MEET THE TEAM: CHANI
Meet the Team; a series dedicated to our incredible staff so you can get to know a little more about those who work behind the scenes (and the counters) to bring you the Drapers you know and love.
This week we're catching up with Chani, our Newmarket sales superstar and latest recruit to the Drapers team. Although she might be new to the team, she's no stranger to the store. Chani has been a regular, alongside her mum Karen (pattern-maker and sewist extraordinaire), for years now!
See what she had to say below;
1) Where did your love of creating come from?
Both my parents are really creative people and I sucked up their love of art, fashion, and design via osmosis... either that or falling off my mum's cutting table as a baby knocked the creativity loose in my head.
2) Your earliest sewing memory?
It's hard to pinpoint just one. Since my mum is a pattern-maker and seamstress sewing has always been a big part of my life.
3) What inspires you the most?
A full list would be too long so I'll keep it short and just say: my mum.
4) How do you spend your time when you're not at Drapers?
Sleeping, eating, reading, consuming hilarious garbage-y TV shows with my best friend, and working towards my honours in art history.
5) Your favourite fabric at the moment and what would you make it into?
One of my favourites at the moment is our NZ wool Twiggy (specifically the red and orange colour-way) and I would make her into the steeziest 2-piece suit known to man.
