Charma Maluleka is cutting through his industry like a hot knife through butter. Enjoying much success, he is proudly wearing JD wherever he goes. Keen on getting to know him a little better, we caught up with this busy business icon and asked him a few questions.



Q: As you are such a seasoned traveller, what is your favourite ‘must-have’ JD garment?

A: I take the JD shades everywhere I go. Besides the shades, my must have garment is the Aspin golfer t-shirt without a doubt.


Q: What does JD mean to you?

A: Jonathan D means “one stop shop” for me as I get such a wide variety of gents wear from one clothing label and don’t have to shop around across different brands to get different looks for my personal style. From socks to underwear, to pants, jeans, t-shirts, shirts, hats, caps and now sunglasses and watches too.


Q: When you feel a weekend getaway coming on, do you shop on-line for you JD look or do you prefer to shop in-store?

A: Depends on how much time I have before the getaway. If I’m pressed for time then it’s definitely the convenience of the online store, Zando, but if I have time then I prefer to shop in-store.


Q: Tell us more about you New York office.

A: It’s an office and not a store by the way. My company Made2FlyCreative, partnered with a US company to open a Made2Fly “mini branch” where we provide graphic & web design services to various businesses in NY that are starting out and don’t have the big budgets but still want proper quality work to help grow their businesses. We only have three permanent employees so it’s still quite small but I strongly believe that by 2020 we should be employing more people and should have bigger clients. My reason for opening a branch in NY is because I feel Made2FlyCreative has something to offer the international market so where better to start the “global industry takeover” rather than the big apple?


Q: You are always surrounded by such beautiful ladies. What do you look for in a model?

A: I look for ambition, passion and exceptional talent. Beauty alone is not enough, so they would need to have much more to offer. What I’m trying to do is groom a new generation of self-loving, self-empowered, hard-working and ambitious young women who will grow to inspire and empower fellow young women through their work. So it’s very key to handpick individuals who have good personal brands and have the ability to grow into future role models. @teammade2fly
