Pmb fashion designer wins again

He received awards for Fashion Innovator 2018 and Next Generation Emerging Designer.
When he completed school, Steenkamp worked for seven years in the retail industry as a fast food manager to save money so that he could study fashion design at the Pietermaritzburg School of Fashion Design.
Steenkamp said that his own life story encouraged him.
“Other emerging creatives and visionaries who have different perspectives to those of the status quo are part of what inspires me. My life story is also what inspires me to be more every day,” he said.
Steenkamp’s favourite design is a garment that he created for the Vodacom Young Designer Competition this year. It was one of the top five. The garment was a tailored coat with hand-manipulated sleeves and a skirt that was hand embellished with leather scales.
A designer Steenkamp admires most is Trevor Stuurman, due to his bold taste in fashion and the fact that he celebrates the works of up and coming new talent.
Steenkamp said that it was important to always maintain a balance.
“I am a courageous, honest, emphatic, creative and focused person. I believe that a customer is important and one must aim to maintain the balance between creativity and the needs of clients,” he said.
Steenkamp is currently working towards creating a luxury menswear brand that supplies a variety of boutiques and retailers across Africa. Steenkamp wears his own creations. They not only set him apart, but most importantly, are an extension of how he celebrates his brand, John Martin.
