficult questions, and here's what she had to say...

what did you want to be when you grew up? 

originally i wanted to work into the banking industry, but i soon realised that this would be too repetitive and not creative enough.

i wanted to learn and gain as many opportunities as possible, which led me to the fashion industry by accidentally falling into this field.

i quickly realised i love the vibe of the industry and this is the reason i am still doing it today.

how long have you been a maiocchi girl?

2 years

what is your role at maiocchi?

operations manager at head office.

what is your favourite thing about being part of the maiocchi family?

i really enjoy being part of a small family business, as you feel connected to how it all began.

it is inspiring to see the designs and the collaboration of prints with local artists from brisbane.

what led you to maiocchi career or study wise? 

i have worked in the fashion industry for over 30 years, many of those years were in sydney.

moving to brisbane and discovering the maiocchi brand, lead me to my position and working closely with dee.

what do you get up to when you’re not being a maiocchi girl?

spending time with family & friends and getting away on holidays.



what’s your favourite piece from the ‘pretty please’ collection?

i love the 'crowd pleaser' jumpsuit... the prints and fit of this style just flows on many different body shapes and is just right for this season.

what's your secret style tip?

a pedicure and fun sparkly sandals is all you need for spring / summer.

what's your fave place to eat in brissie?

the new precinct at howard smith wharfs has many great places to eat.

ps: cathy is wearing the 'crowd pleaser' top in the black print xo

When you are measuring yourself if possible do so in front of the mirror to ensure the tape measure is horizontally positioned around your body.

Hold the tape measure close against your body but not too tight

Tip: always wear the underwear you plan to wear with the garment

measure the fullest part of your bust ensuring the tape measure is even and horizontal at the back.

your waist is the smallest part of your torso; it is usually a few centimetres above your belly button. Wrap the tape measure around your waist, ensuring it is comfortable but not loose.

this measurement is taken at the widest part of your body. measure around the fullest part of your bottom or at the top of your thighs, which ever is widest. Make sure the tape measure is even and horizontal at the back.
