Fashion Q&A

When is my birthday?
June 13th

What made me become a designer?
I've always designed clothes. I was brought up in a creative household and that kind of stuff was always encouraged.
When I was 7 or 8 my mom bought me a sewing machine and sent me for a sewing course and since then I've made 2 quilts
and 2 of my own outfits and fix my clothes etc.

What's my favourite part of designing?
The creativity, and the (almost) unlimited possibilities. I like to know that I'm designing something that someone will wear and
when she wears it, she will feel beautiful.

Who is my favourite designer?
Well... Now that's a tough one. Because I've come across some great designers. So I'll give a favourite in categories
Head wear: Philip Tracey
South African Designer: Gert Johann Coetzee
Unique: Bob Mackie
Most inspired by: Sarah Burton (Alexander McQueen)

Who would I most like to dress?
Kate Middelton. Because I am naturally a very classy and elegant designer.

What is my fashion dream:
My fashion dream is to be a well worn designer. Being a designer isn't about people knowing your name, if that's what you're looking for, then go and be a singer or actor. My dream is for my outfits to be worn and for women to feel like a princess. I want my outfits to take someone's breath away.
