Tell us a little bit about your creative journey ~ How did you fall in love with Fashion and Photography?
I’ve loved Fashion since I was teen. In my school we wore uniform every day except on Fridays. I really enjoyed planning my outfits for that day. However, I didn’t fall in love with it until recent years where I realised how fashion wasn’t about wearing all the latest trends but about wearing clothes that evoke a feeling of confidence and freedom.
My interest for photography started in my teens, when all I wanted was a cool profile picture. That’s how I started discovering amazing photographers and creatives on Flickr. I was always that annoying person taking photos of everything I could! Instagram has been such an amazing platform where I’ve discovered my inner creative.
What do you do to stay healthy when you travel?
To me it’s all about portion size, that’s why I always give my partner half of my plate!
Out of all the countries you have travelled to, which has inspired you the most?
Sounds strange but it was my home country, Guatemala. There’s so much colour around and people are so nice!
What is still on your travel bucket list?
Sri Lanka is at the very top of the list!
How would you describe your personal style?
3 F’s ~ Feminine, Flowy & Free
What are your favourite Kivari Pieces?
I looove the Joni dress
from the new Eclipse collection.
Being a Northern Beaches local, what are some of your favourite spots to spend some downtime at?
The beach!! Some of my favourite ones are Reef Beach, Delwood
, Castle rock or Curl Curl. In the colder months I love a good coffee at our local Girdlers
