In episode 68 of Offline, host Alison Rice has an honest conversation with New Zealand-based freelance fashion creative and founder of Sauce, Zeenat Wilkinson. 

Zeenat grew up in Mumbai and completed a degree in psychology before leaving to study fashion at Central Saint Martins in London. Today, she lives in New Zealand with her husband and their new baby girl. 

This episode honours the journey to successfully making a living as a fashion and lifestyle creative. Zeenat shares how she got her start in media, what it was like working for titles like Vogue India, why she chose to move to London to study at such a prestigious creative college and how being personally impacted by the lack of diversity in media publications led her to create Sauce — a community-led platform that exists to showcase and celebrate diversity of voice, ideas and skin colour. 

She also opens up about her journey into motherhood and how her decade-long dedication to practicing Buddhism helped her find the courage to leave a relationship. This is a very personal story Alison is grateful Zeenat shared with the intention of normalising our tendency to make decisions that please other people but devalue our own needs.
