Danielle Clough is a woman of many talents. She’s a designer and a photographer, but these days she gets recognised for her embroidery work more than anything else. Hey, we see your flummoxed face, you read it right: embroidery. Danielle’s artisanal creations are simply fantastic, ranging from teeny tiny little tropical fruit, to colourfully detailed animals, to unbelievably lifelike embroidered portraits. In addition to this she has had her photography and other works featured in various publications, and been one of the resident artists for 10and5.

I love that there is no formula in how you should live in South Africa. You don't have to have one career, you don't have to have a title. There is so much freedom in that.

Don't be afraid of colour. It's not as much about style, as just having fun with clothes.
