Can you tell a word about yourself ? Your blog/ Your job /Your life between Cape Town and Sweden ?
My name is Emma, from Sweden... I've been modelling full-time for 5 years - Travelling around the world. Cape Town is the place that really captured my heart - I've been going to that city for work every year since I was 16. My blog I started up at Carolines Mode the summer I was home when I was 19... Great success has comes out of that!
When Did you Start EmmaOClothing ? How your designs are produced in South Africa ?
I started emmaoclothing in Febuary 2011 when I was down in Cape Town... It instantly grew into bigger proportions than I had ever expected!
I had great luck in many famous bloggers and fashion sites showing interest in the clothes.
I started working with one woman, designing pieces that she put into making - Now I have a whole factory in Zimbabwe where the same woman is the head of a group of ladies that once was living without money or work.
When I met 'my' lady the first time, she was living in Cape Town without her family in order to provide money for them in Zimbabwe.
Now as I write this - She's at home in her own bought house in Zimbabwe with her both children and husband!
A happy moment for me was when her mom phoned me last summer - Crying and thanking me for have made this project happen.
