Meet Sharita. Fashion designer and new mum to baby, Farrah. Sharita’s realised that sweating the small stuff, being productive every minute of the day and negative self-talk is simply unfashionable.
What I wear on a typical work day
Wide leg pant, singlet, blazer and runners. In summer, I live in maxi dresses and sandals.
My design style
I like to start with a few key images of inspiration which form a colour palette and direction. I love a playful use of colour. I believe as a designer, being able to spot an emerging trend and implementing it in a way your customer will understand, gives you an edge. Balancing fashion and commercial product is key.
What I’m loving right now
Printed, co-ordinated sets and chunky sandals for summer. Also, I am currently obsessed with watching White Lotus.
The rule I live by
Balance in every aspect of life - whether it’s working, eating, exercise - striking a balance is essential to your wellbeing and sanity. It doesn’t have to be all or nothing.
The truth about me
I’m a massive homebody, typical Cancerian and I love to doom scroll Tik-Tok.
Who I want to be when I grow up
The woman that can juggle it all - career, family, social life.
What I’ve realised about myself
Becoming a mother has taught me not to sweat the small things and to be more patient. Also - negative self-talk is not conducive to living a happy life.
Top new mum tip
Not every part of the day has to be productive. Take a nap when you can and be kind to yourself. You’re learning too.
I never leave the house without
These days… an extra dummy and a change of clothes for nappy leaks.
