Design Your World: Studio Diaries

'Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.' This is one of my favorite  quotes because it resonates with the way I see the world as a designer too. As I walk through the city, I find myself attentive to my surroundings. I observe how different buildings are constructed and how their form flows into one another.  I see how different lines intersect and change from certain angles. Some features have a functional character while some are more aesthetic. When I stop to notice all these details around me, I find myself inspired. There is a strange beauty in even...

Design your World: Transamerica Pyramid Building

I thought a lot about the inspiration for the first look of my new series.  When I moved to San Francisco from South Africa, it was a new world to me.  In the heart of that new world, one building stood above all the others.  The Transamerica Pyramid Building.  It was different and bold.  Curiosity led me to learn more. The first day I moved to San Francisco was the first time I saw the pyramid.  I was memorized and fascinated by the design. It's not often you find a pyramid in the middle of an urban jungle.  I would walk to different parts of the city and the pyramid would take on new character.  I would see the pyramid at...

Design Your World: 12 months 24 looks

I happily invite you to come with me as I design 24 looks for my next runway.  This is a step in my life I am excited to share with you because it is a bridge to good things to come.  It is also a bridge from me to you!

The white sneaker

The white sneaker trend has taken the world by storm. Along with the at-leisure vibe that is a part of our lives, honestly… I’m loving it! Living in San Francisco, you have to do a lot of walking no matter where you go. Throwing on a pair of sneakers just seems so perfect.  Granted, I still love rocking a nice pair of heels any day, there is something so nice about feeling comfortable. Everywhere you go around America right now there are new comfy stylish white shoes showing up in soulful ways. They are the perfect and versatile companion to walk with you and your wardrobe whatever road you may be traveling. I paired mine with a pair of black skinnies, a soft...

Gucci Loafers

Loafers - Gucci - piqued interest indeed! The release of these recent pups came as quite a surprise.  So much so that people have been striding around the fashion world in them feeling good and looking fly.  They even caught the attention of Hough Hefner himself.  He took a moment of time to pair them with one of his notable robes and call them, ‘cool’. I don't what they are just yet but I am very curious to try them on for a test drive myself.     A few bloggers like Marissa & Becca of Twice Blessed and Amanda of Oracle Fox have styled them well.  To the point that, well, they look pretty 'cool'. Cheers to the Australian bloggers for their style...
