Valerie is a Fashion designer and special Effects make-up artist. She is passionate about people and art and on most days she is either running the day to day operations of her fashion label, Kahvarah, or learning more skills through freelance styling and make-up opportunities. Valerie has been drawn to using sustainable and ethical practices in creating her clothes and encouraging other emerging designers to do the same. She has given talks about the importance of recycling clothes and believes that a healthier planet means a better future. Valerie has fortunately had the opportunity to share her idea worth spreading on the TEDx Table Mountain stage.
