From corporate finance to leading London fashion stylist to holistic living (and everything in between), this inspiring Adelaide-based woman has done it all and now she wants to live with less. Downsizing – or as Priscilla Bokhara likes to call it, fun-sizing – is something that we’ve all probably dreamt about doing. Following films like ‘Eat, Pray, Love’, ‘Into the Wild’ and books like “Life Changing Magic of Tidying”, there’s something aspirational about being able to free ourselves from the mere things in our lives.
Over the years of Priscilla’s storybook life, she has managed to collect an insane amount of things, particularly designer clothes that she’s now ready to sell to new homes (including a corset by the Sex & the City stylist). She has come to a point in her life where she says her “heart has been reset” and she has realised the things that used to matter, simply don’t anymore. She says, “it’s important to live with love and not let [material] things control you”, referencing Marie Kondo’s method of only keeping things that spark joy within you. And while we marvel at Priscilla’s audacity, hoping to one day reach that same point, we ask ourselves…does a vintage Givenchy suit designed by Alexander McQueen spark joy in my life? Yes. Yes it does.
Priscilla will be selling unique and collectable pieces from Europe, USA & Asia (most size EURO 42, USA 10, UK 12) this Saturday 25th & Sunday 26th November.
