New designers pop up everyday and quite a few of them are undoubtedly talented. We’ve had our eyes on quite a few up and coming brands and we will be highlighting some of the major on-the rise- brands you need to know in the Discover series.

The Zephans & Co woman is strong and sexy and wants clothes that complement her style that she can continue to wear season after season.

On why she started her line

First of all, I’ve been passionate about fashion from a young age. My mum was a fashion designer and it was so fascinating watching her piece fabric together to create masterpieces especially because vibrant colours and prints were a huge part 90’s fashion so it was very intriguing and I use to think to myself “ I definitely want to be able to do this one day”. Then as an adult I always found it difficult to get my style of clothing and when I did, the price would usually be outrageous. I knew there were definitely people like me in the same situation and that was just all the push I needed.

On style inspiration and her personal style

A lot of my inspiration comes from late 80’s to mid 90’s fashion as that typically is my style, I also get inspiration from fashion weeks around the world.
