Marty Powell

Marty Powell is the Store Manager of Adelaide’s Georg Jensen store at 25 Grenfell Street. The article below is an exerpt from a longer article by Cassandra Liebe on liebefashiongallery.com.

I met Marty Powell through my PR firm when Georg Jensen came on board to be the jewellery sponsor for my Oscars Party at Red Love Adelaide. On first meeting Marty I knew we were going to be fabulous friends. Today after interviewing him I just simply adore this man.

We went for a coffee and chat at Pranzo Restaurant on Exchange Place in the city. He told me it was the one place you needed to be seen at in Adelaide. Marty ordered a stiff short black, code name for a shot of coffee with something much stronger added,  a man close to my own heart but alas work was on the agenda so a cup a tea for me.

So let me tell you more about Marty, the manager of the Adelaide Georg Jensen store.

British born, Adelaide raised and Barossa living is Marty Powell and as a young fresh faced 15 year old boy, Marty’s first experience in the retail world was working in the manchester department of Myer.

“Can you imagine, I didn’t know that fashion was involved with bed linen”, he told me. “I mean really can you imagine any young man having to get his head around bedding terms such as Selvedge versus Seersucker. Not to mention that manchester in Australia has absolutely nothing to do with the soccer team in England!”

From manchester, Marty moved to writing those “blurbs” on the back of legal books for a writing firm, and then found Georg Jensen, or did Georg Jensen find Marty?
