Two Minutes with Johanna Barclay
By Eliza Gower | Posted in Two Minutes with Tastemakers | 19 July 2011 7:34AM
Johanna Barclay is undoubtedly the most mischievous girl in Brisbane fashion. She is a booker at the prestigious model management agency, Vivien's, and can almost always be found bobbing above the crowds (sans heels), with a beaming smile, a twinkle in her eye, and a glass of champagne clutched between her long fingers. She is both party girl and laid back beach lover, shrewd business woman and loyal friend. Take a look at why we loved our two minutes with Johanna Barclay...
TUL: Describe in one sentence what exactly you do for work?
I scout for new faces, develop careers, book jobs for Queensland models and manage their International placement.
TUL: What is the most exciting part of your job?
Helping models achieve the dreams that they have, and hearing that excitement in their voice when they secure a great job.
TUL: What do you think the best thing is about living in Brisbane?
I really don’t like telling people about how cool Brisbane is, because more people will want to move here. We are awesome in everyway, except for the cost of living. Did you know that it is 25% cheaper to live in New York?? Craziness.

Acid Eyes – it would be cool to be able to cut through tough stuff.
TUL: What is your Sunday routine?
Big cook up in the morning, reading papers and playing music until a movie marathon in the afternoon. I’ve made up a game that I absolutely love playing with the Sunday Mail, you have to match the newly weds with the new born babies. Try it!

IGA Siranni’s Supermarket, Good Point Massage – Elizabeth Street, Work!

That’s hard – Can I say both? I love cooking and I love eating out! Ah, that’s a cop out – need to decide… OK – I prefer OUT.
