Tanya Mushayi on her favourite book

“Everytime I feel I’m losing my way on my creative path I re-read "The Alchemist” by Paulo Coehlo. It reminds me that life rarely turns out the way that we planned. We must always realise that we WILL definitely face obstacles before success. Nature teaches us this very lesson every day when we witness that its always darkest before dawn. History is largely told as a chronicle of great people doing great things. For most of us, life is not made up of big moments but it's made up of small moments. With every small choice, with every small decision, we are defining ourselves.“

Come to the edge He said,
They said: We are afraid.
Come to the edge, He said.
They came. He pushed them,
And they flew …

by Guillaume Apollinaire

“Moral of the story is successful people are willing to take a chance - a leap of faith - even though they were afraid. They knew if they didn’t act, the opportunity would pass them by. Trust your intuition & simply go for it, whatever "it” is" - Tanya’s inspiration of the week

“I introduced crop tops to my collection and people were asking how does one wear a crop top in winter & this is how i styled the crop top. Denim shorts over leggings, boots, crop top, scarf and denim jacket on top the main focal point still being the Tanya Nefertari print crop top.”

“A few months back I attended the Zimbabwe Fashion Week MAD
