FASHION FUTURE INTERVIEW QUESTIONS

Australian designer Marie Hatzis from label

HUSSY

talk of her timeless style and fashion journey.

Describe your style or collection.

The Hussy collections are always very edgy with a sophisticated sexiness about them. We are known for our prints, so I focus a lot of energy on getting the colours and prints perfect. My journey in fashion started when I was 5 years old, as our mother was a seamstress so was always playing around MUM with the sound of the old Singer humming.

From there I always had a passion for fashion and designing and making my own clothes as I always wanted something different. I was accepted into East Sydney college and started my label HUSSY straight after graduating. My parents have definitely been a huge influence, as have they taught me, that If I really wanted something I had the power to work hard and achieve it.

1.Why is it so rewarding to be a leading Fashion Designer?

There is no better feeling than seeing a gorgeous, confident woman in my creations.

2. Where do you get your inspirations from?

Inspiration comes from everywhere, from flowers, wallpaper, colours of spices and feelings. I never stop being inspired as my senses are always switched on

3.What has been your greatest achievement?

There have been a few!! However I must say opening the HUSSY store on Oxford st was def a high point

4.What has been your greatest challenge and how did you overcome it?

Giving birth to 2 children in 14 months……couldn’t have done it without my team.

5.Whose style do you most admire?

I admire people with confidence and direction

6.What changes in your business, if any, have you made to adapt to the current economic climate?

We’ve looked at our pricing structure and brought into the HUSSY product range some more accessible price points, without losing the signature HUSSY look.

7.Divulge the fashion piece that you couldn't live without?

My high end designer shoes…I can’t get enough…just indulged in a pair Nicholas Kirkwood Heel….they are divine

8.What is your worst fashion faux pas?

Id rather not go there…..it was a SCREAM!!

9.Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I see the HUSSY empire growing with another 3 signature retail stores, and relaxing more with my family

10.What advice can you offer to emerging fashion designers?

Find your forte and stick to it…..

11.Marie’s ‘HOT TIP’always go about life with a sense of humour....be true to yourself
