Meet the one and only Doowap, our latest muse from South Africa.

Shot in Berlin, Doowap styled herself in a vibrant array of pieces from her own wardrobe, easily standing out amongst previous installations from our ongoing Meet the Muse series. Of half-British and half-South African descent, we asked the DJ and stylist a few questions to get to know her a little better.

Also, don't miss our previous Meet the Muse with London-based DJ Siobhan Bell.

What influences your style?

My style is influenced by the year 1995, by South Africa, and by all the colors in the rainbow. I feel most in my element when I'm wearing any type of high-waisted bottoms with a crop top, as well as African beads and gold accessories.

Do you have any style icons?

I admire all the old school peeps: Salt n Pepa, Aaliyah, TLC, Boom Shaka and Grace Jones.

How has your style changed over time?

I really started figuring myself out in 2012, and becoming more alive with color in my presentation. I also stopped shopping at malls and started designing various outfits instead to fit my personality.

When did fashion and dressing well start to matter to you?

I get turned off by the hype of “fashion” but dressing well has always been important to me, as my mother is an incredibly stylish woman who gave me the swag gene from birth.

Is your style very informed by South African fashion?

The beads and African print that I revel in adding to my combos is definitely inspired by South African fashion.

What are some of your favorite sneaker brands?

Pretty much 80% of my sneaker closet is filled with Nike but I like a Reebok or New Balance here and there.

How would you describe your DJ sets? What do you play?

My DJ sets are badass, soulful and electric! It’s a melting pot of genres with a bass undertone. I love taking my audience on a sonic journey, where they eventually open up and let their souls levitate through the music.
