Creative Inspiration

Dressed By The Hive Fashion Cape Town


I was recently in London for the Royal Investiture at Buckingham Palace! I was accompanying Lindsay Ziehl of Yokhuselo Haven for Abused Women, who was awarded an MBE (Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) for her work in Domestic Violence in South Africa.

One of the PR events surrounding the events was a visit to the London City Hall, to meet with the Lord Mayor’s office about their efforts in helping similar vulnerable women + children in London.

We met with Programme Manager Sarah Tyler + Senior Programme Manager Jain Lemom, of the Violence Against Women + Girls Team for the Mayor’s Office in London for Policing + Crime. I am standing with Antonette Hamman + Lindsay Ziehl (both wearing purple).

I wore a dress created especially for me by Jade Saunders of the Hive Fashion Cape Town. You can visit her Website here + her Facebook here. She is also on Instagram here.

About her label

The Hive is a women’s wear collection made with natural fabric and detailed with African Crochet. The Hive is inspired by my travelling last year where I found myself frolicking around Spain and then based in Thailand. I am mesmerized by the fashion on the streets and found that people watching could amuse me for hours. I’d get lost with a camera and a sketch pad; always to come home having found something beautifully inspiring to add to my African roots.
