Argentinian, 53 years old Interior & Product Designer & enterpreneur living in Cape Town, South Africa for the last 30 years.
Career history / Company history:
After being involved for 40 years in the Architecture & interior design industry, now I'm also involved in fashion, I guess is an extension of my creative nature.
I represent Cape Sun Fair Trade (Swiss company) in South Africa & also manage their new Women 4 Women group called Kapa Ilanga (the Sun from the Cape, in Xhosa) manufacturing fashion jewelery made out of recycled paper from magazines.The group is made out of women from the townships outside Cape Town & it aims to provide a regular income for them while at the same time manufacturing items that are ecologically friendly.

Thanks for your message - I am only travelling to Nigeria in March but I am actually planning a bit of a 'tour' starting sometime around July. I'm currently working as a product developer at Burberry in London but planning to throw in the corporate towel and follow my heart into producing fashion sustainably/ethically. My plans are to travel around Africa (mainly) and visit producers and projects, maybe work or volunteer where I can, to see how people are working and gather a network of contacts before I settle and start my own business. If you think you could use me at any point in the next year then I'd love to come and visit you!
