Sophisticated, with a focus on silhouette

My style is best described as timeless, uncomplicated and sophisticated. Silhouette is very important to me and I have a love for simplicity and really well-cut pieces. It’s all  got to be easy to wear. My love of clothing and fabrics started at a very young age. I grew up in a very creative environment in which my mom was pursuing fashion as a career. She was, and remains, a huge influence on my work today. Hard work has paid off and I have had many career highlights, but I still get a buzz from seeing my clothing on the cover of a magazine being worn by celebs. I reckon the most stylish celebs around are Bonang Matheba and Jeannie D; internationally Miranda Kerr or Olivia Palermo, for their effortless sophistication.
