Decorex SA introduces the first ever Creative Business Exchange, a workshop dedicated to building a successful creative design brand, to run alongside Decorex Durban and Cape Town in 2015. The innovative half-day forum, aimed at individuals and small businesses in the interior design, décor, architecture, product and craft sectors, is set to stimulate a creative-thinking environment.
Creative brand visionary, Nadia van der Mescht, who will be facilitating the event, began her career in marketing, but yearned for a career in fashion and accessories, which saw her launch her first business in 2004 creating bespoke accessories for local boutiques. Although her vast experience includes stints at luxury London fashion
house Burberry as well as at local apparel and homeware giant Mr Price Group, she is perhaps best known for her popular lifestyle blog and creative business development consulting.
More recently the titles of stylist, lecturer and décor-magazine writer have been added to her impressive portfolio. Van der Mescht’s true flair lies in guiding creatives and small businesses, her stellar track record demonstrates an enviable ability to inspire, educate and motivate clients, equipping them with the vital tools needed to build their brands and drive their creative businesses forward.
