WHY DO YOU LOVE FASHION AND WHAT TYPE OF FASHION ARE YOU KNOWN FOR?
For some people fashion is putting together cute outfits. My observation..
Fashion is an expression, it can make statements, can be controversial and also
empowering. I Love fashion simply because it’s a form of creativity and ideas.
TYPE OF FASHION AM KNOWN FOR!
The Classic style type is safe, clean and traditional. I know what works for me and I tend to stick to it. I value longevity over
trends .. ie a trust worthy look that is both timeless and flattering. Neutral colors and simply accessories.
DO YOU HAVE A ROLE MODEL?
Yes.. My mum. She’s my fashion icon!
WHO IS UR FAVORITE DESIGNER?
Locally it’s my sister (Gifted Fingers). International.. it’s Vera Wang.

WHY DO I LOVE FASHION?
I love fashion because it allows me to be whoever I want to be depending on my
mood. Fashion is an art, it allows me to display my creativeness.
WHAT KIND OF FASHION AM I KNOWN FOR?
I’m not known for a particular type of fashion, I don’t follow trends too much
because trends fade. It’s all about style, because a lot of people can put on a
bunch of designer labels and consider themselves fashionable, but look terrible
because they lack a sense of style. It’s all about the execution, hence why style is
forever. The gift of having a sense of style, is when you can make a $30 dress look like a
million dollars. My style ranges from minimalism to extreme glam. I love a
variety of looks, from polished, mixing masculine-feminine elements, exotics,
classy to elegant.
MY FASHION ICON?
My fashion icon is Anna Wintour because her influence in the fashion industry is
unmatched. She is known as the most influential fashion editor of her time. I
admire her keen eye for details. Anna has influenced everything from the creative
directors of fashion collections to even items carried by department stores. She is
also behind the success of Vogue magazine.
MY FAVORITE DESIGNER?
Calvin Klein because his dresses fit my
body, his finishing is seamless and I rarely
integrate his pieces with anything else.
Calvin Klein dresses are versatile and can
be worn to any function.
