How did you end up being a designer?
Totally by chance, it was a hobby that became a profession/passion.
What is the favorite part of being a fashion designer?
Creativity and Freedom are my 2 favourites, and the constant growing and learning makes it better. With Paperjewelz there are no tutorials, no books… It’s something that has been created over 30 years through hard work and many experiments. It’s something that was embraced and enjoyed by many, people who keep coming back for more. I guess I love seeing people enjoy my work. I aim to make it beyond Perfect, Irresistible- i want it to feel magical!

My greatest influence has come from my mentors and my mother. My whole family actually.
What aspects of the fashion industry would you like to change?
I would like to see more encouragement given to small scale local artisans. We have so much talent in our country. It is very difficult for them to get their work to a good retail outlet.
