Kirsten is a maker and self-styled woman, whose talents are noticed and appreciated by all those who know her.  This week she wears garments made for and by herself…

“I have always created and made clothes for myself.  When I was younger it was also  about the hair and make-up.  Big big beehives and all the make-up too.  I would make a lot of clothes for myself.  No, it wasn’t because of the cost of clothes so much.  It was because I wanted to be different.  I didn’t want to be like everyone else.  I still do feel this way.  The dress is made from material I bought new for a design I had in mind.  The bolero jacket was made from a piece of retro fabric bought from a second-hand shop.  The shoes are from Tango’s”.
