5 minutes with Candice Rose O’Rourke
Anything you take, or do, religiously every day?
Can take only 5 things from your home to a deserted island.
My dog Daisy for companionship, DEIJI bed linen for a touch of deserted island luxury, water – obvious reasons, food – again, obviously – and finally, a phone to call someone to get me out of there.
Beanfields Bean and Rice Chips Nacho flavor – seriously delicious.
Place of birth:
Port Macquarie NSW Australia
Sunday Supply Co. umbrella, ZZ Mini swimsuits for my two kids Zimmy and Val, Invisible Zinc and a ZZ onepiece.

Top 3 films, different genres?
I love documentaries and a hearty romance film. But to be real, I am a Netflix kind of girl. The Sinner is my current obsession. Jessica Biel is insane.
I tend to touch back on music that shaped my early 20’s – SADE, John Mayer, Ben Harper, george, The Presets, Flight Facilities. I also love RUFUS.
Women you most admire?
I admire my sister and business partner Karla for her creativity and sense of direction in all aspects of her life. I also admire Zulu & Zephyr’s GM Mel for her hard work, intelligence and style – I am lucky to work beside these women daily.
Best gift received?
My husband has a knack for buying great jewelry and shoes for me – I don't know how he does it but he always impresses.
Best gift given?
My children, Zimmy and Val!
What qualities in women inspire you?
I love meeting women who can build you up, offer encouragement and kindness.
I look for inspiration in?
Interiors and furniture. My home really is my sanctuary - so I invest in pieces I really love.

Play guitar and sing and that I once busked my way through Europe.
3 words to describe your work?
Honest, collaborative and creative.
Work you are most proud of?
Each collection of Zulu & Zephyr is like serving up a piece of our life – but I personally love when we get behind the camera and shoot the campaign. It is challenging, fun and super spontaneous.
