A creative with a flair for design and style, Fazlin Hoosain, founder of Collectic Interiors and Collectic Living is a Cape Town-based designer creating multi-faceted spaces as well as an expansion of lifestyle product designs.
Collectic is defined as: “a new style of decorating which embraces one’s eclectic, personal treasures by combining them with other items with divergent styles.” This is the perfect explanation of Fazlin’s design style. Growing up she always held on to her own personal treasures she received from family members and incorporated it into her personal style.
A firm believer that great design begins with a comprehensive understanding of clients’ needs and expectations as well as allowing one to create a space that is an extension of their personal style or brand.
She achieves this through layering materials and products new and old, forms and interesting juxtaposition of contemporary and eclectic with elements of personal treasures making the space unique. Her recent endeavour includes expanding the brand to incorporate furniture, homeware and bags.
This venture grew from her passion for designing unique and conversational pieces. With her designs, she is embarking on a mission to incorporate and up-cycle excess materials by breathing new life into them and extending their life cycles. With an ever-curious mentality, she discovers new and interesting ways of creating beauty in the spaces and pieces she works on.
She completed her diploma in Interior Design at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology.
