Chantal started studying fashion shortly after arriving in the UK from South Africa. She first completed a Btec National Diploma in Fashion at West Herts College before continuing her studies at university.
Chantal recently graduated with an BA (Hons) Fashion degree from the University of Northampton. Her final year collection La Divinia Amazonia was mentored by Sandie Downey an ex-patterncutter to Galliano and Chanel and Piera Amata an amazing seamstress as well as being supported by her fantastically devoted parents. Chantal first showed her collection at the University of Northampton Graduate Show at the Royal & Derngate theatre in Northampton.
Her final year collection was selected for the catwalk of Alternative Fashion Week 2009. Chantal showed on Monday the 20th April 2009 at Spitafields Market and had hands on support from Charlotte Johnson from the hair salon The Annexx and Colin & Tanya Gibbs-Jones.
Chantal had the opportunity to show at Alternative Fashion week on Monday the 19th April 2010 with her All about the Cupcake collection.
Since Alternative Fashion Week Chantal had taken part in other fashion shows including those by La Geneve North Events.
Chantal has created a bodycon collection to help fund her exciting new winter collection.
