Insider Interview: Lisa Maree


In our next Insider Interview we chat to Lisa Maree about building her eponymous designer label.

1. What’s your usual working day like?
From the moment I wake up, I'm checking emails and social media, I race to the gym, walk my dog and am on my way to the office, or to the airport by 8am. Meetings throughout a usual day, home in the evening and generally checking emails until I get to bed. Because I am currently living in Australia, with offices in Los Angeles and a global company, my day never stops!

2. What was your dream job when you were younger?

I wanted to be a Veterinarian when I was very young! I still love all animals immensely.

3. What's the best piece of career advice you've been given?

Never give up, no matter how many times you fall down.

4. What's your number one style tip?

Accessorise! I believe less is more and a simple outfit can really wow with the right shoes/bag/accessories.

5. If you weren't doing the career you are now, what do you think you would be doing?

I would definitely be a business owner, I'm not the type of woman that would be satisfied working for someone else.

6. If someone was looking for a career change into your industry, how would you propose the best way is to start?

Get experience, volunteer to get your foot in the door as an intern or anything that leads you to be in an office environment where you hope to end up. I know most business' would prefer to hire someone who they know and who has on the job experience, rather than an outsider.

7. What's the best thing about your job?


Working for myself, and being the one I have to answer to. This makes me more responsible for my actions and decisions.

8. What's the toughest part of your job?

Never stopping, I honestly do not stop working, I live and breathe it. Sometimes when I am lying in bed I actually have to get up, send an email or jot something down so I take care of it or I can't relax.

9. Most proud career moment to date?

Debuting our collection in the USA in 2009 and Net-a-Porter picking the collection up on first debut! Incredible and so exciting to be recognised by an Industry leader.

10. Where do you see yourself in 10 years time?

Creating fabulous works of wearable art that women feel absolutely amazing in!
