Born in South Africa, now based in Chilliwack BC. She is a self-taught artist and designer. Anelia designs all her fabrics, and her fashions are wearable pieces of art, worn whenever the spirit moves you, no matter what time of year. She believes that colour is very important for the soul and is very passionate about protecting the environment. Anelia supports local businesses and her dresses are all made individually and finished by hand, some with original Swarovski crystals.

Her Rash Guards are made out of recycled fabrics that are UPF50 and made from post-consumer drinking bottles, shrimp and crab shells. Her garments are timeless and can be worn for many years; she sees it as her contribution towards saving the planet. .
