I’ve had a #girlcrush on this bohemian beauty for the last decade! After traveling and working in the states for the last two years Jana is back in the Mother City, acting, modeling AND designing her very own handbag line: Banani Bags (labeled after her nickname Banana). She shares with Sneak Peek how it all started and what never leaves her bucket bag…
My #girlcrush this week is Chanel Grantham, co-owner of Herbivore, and is expecting a baby boy in September. She is officially my first friend to be having a baby and I couldn’t be more excited for her. She shares with Sneak Peek some advice on starting your own business and the best tips for staying stylish with a baby bump. Some gals really do have it all!
I’m so excited to introduce a new section in Sneak Peek called Girl Crush. This section is dedicated to all the fabulous woman in my life that inspires me every day. One of the many perks of my job is that I get to work with the most amazing team, my #GirlCrush this week is our fashion editor Marishka Denicker, this gal is just so so cool. I sat down with her for 5 minutes and asked her to share some of her style secrets…
What item in your wardrobe can’t you live without?
I can’t live without my black cigarette trousers from Country Road, have two pairs just in case and really want a third. And alllllll of my shoes!
How would you describe your style?
Hmm, this is a tough one. I think that I would describe my style as classic with a bit of and edge. A little bit quirky with styles that suit my shape.
Who would you say is your style icon, locally and internationally?
Alexa Chung, Veronika Heilbrunner, Jenna Lyons and locally I would say my trend friends: Bronwyn Day and Roxanne Robinson.
Do you organise your wardrobe in any special way?
I colour coordinate my hanging clothes and then also separate them into items so all dresses and skirts are in one place and shirt and jeans on a separate rail. I have too many pairs of shoes to coordinate. Haha. They are all over the show.
You always wear the most amazing earrings, where are your favourite places to get your magpies?
Surprisingly I am finding some amazing earrings at Zara lately. But generally, I look around at little jewellery stores and love vintage stores for jewellery in general.
Who are your favourite local and international designers?
My favourite international designers of the moment are Molly Goddard, Simone Rocha, Dries Van Noten, The Row, Miu Miu and Rochas. Locally I love Rich Minisi, Superella, Lunar, Morphe, Wake and Loin Cloth and Ashes.
I love your hair but recently thought an old pic of you, was someone completely different. Take me through your hair’s evolution…
I have always enjoyed playing my hair, when I was younger I was a bit more adventurous with colouring my hair but I think I have settled on a colour, now I just play with cuts going from short to long and long to short.
