Word on the streets

CîROC x Moschino
Deshnie is a bright shining light of enthusiasm and optimism! When you work with Desh
you can’t help but to feel inspired. She was critical to the success of the CIROC X
MOSCHINO campaign in South Africa - bringing superb ideas to the table and delivering
top notch results. Not only is she a pleasure to work with she is constantly up-skilling
herself and as a result is always on top of trends and what is happening on the digital and
cultural landscape. She inspires me and other woman to reach for the top and to never
give up! If I could work with more Deshnie’s I would be extremely happy! Desh - thank you
for all that you do! Never stop being as cool as you are!
