meet katrina...

what do you do when you are not being a maiocchi model?
i’m an underground hard rock mining engineer. (think gold, copper, diamonds etc) working for rio tinto in our global underground mining team. i am mum to 2 girls, and when I’m not working,  enjoy reading, “bookclub” and other fun with my girlfriends,  travelling, family bike rides and occasionally sewing. 
 
when did you buy your first maiocchi dress?
when we moved from mongolia to brisbane five years ago and lived just down the road from the paddington boutique. 
 
describe yourself in 3 words…
creative, friendly and adventurous.
 
which is your fave dress from the ‘wannabee’ collection?
i love the orchid road dress in either navy or jade, and also have the same print in a wiggle skirt which is currently on high rotation in my wardrobe. 
 
what’s the best place or occasion you have worn a maiocchi dress?
my good friend’s wedding in fremantle, WA was the best special occasion, but for me the best place is being able to wear these beautiful dresses to my work every day and getting to enjoy their colours and cut. 
 
what would you like to see maiocchi feature on their upcoming prints? 
keep surprising us with your great ideas, i love them all from the colourful lanterns, to native flowers, bees, umbrellas, the surprises of each collection keeps me intrigued and coming back every season.
