Amoena USA’s Marcie Peters: PLUS Model Magazine Interview Extra
In our October 2013 issue of PLUS Model Magazine, Amoena USA’s President and General Manager Marcie Peters introduced us to Amoena, the women’s wellness and fashion brand. That interview is on pages 71-74. She spoke about her experience in the apparel market and the flirty, fun, very tempting Fall collections available from Amoena.
Here, we extend that interview in continued support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and in celebration of all women:
What’s been the most surprising thing you’ve learned since joining the Amoena team?
MP: I truly underestimated the power of being around breast cancer survivors and how it can change your attitude and perspective in tremendously positive ways. Since it is October, and Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I have been attending many functions to support the cause recently. It has opened my eyes again that there is such a compassion for life and relationships, and the importance of just being. Being with family, being with friends, being with loved ones, and just doing things that make you happy. It’s not what you have, but who you have in your life. I knew this since I have survivors in my family, but it had been a while since they won their fight, so it is nice to be reminded to “Just BE a woman.”
Who inspires you and why?
MP: I am always inspired by my parents, they have set a great example for me to grow and learn that you can do anything you put your mind to by treating others like you want to be treated. I know that may sound cliché and canned, but I believe it. Something that really resonates with me is from a fortune cookie that I received about 5 years ago, and I still to this day have it in my wallet. It says, “You should be able to undertake and complete anything.” It has reminded me many times over that anything is possible, you just have to do it. I feel that if you don’t push yourself, you will never know what you are capable of.
Can you give us any hints about what’s coming next from Amoena?
MP: Well, I always like surprises, and hints… so, ladies: Get ready for some fabulous new bras in spring 2014 that offer solutions to the wardrobe challenges we all face. Who doesn’t want the most amazing strapless bra, or one that smoothes out your back and gives you the support you need? Plus, we will continue to deliver seductively feminine bras, super comfortable active wear, and leisure wear to help women embrace every curve, all day long.
