How would you describe your sense of style?
My style is simple, elegant and sophisticated in a casual way. For example when I wear jeans, I at times compliment it with a jacket. I also enjoy wearing skirts and high heels to work.
What’s your favourite clothing item?
I have a black stylish jacket that I love because it matches everything else I wear it with.
Where do you shop for clothes?
I don’t have a specific place. Several times I go with my best friend for shopping because I’m a fan of her style. I usually call her my style manager (laughs). If we are not buying material to make our desired designs, we frequent Mr. Price to buy the latest designs.
What do you consider when shopping for clothes?
The quality and price of the clothes I’m to purchase are important things I consider when shopping for clothes. Secondly, I ask myself if I have a similar outfit in my wardrobe. When it comes to tailored clothes, the finishing is very important to me.
What is your favourite fashion accessory?
A watch and earrings are my favourite fashion accessories and occasionally, hats.
What is your favourite clothing item on a guy?
I like guys who wear fitting shirts paired with jeans or a t-shirt and blend it with a coat.
What’s your favourite scent?
Clin d’ Oeil perfume is my favourite.
What is the most expensive fashion accessory you own and why did you buy it?
My black and gold Swatch watch but I didn’t buy it. It was a gift on my birthday.
Any fashion advice?
Follow what’s on top but try to be yourself, don’t try to look like someone else it will cost you a lot and you will end up failing.
