Meet the Designer
Q & A
Why did you decide to enter Project Runway South Africa?
I entered on a whim!
Tell us about the moment you knew that you wanted to become a fashion designer?
During my last year of high school, we had to do a design project in any field that we hadn’t explored before. I chose fashion design and immediately fell in love with the idea of dressing women and designing for women.
What do you think makes you stand out from the other finalists?
My cultural diversity.
What is your favourite material to work with?
I don’t have a particular favourite. I let the fabric speak to me.
Where do you find constant inspiration?
In nature and love.
Which celebrities do you dream of dressing?
Candice Swanepoel and Charlize Theron.
