Natashia Steenkamp, who has a real passion for hats, is looking forward to the Vodacom Durban July next month.
She is so hooked on hats that the designs she made for a few friends for last year’s big race ended up launching her own hat-making company, Hats By Natz.
“I have always been creative and I am planning to become a full-time milliner,” says Steenkamp.
She posted some of her race-day designs on Facebook and they were so eye-catching that she was contacted by a couple of suppliers, she recalls.
“Everything I do is a once-off unique design. You don't want to walk into the Vodacom Durban July and see someone wearing the same hat,” she adds.
Steenkamp’s future plans include designing children's hats as she believes there is a gap in the market.
And how is she interpreting this year's theme “A Material World”?
“I am going for more natural colours, and green and red, and keeping it simple.” - Lifestyle Reporter
