For the past few years I have been working for myself as a fashion designer in Johannesburg, South Africa. I have had the opportunity to explore my own design style and share it locally through South African Fashion Week. My style looks at my exploration of beauty, creativity and the 21st Century culture. I strive for my work to speak for itself, to relay emotion, a sense of beauty. Similar to the romanticism I see in the work of the Pre-Raphaelites. While studying my degree in Fashion Design I wrote a dissertation on my investigation into the application of the Theory of Deconstruction in the fashion design process.
