Devan Wallace, the twenty five year old marketing professional who “equal-topped” your vote for favourite style and fashion look for December 2015, was walking through Melbourne when stopped by street style photographer, Mary Tham.
Originally from Durban, South Africa and with all pride and patriotism still running through his veins, Devan’s made Melbourne his home for the past two years, with his Melbourne girlfriend and partner.
Naturally, he’s a keen rugby enthusiast and while he’ll happily engage you in all the positives about his wonderful homeland, he’s also a keen traveler who sounds like he’s not yet finished seeing the world. But he’s also a busy entrepreneur who runs a thriving sports marketing company which he plans to develop “to a level where I can directly impact the unemployment situation in South Africa and help eliminate poverty”. Currently enrolled in a Masters’ level marketing course with Stellenbosch university, it sounds like Devan is learning as much as he can to make sure he achieves his goal.
We stopped by Devan’s home to snap these pics when he received his prize worth over $200, from gentSac, a premium mens’ essentials subscription service based in Sydney.
Devan was quoted as saying he “enjoys the finer things in life”. We think his appreciation of quality was evident as he opened his Dapper Man gift box of premium products that had been carefully selected for him by Shira from gentSac. We’ll be featuring Devan in another post shortly, with more shots of him modelling for gentsac!
Post Script: Like all our lucky monthly winners, Devan also received a fab bundle of Happy Socks from Sweden. Make-up Artist Morgan Stonebridge who was also snapped in Melbourne tied with Devan for equal highest votes. Morgan’s received her Happy Socks, but we’re unable to photo shoot with her in her current location. We hope to be able to post some photos from Morgan at a later date.
