Hazel’s inspiration and muse:
“She naturally has a close bond to African culture and having traveled around the world, it has led her to combine both her African roots with the rich cultural experiences she has had over time in her travels in Europe. This combination of various cultures across Europe and Africa formed the basis of her collection. She’s passionate about mixing and matching colours and loves nothing more than to make a stunning entrance. Her collection accentuates the feminine, the brave and the sexy and it’s her mission to bring out the colourful goddess in every woman”. – states her website
