General Manager To Bershka Oxford Circus Emese Ferenczy Speaks To The Fashion Police In London Town

General Manager to Bershka Oxford Street Ms Emese Ferenczy
1)Please tell us who you are and what you do for those not familiar with you?
Hello Fashion Police:-) my name is Emese, and i'm the store manager for Bershka at Oxford street.I'm working with the company over 8 years now....I started here as a sales assistant in 2005 when the first Bershka opened in London.
Actually this was my first job, and at the moment the last:-)

2)What 3 words best describe you as a person?
realible,organized and i also feel, i'm a very lucky person.
3)Describe your Fashion Sense?'really's a kind of mixed.After 8 years in Bershka, where you have to wear only the company clothes 5 days a week, not easy to tell. (Imagine how much clothes i have from Bershka:-))But i like to look feminine, even if I go to the gym:-)
And I feel I like to dress comfortable even if I go out.I think this is very important.If you feel comfortable what you wear,- ( doesn't mean it can't be sexy) -you will feel more confident. (For example, I wouldn't wear a very high platform shoes, just because it's fashion, and after an hour ,walk like an ostrich,or bare foot , like many girls do.
4)Do you think your a true representation of a today's woman if yes/no why? would you describe the today's women?! Honestly, I don't really know.
Most of my friends, and schoolmates are mothers already, and I just got married about 3 month ago. And to be honest I still feel I'm a child to have babys:-)...and actually I'm really not!!!:-(
I feel I can stand on my own feet. In my career what  I achived so far, I did it on my own.
5)If you was to walk the red carpet which designer would you wear and why?
I think I would chose Valentino or Anthony Vacarrello(i loved JLo's look recently in his dress) .But nowadays I really like Michael Kors.
6)Tell us all about your role as a manager for and how you manage your timing with your personal life?
I have about 45 people to manage, and also thousands of customers every day.But I feel i have a very good team now, which make my work easyer.
Use to i did so much overtime.I went earlyer to work, and stayed hours longer to get things done.But since i found the love of my life:-), i want to spend with him as much time as possible.I know that work is important, but you can't forget the people around you. I don't like to bring work  home.If I'm off, I want to be 100% off, and concentrate on other things.
What I always say, you will know how good manager you are, when you are not in the store. If it's runs without you smoothly, you will know you have a well trained team, and you will have even less to do:-)
7)What makes a good worker at your store?
Good image, friendly look,realible, energetic, and independent. I like when someone knows what he/she has to do without me saying it.
Mr/Ms Ferenczy makes amazing models as well
8)What are 4 things men do that makes you mad?
Hmm, i really have to think...I would say I don't like when they can't make decisions, and they ask you "where do you want to go, what would you like to do, we can do what you want"I like when they use their imagination and surprise me.
I don't like if they love themselves, and talking about themselves too much, and If they spend more time in the bathroom than I do.
If they are leaving their dirty things around the house.
Thanks God my husband only do the last one:-) But I always think, I shouldn' be mad at him leaving his dirty socks everywhere, as I know I would miss it if I wouldn't have him anymore...
9)If you was given 2 tickets to fly any where in the world where would you go and why?
Definitely Seychelles! That's my dream right now, and actually i'm already looking the travel websites:-) I 'm planning my honeymoon there.
10)If the Fashion Police was to have dinner at your home what would you prepare them?
I think i would do some kind of soup (i started to try to cook some recently) and than i would ask my husband to do my favourite chiken with honey-garlic-and camambert:-) would love it as well:-)
11)When not running your busy store on oxford street what do you enjoy doing when your free?
Travel!!! If i have minimum 3 days off together, i never stay at home.I book a cheap trip somewhere in Europe. Also on my holidays, I never stay in the country. I love to see other parts of the World.We live once, and I think it's a good thing to know and see how is the life in the other side of the world. This experience what never nobody can take away from me.
On my days off i just rest,and usually going to my pole dance class:-).sometimes  we go out to have a dinner, or cinema with friends.But nothing special.
12)What advice do you have for anyone looking to walk into your footsteps?
Work hard, to listen the others (important to have good people skills)and be patient...Some people running away from really good opportunities because they can't wait.
13)What perfume are you wearing as we speak?
14)Where do you see yourself in 7 years time?
I hope I will be a mother of two:-) I can see myself working in our headoffice. If I could chose preferably in the recruitment center, or as an Hr manager. But definitely after 7 years I would need to slow down....
15)What music would have you running on the dance floor to shake your booty?
When I'm out I like the songs what is on the charts.You know, the popular ones, what everyone knows.  Or I like the 80's 90's partys as well. That can be so funny.
16) Describe what true beauty is in your own words?
True beauty definitely starts from inside.You can be the most beautiful person outside,but have a horrible, or boring personality.That can completely destroy the outer beauty.
17)Plus size women can they also shop at your store if not what is being done to change that?
Use to we only went up to Large, and size 12.But now we have size Xl, and size 16. 
18)What are you thoughts on plus size models?
We need them for sure! Huge part of the population are oversized, so actually that's reality. What's really not normal in my opinion the size 0 models. Why the fashion world think they can advertise clothes better than the bigger sizes? I just don't understand. So unrealistic.
19)Tell us briefly about the indetex company which you work for?
It's actually the number 1 retailer of the World It' also own the brands like Zara , Pull and Bear, Massimo Dutti , Stradivariud, Oysho, Uterque.
Bershka is 15years old now, and has 885 stores in 64 countries around the world.
20)What makes you most happy about your job?
That I know what I'm doing at work.
And my staff. It' much easyer to work in a good and happy atmosphere.
21)If the Fashion Police was to be a fly on your bedroom wall what would they be so shocked to see?
Omg...., i think you expecting me to say something crazy.....but unfortunately I won't....... I just fell asleep sooooo quickly. Every night we watch series, but me I usually fall asleep at the "what's happened in the previous episode"part:-) So really, you would see me sleeping...,
22)What would you say is your best assets?
I would say my height.I like to be tall, I like my long legs:-)
23)Any Last words for our many blog readers world
Well, I would like to say something to You Catwalk Professor:-)
Thanks for this opportunity, I feel really honored that you interviewed me. Honestly, I was really surprised when u asked me. Thank You!
"Now let me see you walk":-)
