Meet The Designer

04/09/18

We sat down and quizzed the lovely Sacha Alagich, founder and designer of Escape To Paradise to find out a little bit more about her.  Here is what we came out with...


I grew up in... Beautiful Manly Beach, NSW. I have lived here all of my life and just love the lifestyle being near the beach.

One day I would love to... Be happy and fulfilled knowing that I am creating something wonderful for the world.

I am at my happiest when... It is a beautiful warm sunny day!

When I'm not working... I am exercising! I like to train every day…healthy body = healthy mind! I like to surf, run, do yoga, play tennis and swim as often as I can.

The people that I admire...There are so many amazing people in the world! I am really inspired by people who are living their dreams, aren’t afraid to giving something a go and who are giving back to society. If I had to name a famous person I admire it would have to be Richard Branson for the above listed reasons.

The best meal I've had... One that particularly stands out in my mind was when I was in Vanuatu a few years ago and I was in this tiny restaurant on the water and they cooked the BEST garlic prawns ever.  They were so good that I ordered a 2nd helping!

My favourite restaurant is... I love Thai food, so any Thai restaurant will keep me happy.

My favourite holiday destination is... Of course any tropical island would be my favourite place! If I had to name my top favourite destinations I have been to, they would have to be Bali, Japan, Fiji and the Croatian coast.

When I was growing up I wanted to... be a marine biologist!

I couldn't live without... My health.  It is so important to be healthy and to have lots of energy to get through the day. Most people don't know this about me, but I was a NSW finalist in Miss World Australia a few years ago.

My greatest achievement is... There are so many achievements I have had along this journey called life I wouldn’t know where to begin. Every day there are new achievements to be proud of no matter how big or small they are. I think this quote by Jonatan Martensson sums it up quite well “Success will never be a big step in the future, success is a small step taken just now”.

My most annoying habit is... Being too indecisive! 

In five years time I hope to be... Sitting under a palm tree.

What makes me laugh out loud is... Anything that helps me to see the lighter side of life.  I like to laugh at least once a day, it makes me feel good.

My hidden talent is... Tandem surfing.  Yes, I can do acrobatics on a surfboard!
