What do you do?
Owner/ Manager of 'Josie Bird' fashion and co-owner of 'The Travelling Kimono'.
Why do you do it?
I love fashion and saw not many shops targeting for the correct market here on the Sunshine Coast, so I made my own.
What do you love about the city you live in?
Beach… the sunrises… the laid back lifestyle.
Where did you go for your last holiday?
Thailand and Vietnam, amazing!
What's your favourite item of clothing? Why?
KIMONOS- they are so versatile, it doesn’t matter how old you are, or what size you wear, you can still wear them without feeling like you are not dressing your age. You can dress them up or down, they are so comfortable and hide all the bits we want to hide.
What was your favourite TV show when you were a kid?
If you could travel back in time for a day, where would you go?
Any Christmas day, I love when my whole family is together under one roof.
If we were coming over to your place, what would you cook for us?
A massive stir-fry with coconut rice.
What's the best lesson you've ever learned?
How to say 'no'.
Tell us one thing about yourself that nobody else knows...
I have webbed toes.
Are you happy with your work/life balance?
It could be better – but I am taking steps to ensure I obtain that balance again.
How do you define success?
I used to define success by how much money you make but I have learnt to define my own success now by how much I love what I do and what qualities I have learnt along the way.
What's your spirit animal?
An owl – I have the key to my own wisdom.
