Interview with Jennifer Hawkins

So earlier this month I had a chat with the lovely Jennifer Hawkins as apart of our Annual Swimwear feature and discussed some of the creative sides of her own brand Cozi, and some of the finer points of this great summer season.

Earlier this month, we had a fantastic chat with the ever-lovely Jennifer Hawkins as part of our annual swimwear feature. We discussed the creative side behind her own brand, Cozi, and how to make the most of this glorious summer season.

Here are some of the highlights from our conversation:

Cozi perfectly reflects the amazing summer we’re having! How do you come up with such stunning designs?

“It’s actually quite a fun process! I’m already starting designs for next season, and I get a real buzz out of it. I usually begin by selecting fabrics. I like to feel them and see how they drape before moving on. The range always aims to be fresh, fashionable, and with a touch of sexiness. I’m so grateful that women and girls love Cozi.”

Inspiration is key for any creative endeavour. What inspires your designs in a nutshell?

Everything! Fabrics, photographs, magazines, artwork… life in general, really.

For our GCMAG Summer Look Book, we’re searching for the must-have swimwear pieces this season. Do you have any tips?

Absolutely! A floral bikini or one-piece, a touch of leopard print, and a classic black basic are always great choices.

This summer reminds us how lucky we are to live in Australia, a country with a fantastic beach culture. This theme is very present in Cozi. What would your ideal summer day look like?

Breakfast by the beach, followed by a relaxing day under an umbrella. I’d read a book, have a nap, and then take a dip in the ocean. In the evening, I’d freshen up and enjoy some cocktails with friends.”

Now for the cliché question: how do you maintain a great bikini body throughout summer, especially during the indulgent silly season?

Wave off all temptations? Where’s the fun in that? I definitely indulge a bit over Christmas. But it’s my time off, so I relax with family and friends and just enjoy life. I do have a few treats, but I also exercise daily and eat pretty healthy overall, so I don’t feel guilty.”

It was a pleasure chatting with you, Jen! We can’t wait to see Cozi’s new designs. Be sure to check out Jen’s swimwear brand, Cozi, available exclusively at Myer stores

That’s all for this edition, folks! We hope these summer tips help you make the most of the season.
