His work is already international because Cassper Nyovest wore his design to this year’s BET Awards. His journey has not been an easy one. He worked as a sales assistant all the while attending fashion school. His design aesthetic has been described as Afro – punk although for me there’s a calmness to his designs that is usually not associated with punk, it’s more of a “African Minimalist”.

Sibusiso is anything but conventional, his use of fabrics like hessian (used mostly as coffee bean bags) is testament to that. I look forward to more from him and I definitely can’t wait for his SS19 collection.

You want a team that not only knows the organisation’s culture but one that also respects it and all the other individuals that are part of it. Continue reading “7 things not to do at the workplace”
You don’t have to have money or access to a stylist to look good. The people whose style we admire all have one thing in common, they know their bodies. Although it’s our genes that determine how we carry our fat, the general appearance of our bodies can be altered with diet and weight loss. If you’ve noticed, it’s harder to tell what a slender person’s body type is and that’s because slender women look more similar to each other than the opposite.
