WHO: MARNIE GOSS
WHAT: DIRECTOR AND OWNER, FROCKSHOP.COM.AU
WHERE: BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA
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.
Breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner?
A really long dinner…
Where will you be dining?
I will be starting at Icebergs in Sydney for entrée, moving to Buddakan in New York for the main meal and off to Venice for dessert.
What music are you listening to?
In Sydney, I will be listening to something relaxing, maybe a bit of Jack Johnson. In New York, it will be St Germain and nothing in Venice. I will be walking and talking with my friends which will be all the music I need.
What are you wearing?
I will be wearing a Thread Social tulip dress with black patent Christian Louboutins. When I pop over to New York, I will be adding a pair of black opaque tights, my Camilla and Marc cream cashmere coat and a pair of black leather gloves that I bought on my last trip to New York. I never buy expensive ones because I always lose them! I will also take a pair of black flat knee high boots to change into in Venice. I can’t be climbing into those gondolas in heels!
What are you going to eat?
I will be starting with natural oysters at Icebergs served with an ice cold glass of Veuve Clicquot. I will have a window table overlooking Bondi Beach of course. I will be having dim sum at BuddakanIn New York. Their edamame dumplings and hoisin glazed pork belly are unbeatable. I will be washing this down with a bottle (greedy I know but it’s my last supper and I won’t have to worry about a hangover) of Pinot Grigio. For dessert, I will be having a gelati ice cream cone with two different flavours. Most likely mint and chocolate. I will be walking around the alleyways and canals with my friend and enjoying every last drop.
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.
