1950s South African Fashion. The reason why “Black is beautiful” was coined. Miriam Makeba.
Have you ever stayed up at night just thinking about what the future has for someone like me. Young, driven, ambitious… *deep sigh* Guess I’ve been having a lot those. Recently dropped out of SewAfrica cause I just wasn’t satisfied with what I was getting. I wanted a more challenging institute that knew the value of quality fashion. SewAfrica did but not to my level of expectation. but Who would have though leaving another institute would inflict so much drama, question my idea of “the perfect Fashion life.” Each move seems like a step backwards, running around in circles. Is a proper institute Too much to ask for? Does the idea of money always have to overrule the idea of following your dreams. At this point in time, I pray to God that I find inspiration to move and restoring my joy to want to continue to create garments, sketching forth new idea’s and the thrill of new things. I hope God even hears my cry.
She is more than just my best friend but my soldier of love. Keep shining and Keep Loving. Happy Birthday @lobzinlee

"It’s during the toughest times of your life that you’ll get to see the true colours of the people who say they care about you. Notice who sticks around and who doesn’t, and be grateful to those who leave you, for they have given you the room to grow in the space they abandoned, and the awareness to appreciate the people who loved you when you didn’t feel lovable."
Bottom line: Be okay with giving the gift of your absence to those who do not appreciate and respect your presence.
