moochi marketing & online manager kim draper recently sat down with cleo to talk about her role in the moochi team and what she loves about her job and personal style. here's what she had to say:

what does your job entail?

i look after all the marketing activities for moochi, including our events, collection launches and PR. i am also in charge of our online channel – it’s about to get a full makeover which I am super excited about.

what is your education and career background?

i have a masters degree in commerce majoring in international business and marketing. i have always loved fashion, fabrics and clothes. maybe it’s in my blood — my mother’s maiden name is taylor and my father’s draper. i started my fashion career working in retail at Karen Walker while I studied. i think it’s important to have that retail foundation if you want to work in the fashion industry. when I finished studying I went to ruby as the sales and marketing manager, then I went to london for five years where I found a love for denim at donna ida.

what’s the best thing about your job?

it’s fast-paced, there is always something fun going on. whether it be main range, collection or dress week releases or producing a fashion show, we always have something on the go. we work with some amazing brands and people who generously give us their time and ideas to help us execute our many creative projects. i’m also extremely passionate about ecommerce and online retailing, it’s so dynamic and the results are so tangible which i love.

what would we find if we had a peek through your handbag?

a few mac lipsticks, my current favs are russian red and sheen supreme lucas papaw lip balm, my ipad, redken pillow proof, dermalogica sheer tint spf, chloe parfum, moochi cable chain necklace (just in case I need some last minute embellishment), and my dry & tea card to book in one of their signature dry styles – you always leave that place looking and feeling great.

what trends are you loving this season?

leather, layers and clashing prints plus anything in leopard print – moochi just released the ‘wild cardi’ which is my current favourite piece. i love experimenting with trends (not always successfully). street style blogs like jessie bush’s wethepeoplestyle.com always provide a great inspiration for styling.

who’s your style icon?

not really one person in particular, i love parisian style from the likes of emmanuelle alt and carine roitfeld – they always look a little bit rock’n’roll and a lot of chic. i also admire olivia palermo’s style – she always looks so polished and considered but at the same time effortlessly cool.

what advice would you give someone who’s keen to work in fashion?

you need to be willing to work hard to get what you want. if you can work in fashion retail while studying it will give you a good understanding and foundation to start your career.

what are your workplace clothing staples?

i think I’ve worn my moochi espy flats nearly every day since they arrived although I think my new moochi lethal boots will give them a run for their money through winter. my black moochi high-top skinny jeans are a staple as is my black rev blazer – you can’t go wrong!

the moochi team is made up of some amazing, talented - and not to mention well-dressed! - people. moochi people is a regular feature on the blog where we show you a behind-the-scenes look at the superstars that make up the team and take a peek inside their wardrobes to see how they style their looks from day to day. 

this week, vicki  from moochi light capsule answers a few quick questions on what she's loving right now and what her must-have moochi pieces are. 

 

my role at moochi is... the new assistant manager at light capsule in tauranga. i'm so excited about the move back home after eight years living in hamilton.

what i love about most about my job is... meeting new people and working with like minded people who are as passionate and excited about fashion as i am and who inspire me daily.

my personal style is... classic and sometimes a little extravagant! 

my all time fav moochi piece is... the cusp shirt dress. this is a classic and feminine take on a wardrobe staple. this can be fun and fashionable with a chain necklace and boot or effortlessly cool with sneakers.

this winter i can't wait to wear... i think my fall jacket will be worn daily! and later, paired with my chev heels and halt dress for a big night out.

my favourite spots to visit near moochi light capsule are... i have an obsession with chilando mexican in bayfair. it's so fresh and delicious! i also love taking time to unwind and relax at my family's farm in katikati.

at the moment i'm loving... all things M.A.C. my go-to lip colour is morange - it's my daily saviour.

this week, melissa (known to us as mel!) from moochi conservatory answers a few quick questions on what she's loving right now and what her must-have moochi pieces are. not only is mel one of our retail stars, she also interns in the marketing and online team at head office on a weekly basis and never fails to impress us with her personal style, so read carefully! 

 

my role at moochi is... i’m currently full time assistant store manager at our ponsonby store - moochi conservatory as its best known! shopping at moochi conservatory is like shopping in your own boutique moochi closet… if you love the idea of having a personal shopper or just enjoy the elegance of a more one-on-one shopping experience then moochi conservatory is for you. i also intern with the moochi marketing team on fridays, which keepe me busy with online and events… LOVE it.

what i love most about my job is... i’m not going to lie, it's the clothes! i love the moochi conservatory store in particular, especially the bespoke feeling it has inside. the values and vision moochi has is unique and is something i’m proud to be apart of. plus being involved in the marketing team as an intern has been so much fun and something I currently love.

my personal style is... to begin with, broad! if i had to put it in a sentence (which I’ve been asked to!), i would probably say 'classic' with a little 'bad-ass' snuck in when possible.

my all time favourite moochi piece is... probably the jacksonville jacket! it’s everything i like all rolled into one amazing piece... leather, peplum, zips, soft, handcrafted and limited. get in my wardrobe!

this autumn/winter i can’t wait to wear... i jumped the gun a little and wore the lead vest on a super sunny day. usually i hate cold weather but this treasure sure makes me wish for cooler days.

my favourite spots to visit near moochi conservatory are... like every good insta/pinterest/blogger-gal knows: ‘but first, coffee’. i visit bambina on ponsonby road every morning for my coffee fix and it's perfect every time. if i’m meeting friends for drinks after work, golden dawn is a winner. also, little bird is a great lunch stop spot for its amazing salads.

at the moment i’m loving... a few essentials at the moment would be my diptyque mimosa candle, dermalogica special cleansing gel, mac rebel lippy, moochi gold cable chain necklace and i’m loving listening to aloe blacc's wake me up ep while studying and blogging!

what i'm obsessed with... shoes!! i have a sick obsession and have about 80 something pairs.... if only i had more feet! being filipino i blame it on imelda marcos being a influence on me.

if i wasn’t here i would be... travelling the world with my bestie who just left for london two weeks ago!!

to me moochi is... my life! well life for the past three years! i live breathe and love moochi!

my fav piece from this season... is the rap pant!! i have two pairs and thrash them! i love that you can dress them up or down. my black pair i wear dressed up with a heel or ankle boot and charcoal pair i went more casual with converse and my piper leather jacket!

piece I am waiting for... rule wedge! can't wait to have these puppies in my collection! such a easy wedge that will go with everything! gimme gimme!

things i love... bit of a gym junkie, can't get enough exercise! wining and dining with friends, mexico is a fav of mine at the moment! my favourite make up is mac, no other brand compares!! i am such a sucker for the bright colours! i’m a regular at the nail salon, getting crazy new prints and colours every couple of weeks!

ayla xx
