December is absolutely my favourite month, most obviously because it means holiday time for the majority of South Africans, when we get to slow our pace and really enjoy our gorgeous, sunny climate – and our homes.

A folk dance group in Mexico Dokter and Misses’ LALA cabinet and Moonjelly light ‘Ubuqaqawuli Buka Nongayindoda’ by Athi-Patra Ruga Maroon beret by Crystal Birch Vertex table by Xandre Kriel Formentera, Spain. From working in the world’s fashion capitals and shooting Tanzanian music videos to creating bold sequinned unitards for Mongolian mouth contortionists and being the mastermind behind Jack Parow’s signature long caps, Birch is a creative force to be reckoned with. It’s no surprise, then, that she was listed as one of the reasons to visit South Africa by Wallpaper*magazine. ‘I’m a high-energy person full of random jokes and comments,’ she says. ‘When I was five years old, I wore a denim dress and matching hat for five days straight.
