After studying fashion design, Claudia entered the fashion industry as a visual merchandiser and window dresser for leading department stores in South Africa and UK. She has now been working as a wardrobe and prop stylist since 1998. Although styling is her main focus, make up and hair interests her too. After having completed courses in both make-up and hair styling, she began working with it professionally in 2008.
Claudia has contributed to numerous productions which have included both stills and film, and covered categories such as advertising, catalogue, editorial and photo library. She has been privileged to have travelled to jobs in Europe, USA and Namibia and shot with international photographers from Europe, Japan, USA, Mexico as well as local South Africans. Advertising campaigns include global brands such as Nike, Adidas, Ellesse, Speedo, Roland Garros, Peacocks, Coca Cola, Nissan, BMW, Canon, Phillips and many more.
Claudia loves the industry she works in and is constantly inspired by the amazing locations that she is fortunate enough to call 'her office'. Working with different clients on varying briefs makes her job continuously exciting. She is known for her calming nature and attention to detail. She loves her job!
Claudia speaks; English, Portuguese, Afrikaans and French.
