meet the model... katrina xo

at maiocchi, we're passionate about celebrating all of the fabulous women who wear our frocks, we really are very lucky to be dressing some of the most clever, fabulous and fun ladies in all of the land!

throughout this week we are introducing you to the six models from our 'winter soiree' parade.

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.

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.
