Samantha, where are you initially from?

Did you know as a child you wanted to design clothing?

I grew up around fashion as my mother was a dressmaker. Then I didn’t know I was interested in designing. I went on to study business and follow a different career path before changing 4 years ago to fashion.

It’s a beautiful thing when a career and passion comes together.

Your work has already received press from places like Tatler and Vogue.  If you could have your designs in any magazine, where would it be and in what capacity?

What kind of woman wears Fabryan?

The ‘Fabryan woman’ is a modern lady who is not afraid to stand out. She is elegant; she embraces her body, wearing clothes that accentuate her curves without being a fashion victim. She is fiercely irresistible.
