meet the models: peta xo
we celebrated our spring collection 'pretty please' and all of the fabulous women who wear our frocks, with a little soiree in our paddington store.

we thought we'd introduce you to some of our most fabulous maiocchi ladies, who took to the catwalk as our super models for the day.

we really are very lucky to be dressing some of the most clever, fabulous and fun ladies in all of the land.
meet peta...
peta is a full time accounting professional and part time parent to two tweens.
when she's not busy with those things, she can be found planning her next holiday, usually a mini break, and drinking red wine all year around.
peta is obsessed with colour, thus her love of maiocchi frocks!

when did you buy your first maiocchi dress?
when I was at university, from the fortitude valley store.

describe yourself in 3 words…
 organised, bold and loyal.

which is your fave dress from the ‘pretty please’ collection?
as a mother of two i try hard not to pick favourites... but if I had to, the crowd pleaser dress in black - the fabric feels amazing. 

what’s the best place or occasion you have worn a maiocchi dress?
any occasion that calls for fun - love wearing my maoicchi dresses whilst having long lunches catching up with friends, or at one of the many food and wine festivals held in brisbane (last weekend at regional flavours comes to mind)

what would you like to see maiocchi feature on their upcoming prints? 
i have to admit to being a paisley tragic at this point, but really, anything fun and colourful. dee’s dresses fill me with joy.

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.
