International Women’s Day | Q&A with our hero

International Women’s Day | Q&A with our hero

Meet Amelia, our fearless leader who brought Havaianas to Australian shores 21 years ago. We are celebrating International Women’s Day by shining a spotlight on the amazing woman who founded Aqueo Import and Distribution (the official importer and distributor of Havaianas in Australia). Havaianas were birthed in Brazil in 1962, but we can thank the presence of the brand in Australia to one inspiring woman, Amelia Maribondo-Aspden. We admire her accomplishments and are excited to share her success story. Read on for a Q&A with Amelia. Question 1: Tell us about your Havaianas journey. [ Smiles ] Wow. Okay, this is a long story… how can I tell this story in two minutes… When I first arrived in Australia in the 90’s [ originally Amelia is from Brazil ], I didn’t have a job or any qualifications. I borrowed some money from a friend and decided that I wanted to start my own business. I tried a few things and eventually landed on importing bikinis from Brazil to se

How did you become an artist and what was the journey like to where you are now? That's a big question and one I could go on about for awhile so here is the short version. I always loved drawing but never thought it could be something that I could make a living from, so after school I went to uni and got a Bachelor of Economics and then worked in the finance industry for ten years. Then I got over it and decided to have a bit more of a go at being an artist. I started drawing every night and then put my art up on a blog and then that led to the chance to have an art show in small local gallery in my neighbourhood. I then made tees and started going to Bondi markets every Sunday selling tees and art prints and stuff, and after doing that for 2 years whilst still having my full time finance job I was a
