What sparked your interest in fashion design?
I’ve always loved design; my mother was a fashion designer and she was taught by her mother, so it definitely runs in the family.

How do you gather your inspiration, and what does your design process look like?
I love to travel and no matter where I go I’m always taking in information on colours, shapes and textures. Nature is my greatest inspiration when it comes to finding balance in color. I also find inspiration in observing women. I love to see women in their element and when I design that’s how I want them to feel in my clothes. Special.
Every season we start with a concept and our colors, prints and the final styles are created from that concept. This season the concept was Caribbean Mermaid.

I want to wear one of her pieces on a yacht while drinking from a champagne flute and wearing sky high stilettos because they are just so damn gorgeous.

Outfit Post: Shop Shari’s Canvas x WLFG mini skirt

ShopShari’s numbers have yelled my name since day one. Earlier this year, she released her capsule collection – CANVAS. The designer that was previously known for her bright prints and impeccable print mixing talent now had a line that was a collection of solids. SOLIDS! What was going on.

Alright, so despite the collection only being solids, they were bright solids and boy, OH BOY! I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them. Shari definitely did not disappoint.
