Marnie Goss

WHO: MARNIE GOSS
WHAT: DIRECTOR AND OWNER, FROCKSHOP.COM.AU
WHERE: BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA
VISIT:
www.frockshop.com.au

FFF LOVES… her super-stylish eye for picking exactly what every Fatale is dying to wear. Plus 24/7 shopping is simply to-die-for.

What are your staples?
Kain tees, J Brand jeans, Cable cashmere knits and A.L.C. black slouchy pants. They are all high quality, basic items that I will have for a very long time. 

What are you indulgences?
My Balmain for Giuseppe Zanotti military boots. They aren’t the most practical purchase. As the military trend won’t be around forever but they were too good to pass up!

What can’t you live without?
Smythe blazers as they come in the most beautiful cuts and fabrics and go with everything. I also can’t live without Zimmermann Swimwear. Summer would not be the same without their gorgeous bikinis.

What is past its use-by-date?
My flat knee high boots. We have had some great times, but it is time to say goodbye.

What is your wardrobe craving?
The new season collection from Camilla and Marc, especially their new jewellery range. It is also in desperate need of the beautiful slouchy blazers from Ellery.

About Marnie Goss:
Fashion entrepreneur Marnie Goss is no stranger to high end fashion - after finishing two degrees in Communications (PR) and Business (Marketing) at university, she packed up and shipped off to the shores of the United Kingdom where she developed a love for online shopping and international fashion labels, and worked with renowned brands such as Krug champagne and Versace. After a career high as a publicist for Louis Vuitton, Marnie returned to her home shores and quickly identified a gap in the market for a luxury fashion website – and Frockshop was born.  She’s certainly on the road to success – with 10,000 hits a day to the website, a rapidly expanding client base boasting about 50 exclusive labels from Australia and further ashore including Antipodium, Josh Goot, Zimmerman, Ginger & Smart, Camilla & Marc, Lisa Ho, J Brand, and CC Skye, and a loyal customer base placing orders every season, frockshop.com.au is the online destination of choice for Australia’s label-lovers. A self-confessed workaholic, Marnie admits that working for herself is the biggest motivator, and it only takes the click of a mouse to prove her hard work has most definitely paid off.
