UKZN alumnus and former Miss SA finalist Ms Xia Narain features on the cover of a brochure for one of the world’s leading luxury department stores. Narain was chosen to showcase the latest trends and designer fashion for the UK’S Harrods. She modelled brands such as Chanel, Cartier, Prada and Rolex as part of their editorial feature and appears on the cover and inside the brochure.

Since her move to London, Narain has become the face of high-end makeup brand Bobbi Brown UK and is working with Burberry, Ted Baker, River Island, NEXT and other big brands.

Narain said she had been overwhelmed by the support from home. ‘It makes me so proud to be a South African and to have contributed something positive towards representation in the industry.’

She holds a Bachelor’s degree in General and Industrial Psychology from the College of Humanities. ‘I will eventually come back to UKZN until I get my doctorate and then hopefully open my own practice,’ she said.
