Dominique was born in Port Shepstone, KZN but spent her formative years in Cape Town and started traveling as international model at the age of sixteen. After school she went on to study nutrition and exercise science online, which she counts as her biggest passions and now, after ten years of full-time modelling, she has decided to slow down and base herself in Cape Town, where she works as a property broker.
Saying all this, Dominque wears many hats – she is world traveller, a model, an estate agent, a freelance fitness & wellness coach and a certified nutritional advisor.

I can’t start my day without a workout and I firmly believe that health starts from the inside out, so what we fuel our bodies with is so important.
I met Dom at a Havaianas event in 2017, and I can safely say that Dom is one of the most beautiful woman I know inside and out!
Fria’s superfoods: Dom, tell us, in your ten-year modelling career I assume you’ve travelled extensively. Where have you been?
Dom Lamon: I’ve been lucky enough to travel to the US (Orlando, Miami), Paris, Milan, London, Hamburg, Berlin, Dubai, Bali, Hong Kong, China, Seychelles, Mauritius, Perth – and I’ve lived in many of these cities for extended periods of time.
Fria’s superfoods: We know a little bit about what you do – and you do SO MUCH! How do you do it and what is your driving force?
Dom Lamon: Well, my driving force is that I love what I do. I believe that when you enjoy your work, you make the time to do it all… because it’s not really work 🙂
Fria’s superfoods: And where do you see yourself in five years?
Dom Lamon: That’s such a difficult question to answer because there are always so many exciting and different opportunities coming my way. I love the journey that I’m currently on and always try my best to be present. I try to not get to caught up in what has happened in the past and what might happen in the future. It’s very important to live in the moment.
Fria’s superfoods: So far, what is your biggest achievement EVER?
Dom Lamon: My biggest achievement by far is writing and releasing my eBook ‘Clean Slate’, which focuses on detoxifying the body.
Fria’s superfoods: Ooh, how do I get my hands on a copy of Clean Slate?
Dom Lamon: You can DM me on Instagram and I’ll send you a copy!
Fria’s superfoods: Cool! But why the focus on being healthy?
Dom Lamon: I firmly believe that health = wealth and happiness, and it all begins with slowing down to enjoy every moment of your life. It starts from the inside out… I can’t start my day without a workout and I’m positive that what we fuel our bodies with is super important because how these two things make me feel daily is beneficial.
Dom Lamon: Like I said, what we fuel our bodies with is so important. Fria’s Superfoods treats are healthy and delicious – you don’t get better than that in my book!
