Nonzwakazi Masina was born and bred at Mthatha in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. Nzwaki, as she’s affectionately known, was always intrigued by the glitz and glamour and how beautiful people looked on the TV screen and glossy fashion magazines.
After her matric, Nzwaki studied Beauty Therapy and Fashion Design at the Damelin College. Nzwaki’s first job as a cosmetologist saw her working for a few top brands before joining a leading cosmetics company, the MAC Group. She worked for the MAC Group for 3 and half years as manager in Eastgate, Johannesburg.
Over the years, Nzwaki has been a well sought after cosmetologist and has since been involved with some of the top assignments in the Johannesburg beauty calendar, including the Fashion Week events and offering cosmetology services to some of the leading fashion magazines. Nzwaki’s expertise in cosmetology saw her “beautify” one of the leading ladies in Africa and spouse to the former President Nelson Mandela, Mrs. Graca Machel and her daughter, Josina.
Nzwaki and Eve’s Bridal Wear founder Eve Levinsohn business union followed their meeting at a shoot for Top Billing shoot, a TV fashion magazine show on SABC 3, and as they say the rest is history. “I fell in love with Eve’s style of bling wedding gowns”, says Nzwaki. She joined Eve’s Bridalwear as a partner in 2008. “It’s a dream come true to co-own the most glamorous one-stop bridal shop in town I love being part of making Brides feel like Princesses on their Special Day,” says Nzwaki.
