My second Girl Friday is South African-born model, Marike le Roux. Already being hailed as a style icon in the making by fashion insiders, Marike hails from the humble hamlet of Potchefstroom but was raised in Korea, and reputedly speaks fluent Korean.
This local lovely has already walked for illustrious names like Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen (!), Chloe, Herve Leger and Sonia Rykiel and graced the cover of the July issue of Turkish Vogue. Sjoe! Pretty impressive for an 18 year old from upcountry, huh?
Marike’s style is laid-back luxe with a slick of grunge; the perfect antithesis to her translucent skin and apple blossom cheeks.
Looking forward to seeing more of Miss le Roux and her on-trend / off-duty style.
Look out for her as the new face of Sonia Rykiel.
