This year I finally took a leap of faith and decided to start my own make-up and hair agency called, LE Agency. Today I would like to tell you how this dream came to be.
As a 16-year old girl, I visited my dear friends, Serena and Nicko, in Paris. They introduced me to their company, B Agency, also a make-up and hair agency. I was astounded and returned to South Africa with a dream firmly settled in my heart.
While I had started to pursue my dream by becoming qualified and gaining experience and a client base over weekends, I did not have the courage to take that very big leap into Going Professional. I kept waiting for the right time, right number of clients, right financial situation… Meanwhile, as the years went by, my hobby became increasingly recognised and popular. If there was ever a time to take the aforementioned leap, this was it, or I will surely keep postponing indefinitely.
The LE Agency is still very small, but we make a mean team. Dynamite truly does come in small packages. We proved as much by our first company act, which was to arrange a styled shoot for all artists involved. We arranged dresses, flowers, models, locations, all the required aspects! Today, I share these images with pride, knowing that our hard work has paid off. May this be the beginning of many more successes to come.
