meet jo-anna...

what do you do when you are not being a maiocchi model?
 i’m an underground mining engineer, but it’s the first week of a new job! chief operating officer for a canadian mining company – translating technical things for board members and senior managers. i am also mum to 2 teenage girls  and am renovating the house. i also enjoy gardening ( but don’t get to do it often enough!)
when did you buy your first maiocchi dress?
maybe 2 years ago? in that time i have changed my work wardrobe to include almost exclusively maiocchi dresses 😊 i wear a lot of maiocchi, thanks to katrina ( my co-model!) who introduced me!  I love the buy-local aspect as well as the awesome styles and prints that come up to size 16 -18.
describe yourself in 3 words…
hard-working, fun-loving and warm.
which is your fave dress from the ‘wannabee’ collection?
the don’t think twice dress in multi – it’s a winner for work travel and so flattering with the overlay.
what’s the best place or occasion you have worn a maiocchi dress?
when i was selected as QLD exceptional woman in resources in march 2018 or last women’s day when i attended a reception at QLD government house!
what would you like to see maiocchi feature on their upcoming prints? 
i love the blue dress i tagged you in earlier this week on instagram – it’s dark blue background with light blue flower and lyrebird print. the wide neck dress style is fantastic and I have never worn it when people didn’t comment on how lovely it is!
