Form and function is at the very core of VIVRA. We strive for quality, durability and on-trend looks with our VIVRA pouches so as you move about your day, you don’t need to worry about the security of your personal belongings or looking like you’ve just come from an 80s ad for fanny packs! The VIVRA hands-free, belt-free movement is growing and this month we teamed up with the gorgeous Aicha of ‘The Fashion Heist’ to talk all things form and function.
How long have you been involved in the fashion industry?
About 5 years now, full-time probably 3 years.
We love your work, and everything you do is so beautiful - what is the driving force that makes you want to keep doing what you do?
Thank you! One of the major reasons I keep going is because of the freedom I get with this work. I run my own schedules and work when I want to!
Another bonus is getting to work with inspirational people and at the same time inspire all the people who enjoy what I do. I'm very fortunate to be in the position I am in.
How do you keep yourself organised, particularly when you’re also busy with your fashion label, travel and other work commitments?
A diary is key! And not overloading myself with jobs is another crucial part of it. Although I'm busy a lot I make sure that I don’t bite off more than I can chew. Making time for rest is also important because a clear mind is a healthy and active mind - it really helps me push through!
We know you love your VIVRA - what do you keep inside yours?
My gym card, headphones, phone and bank card. It's all a girl needs on the go!
Snap, zip, go! Where have you been with your VIVRA pouch and why is it important for you to be hands-free?
On the plane, to the gym, shopping - it's just easy! I love being hands free just because I'm always taking photos of things and VIVRA helps me do that. It’s especially useful when you’re flying because you can keep all your important documents on your person and not have to rummage through your bag when getting your ticket out.
VIVRA was designed to move with you. How has it helped you whilst on the go?
I've made a gym specific VIVRA which is always in the car - so I never forget my headphones & gym card. It's actually helped me to remember and stay organised!
What’s your favourite way to relax and unwind after a big day?
Chatting to friends always helps me unwind or sometimes I just jump into bed and take a nap. Especially after a huge photo shoot day - there is nothing better than a comfy bed!
What is your motto/mantra/words you live by?
‘There's always room in the universe’ - my mum constantly tells me this. Whenever I doubt myself it really boosts my spirits. The universe is endless and so is our potential!
What advice would you tell your 20 year old self?
Stop stressing about everything and enjoy the ride!
Finish this sentence. I have always wanted to….
… become best friends with a sloth or a capybara - whichever comes first!
Aicha, you gorgeous woman! What an inspiring chat, and we’re so glad to have learnt a bit more about you.
Stay fabulous and organised just like Aicha and shop her style now.
