meet kate...

what do you do when you are not being a maiocchi model?
i’m the deputy’s general secretary of the queensland teachers union - so i’m a union leader. i am also mum to 2 teenage girls. i love to read ( when time permits ) and i also do go to the gym 2-3 days a week.
my happiest times are when i am with my family and friends - good company, love, respect and finding joy in life is just the best!

when did you buy your first maiocchi dress?
i think it was around 2014/2015 in the paddington store, my first purchase was a reversible skirt, and then i bought a dress.

describe yourself in 3 words…
kind, loyal, determined, passionate, audacious ( we all need to have the audacity to hope, love and dream don’t we! - i love this word ) radiant ( my avatar name once on X-box was radiant aunt because that’s how my nephew described me ) empathetic and i’m a nerd! ( demonstrated by my inability to choose just three words! )

which is your fave dress from the ‘wannabee’ collection?
 i love the out of the blue dress in red and sapphire and the stripes and spots dress in black - play and work I think.

what’s the best place or occasion you have worn a maiocchi dress?
our conference - oh and a girlfriends glamorous high tea/soiree for her hens do.

what would you like to see maiocchi feature on their upcoming prints? 
i love red - and i’m a big fan of the sapphire blue and green at the moment. i love my flamingos and kites and loved the lady beetles - all those happy prints are fabulous!
