I am honoured to be the co-founder of the PIAA (Professional Image Association of Africa) together with Minnette Luus. On Dec1 we held our first annual conference. A new legacy in the South African Image Industry has began and I am proud to be part of it.

The PIAA strives to combine all the facets of total image into one organization. We want to establish a network of image experts which includes anyone that wants to, or is already involved in the image industry. This association is for any professional in image or image-related fields e.g. fashion designers/buyers, stylists, fashion journalists, beauticians, hair-stylists, make-up artists, dieticians, wellness and fitness instructors, plastic surgeons etc.

If you are in these related fields and wish to become a member visit www.piaa.co.za.

Sincerest thanks once more to our MC-Lorna Potgieter and speakers Marisa Daly & Marija Ruygrok.
