WOMEN WE WATCH: MARAWA THE AMAZING
High heeled roller skates sparkle under disco lights, twinkling as they twirl across the dance floor...Yep, Guinness World Record breaker, Marawa the Amazing is pretty hard to miss! We first met way back in 2013, where Marawa did her thang at a Faber Social night. Fast forward five years and we've collaborated to create two collectable pieces as part of our GIRLS GOT IDEAS collection. Read on for serious playlist 'spo…
CAN YOU SUM UP WHAT YOU DO IN FIVE WORDS?
Rollerskate/jump rope/hula hoop/international/showgirl!
FROM PODCASTS TO PLAYLISTS, WHAT DO YOU LISTEN TO INSPIRE YOU?
Ooh, right now I have a playlist of amazing UK female artists... mainly a lot of Stefflon Don - she da BEST. I love listening to Perez Prado. In the morning I listen to a lot of Ferrante and Teicher - very soothing - makes you feel like you are in a movie!
WHAT DO YOU PERSONALLY REGARD AS YOUR BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENT?
Holding down the record for spinning the most hoops (200!) for 4 years runnning! It's the hardest record I have done, when I started training the record was still 99 hoops so it was THE BEST to see it all the way through to 200!
WHAT’S THE BEST DECISION YOU EVER MADE?
To defer social science and switch into a Bachelor of Circus Arts...pretty glad I did it :) I had no idea where it was going to get me but I knew it felt right.
There is a period of about 3 years where I really needed a haircut - I don’t know what I was doing but when I look at pics from those years it makes me cringe. Always get a trim! Even if you think you don't need to - you do.
HOW DO YOU RELAX?
Bubble bath - classic - haha.
YOU’VE PREVIOUSLY WORKED WITH REFINERY 29, KENZO AND NOW TATTY DEVINE, WHO WOULD BE YOUR DREAM COLLAB?
CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN. How many times do I need to say this before it happens?!?!!? I LOVE him! Did you know he has a trapeze in his studio ? I mean - it's meant to be! #waiting
WHICH TATTY DEVINE PIECE IS YOUR FAVOURITE?
Oh no, you can't ask that - it's impossible! I would have to say my favourite piece (because there are so many options) are the lil' Charm Earrings! When I first moved to London, I ordered a whole bunch in all different colours... stars and hearts...I used to mix 'n' match them all the time!
WHICH WOMEN ARE YOU WATCHING RIGHT NOW?
Thanks, Marawa! Get your skates on here!
