What are the chal­lenges and re­wards of work­ing in the same in­dus­try as Ma­rina and Deanna?

Steven: “Sadly I don’t get any fash­ion ben­e­fits from Deanna — she only does wom­enswear! With Ma­rina, it’s re­ward­ing do­ing the jobs we love, trav­el­ling to ex­tra­or­di­nary places and mak­ing beau­ti­ful pic­tures along the way. The chal­lenge is hav­ing to do the Amer­i­can Ninja War­rior ob­sta­cle course at home through her styling racks.” What do you ad­mire most about Steven and Deanna?

Ma­rina: “They have a quiet con­fi­dence I think a lot of peo­ple could learn from. They’re also the hard­est­work­ing peo­ple I know — al­ways burn­ing the mid­night oil but the hours are never a chore be­cause their jobs aren’t ‘work’ to them.” What have you learned from Steven and Ma­rina?

Deanna: “Their drive and ‘never set­tle for av­er­age’ at­ti­tude is the rea­son they’re so suc­cess­ful in their fields. They both have a ded­i­ca­tion and love for their work that is sec­ond to none, and watch­ing them brain­storm to­gether and come up with pure magic is so in­spir­ing.”
