2010 was the year that brought back the realization of life, health and true happiness. 2010 has been a year of exciting opportunities and great changes. Cape Town was my inspiration, my summer playground, and the city’s resort fever as well as the World Cup mania here has a large influence on all aspects of my designs, making each one a desirable and fun masterpiece. I’m crazy about travel and through exploring new places and experiencing different cultures my work consistently has a global edge. But, I don’t forget my local routes.
If I were to spend New Year’s in the Northern Cape town of Kakamas, I would pack a few good books, because I love to read and sunglasses because the world is prettier through them.
Nobody knows that I was a provincial athlete with an athletics scholarship to a USA college… and I gave it up to pursue my dream of design.
