Who is Behind Fashion Fanatic SA?

/>Hey there Fashion Fanatics! My name is Marcia Ujobolo.


I was born and raised in Witbank now AKA Emalahleni, South Africa. My background is your typical township girl with an ambition to succeed so after matric I was lucky enough to further my studies in Chemical Engineering but after shift work, overalls and being continuously on stand-by, I decided I want to be on the business side of engineering. To cut the story short, I left core engineering for more business improvement engineering.

Why Fashion Fanatic SA?

I consider myself a Fashion Fanatic and from way back I have always looked for a bargain but also items that are unique to my style. So in 2010 I got hooked on online shopping. I then started buying items mostly shoes and bags for my family and friends. The true test of my online bargain shopping capabilities came in 2011 whiles planning my younger sister’s Matric Dance outfit on a limited budget. I must say, we pulled it off just under R1500 spend that included the dress. Shoes, make-up, hair and a borrowed clutch from my collection.

Fashion Fanatic SA was officially started in March 2012 during one of discussions with my best friend. She asked me, why don’t I just start selling the bags I buy for everyone.

Fashion Fanatic SA is basically a platform and a way to explore my creative nature and inspire others with a bit of my personal style and fashion forward outfits from following international trends. I love clothes and accessories but I am obsessed with Bags and Shoes! Which is why my focus currently is handbags.

I invite you to experience my fashion journey with me. Thanks for reading and Stay Blessed!
