Severine Josey of Fashion Exposed

Today on BusinessChic, an office wear ensemble for the classic/creative/time-poor among us.

If you work in a less conservative environment, preferably one that’s creative or where shorter skirts do not present an issue, take inspiration from Business Development Manager for Fashion Exposed at Informa Exhibitions, Severine Josey!

What are you working on at the moment?

Fashion Exposed – a fashion trade show that is run twice a year – with the next one just around the corner, 25th – 27th August! We are particularly excited with this show as we have a great line up of speakers including Alex Perry, VM Manager from Myer John Strickland and Grand Social CEO Jean Claude Abouchar.

Favourite stores/brands for work wear?

I recently went back home (London) and had a little-ish shopping spree, so I have a good mix of Aussie and UK labels.

My Aussie go to work brands at the moment are Country Road and Saba, great for classic tailoring with a modern twist. And my UK brands are (actually there’s only one!) is Reiss. I LOVE Reiss, so well made and never fail to deliver amazing collections each season. Fave shoe shops are Zomp and Acne.

Favourite quote?

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”

– William Purkey.

How do you relax after a long day at work?

Walking home with my girlfriend putting the world to rights! There is nothing better than fresh air and exercise to make you feel better, and less of a desk monkey!

Favorite skin care/cosmetics for the office?

I don’t wear much make up at all. Never worn foundation so I just wear Body Shops Vitamine E moisture cream,  a little bronzer (MAC Mineralize) , Bobbi Brown (pot rouge) for a little blush, and Christian Dior (Diorshow) mascara, and that’s it. I’m a hand cream addict so I have Norwegian Formula hand cream on my desk, and Kiehl’s (Ultimate strength hand salve) in my bag! And I can’t live without my Carmex for my lips.
