WHAT IS YOUR JOB ROLE AT NAKEDVICE?
Product Development & Marketing Assistant
WHAT DO YOU BRING TO THE OFFICE?
I bring good Spotify playlists, way too much Uber Eats and a lot of celebrity gossip.
WHAT DID YOU DO PRIOR TO NAKEDVICE?
I studied Merchandise Management at RMIT and worked casually in retail. A requirement of my studies was to get experience in the field and I interned with Nakedvice circa 2015... They have been stuck with me ever since! I've really grown with the company and it has been amazing to be with the girls from the beginning.
WHAT IS YOUR GO TO OUTFIT?
Rain, hail or shine you'll find me in a pair of high waisted vintage Levi's and a basic crop top. I tend to dress quite minimalistic but I'll always accessorise my outfits with gold bling, sunglasses and a Nakedvice belt. I'm also a big believer that shoes will make any outfit.. I love the Katya Patent or a sneaker!
WHAT DOES A DAY IN THE OFFICE LOOK LIKE FOR YOU?
No two days are the same at NV HQ! I might be on location with Sarah shooting content for social media one day and the next I'll be in the office with Jessie working on production. I'm really lucky to be able to work on two different sides of the business and constantly be challenged. It's a dream job!
TO DATE, WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PIECE THAT YOU HAVE DESIGNED?
My first design trip overseas we designed the Oskar Backpack, in a sentimental way that would have to be my favourite piece... I wear mine everyday!
FAVOURITE INSTAGRAM ACCOUNTS TO FOLLOW?
WHERE IS YOUR #1 TRAVEL DESTINATION?
I'm currently planning a European summer and I'm so excited to visit Cappadocia in Turkey, Marrakesh in Morocco and Lefkada in Greece. However they're all places that I haven't been to (yet). A location that I can give the tick of approval to is Tulum in Mexico! The beaches are super dreamy and the food is amazing.
TELL US, WHAT HAS BEEN THE BIGGEST PINCH YOURSELF MOMENT AT NAKEDVICE?
We work in such a fast paced environment that we often don't stop to acknowledge how much we've achieved day to day - it's so nice to reflect because the girls have achieved so much. I had to pinch myself when I saw our Nakedvice designs in Myer stores for the first time. I have been with the girls through the highs and lows and I think that this was definitely one of their biggest highs to date. I've grown up shopping in Myer so it was quite surreal to see designs I've personally worked on in an Australian leading retailer.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL STYLE?
Minimal but edgy, slightly tom-boyish... Always saved by a belt.
BEST PIECE OF ADVICE TO GIVE SOMEONE WHO IS TRYING TO START OUT IN THE FASHION INDUSTRY?
Hustle, don't be afraid to ask questions, be yourself, hustle some more, voice your opinion, network and even more hustle. This industry isn't (always) like Devil Wears Prada.. Be prepared to work hard, but also be prepared for a bunch of rewards. They aren't lying when they say it's a small industry, so ensure you treat everyone with kindness. Don't be disheartened if you have to start from the bottom, with hard work you'll climb your way up the ranks and get to where you want to be! Overall, you just need to put yourself out there and get out of your comfort zone... It's certainly worth it.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT NAKEDVICE?
As a brand, I love that Nakedvice has something for everyone, it's affordable but always on trend and it has a clear aesthetic. As a job, I love that Nakedvice is a small business with such a strong team, we all work together collectively and it's such an amazing environment.
