Give us a quick introduction to Flavia?
I love life and making the most of it. Fashion, family and food is what’s important to me. Life is short so I try to achieve the goals I want to achieve and do everything to the best of my ability.
Tell us about your name?
It is Italian and it means golden or blonde.
How has your 2019 kicked off and what are you looking forward to most this year?
It has been been amazing so far. I’ve started investing in property this year, which I’ve been wanting to do since I was a little girl. It’s been a busy but productive year and I’ve had a lot of fun while trying new things and going on little adventures. So all in all I’m enjoying it so far .
If you could live in any city in the world, which would it be?
Italy! I am Italian, I love the culture (and the food of course) and the country. So if I could move there tomorrow, it would be a dream.
Given the option to live as a male for just one day, what would you like to get up to?
I’d eat whatever the hell I wanted just, and walk around topless just because I can.
Being an entrepreneur in the fashion industry, what does your daily work routine usually consist of?
It always changes, but I check my spreadsheets, reply to customers and make sure the team is completing orders, etc. I am also involved in my family business, so I can’t just work on my fashion businesses, I have to do my work for that too. My days are very busy all the time.
What attracted you to the fashion industry and where would you like to see it take you?
Since I was a little girl I loved fashion and I always found myself in the fashion industry. Whether it be modeling, styling, or making clothes, fashion has always been a passion of mine. I would love to keep doing what I’m doing and just keep growing.
What is your favourite social media platform?
I love Instagram. I can see the latest fashion trends and styles for the season, as well as find hidden gems whether it be a cute restaurant or different adventures taking place around Cape Town.
What one thing can you never leave home without?
Lip Ice! My lips need to be hydrated all the time, I think I might have a slight addition [laughs].
What is your definition of sex appeal?
Being confident within yourself makes you sexy!
Have you ever used your good looks to get yourself out of trouble?
I’m never in trouble.
Leave us with some word of inspiration?
I am an artist at living ~ my work of art is my life.
Whats the first thing that comes to mind when we mention:
Life goals? So many.

Turn off? Rude and negative vibes.
Cape Town? My home.
Weekends? The best.
