"Wardrobe is your armor, wear it with pride and transform your life".
Bio: Glynnis Harris
Costume Designer/Wardrobe Stylist:

Fabric is forming. Cloth and character combined construct stories that can be understood at a glance – before a word is spoken.
More than a pastime, my love affair with fabric is a purpose of passion! I remember the moment I fell head over feet in love... I was 4 years old, twirling in the sunlit garden wearing one of my mother’s sequined tops and I was spellbound by the shimmering reflections that danced around me as I did.
From that moment on, no Barbie would be safe from the tireless refashioning.
The solution? Turn that passion into a profession.
I completed my 3 year Fashion Diploma at LISOF in 2000 – and an International Fashion Diploma from the London College of Arts in 2001 – covering all areas of fashion from manufacture to business management and film.
With two years on the Young Designer Fashion Week South Africa platform under the LISOF umbrella.
