Q&A FROM THE DESIGNER:
Q. What is your design inspiration?
Everything I seem to be drawn to and design is feminine and striking, with an edge or surprising element the most won’t forget, like with our Frankie wedding dress and her pockets.
Q. Tell me two little known facts about you.
1) I grew up in sugar cane farming community called Zinkwazi in South Africa.
2) I am a fierce competitor, even when it comes to food fights. I once knocked someone out with a tomato on a youth camp.
Q. Describe your personal style
Simple but striking, knowing that less is more. I am obsessed Misha Collection. It’s just so classy!
Q. What is your favorite article of clothing.
Probably my demin jacket I bought years ago. It gives me so many options to work with, and I can dress it up or down.
Q. Favorite vacation spot
Byron Bay in Australia. My husband’s family have always gone camping for two weeks every year. When we were dating, I had to pretend I loved camping. We still go every year but I book the cabin for us! It’s right on the beach – amazing.
Q. When did you know that you were going to design bridal?
When I couldn’t find anything I liked when I was engaged, and I thought, I am going to have to design my own wedding dress! I loved creating mine and I couldn’t stop. Made with Love Bridal was then born.
Q. Who is your style icon?
Probably Samantha Wills, for her style and for her unapologetic attitude. Someone called her a #girlboss once. She reminded them that she was the boss, and that her gender had nothing to do with it. Go, SW!
Q. If you could dress any celebrity, who would it be?
In one of my wedding dresses? Definitely Kendal Jenner. I have such a shameless girl crush on her. She’s like the girl next door, but the Hollywood version.
Q. What is the last great book that you read?
Before I Go to Sleep by S. J. Watson. ‘Don’t trust Ben’. Read it and you’ll know what I mean!
Q. Any advice for brides?
Choose a dress that is YOU! Don’t over think or complicate it. You will have that moment, and just don’t look back!
