What about you may surprise people?
I think most people know that I have quite a sweet tooth, but not many know that I bake pretty well.

You studied fashion at FEDISA. What do you like best about the industry?
It’s a really fast-paced and exciting industry, and the rise of digital media has made it evolve even faster.

Describe your style in three words.
Modern, refined and comfortable

Since you deal with our clients’ collections every day, have you spotted anything that has your name on it for summer?
I really do love the AAKS hand-woven bags, particularly the AAKS Volta Noir bag. Their designs combine African weaving techniques with a modern approach, and it’s great that they support and bring attention to African communities and their amazing skills and talent.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
That it’s important to stay motivated and keep learning. My gran always makes that clear to me, as she herself never stops learning.

What’s on your radar right now?
I am a big foodie and love trying out new restaurants and cafes. Right now, I have two on my radar: Burger & Lobster and, for brunch, I love Giulio’s Café.

What will be your go-to item this party season?
‘If it’s not black put it back!’ One cannot go wrong with a black bodysuit and I’ll wear mine with PICHULIK’s Voluttuoso maroon neckpiece.

Most memorable PR moment so far?
Being part of the team that worked on Salon 58’s Awaken: Grace soirée has definitely been a highlight. It was really amazing and rewarding to see the creative ideas come to life.

If you weren’t working in fashion, what would you do?

I would really love to be involved in photography. But whatever it is, is will be be creative and fun.

What’s the biggest misconception people have about PR?

I think people see it as being a really glamorous industry. Although there is that side to it, there is another side, which requires a lot of hard work, dedication and persistence.

How would you sum up the JMPR team in one word?
Dynamic. We each have our own strengths that fit together really well. We’re efficient and get the job done, plus we all have the same eye and aesthetic, which is great.

What did you do before joining JMPR?
After studying at the AAA School of Advertising, I worked at Superbalist as a graphic design intern.

Describe your style in three words.
Minimalistic. Monochromatic. Relaxed

What about you may surprise people?
I love illustrating and one of my creative outlets is my blog, On Wednesdays, where I blog with Yolanda Senekal.

The summer shoe on your lust list?
If you don’t know Espadril, make it your business! It’s difficult to choose just one style, though.

What’s the best beauty advice you’ve ever received?
Never go to bed with your make-up on.

What’s on your radar right now?
Like Dan, I am a major foodie and really enjoy finding new restaurants; Villa 47 in Bree Street, Root 44 for picnics and First Thursdays (for combining music, restaurants and art galleries all in one evening – it’s great!)

It’s nearly party season. What is your one must-have accessory for special occasions?
I am a big fan of fine jewellery and the V rose gold and diamond ring from Ambra Fine Jewellery is very much me.

Most memorable PR moment?
Working at all our events are amazing but my favourite was the PICHULIK SS17 collection preview. Everything was in shades of pink, subtle hues and stood for feminine strength. It is very beautiful and inspiring.

Which fashion designer excites you?
Gucci. I really love their aesthetic and style that’s always super creative, whimsical and playful.

What’s the biggest misconception people have about PR?
That it is all glitz and glam. It is much harder work than people imagine.

Who inspires your style?
Bloggers and celebrities like Margaret Zhang, Sara Donaldson and Kendal Jenner.

If you had to sum up the JMPR team in one word, what would it be?
Accomplished
