Meet our Team: Mikhailia

Mikhailia, or Miki as she’s fondly known to all of us, joined us in 2016 when we opened our first brand store in Cape Town’s East City Precinct. Wonderfully, Miki already understood our brand and processes intimately – she had previously worked at the fabulous Mungo & Jemima, which stocks our clothing –  and she fitted right in from day one.As our retail manager, Mikhailia not only assists each customer that walks through our doors, she also manages our online store – each beautifully packaged parcel and handwritten thank you note you receive is put together and dispatched by Miki.Creative, hard-working and warm, Miki has been an incredible asset to us as we’ve navigated the huge task of opening and running our first store, and we love that she represents our brand each day with so much energy and sparkle.

Here are a few things you might like to know about Miki:

 

Bowie or Beyonce?

Neither

 

Classic or trendy?

Classic

 

Cook or take out?

I wish I could say cook however I’m not really talented in the kitchen,so take out it is!

 

Sneakers or heels?

Sneakers – I’m always on the go or riding my bike.

 

Fact or fiction?

Fact, I love reading autobiographies. Sometimes I feel like I can get very much stuck in my head, so it gives me perspective and inspiration.

 

Sunshine or rain?

Without the rain there won’t be any sunshine, so both.
