What does your company do?

We are a Custom and Ready-to-Wear fashion brand with one aim: to empower strong, independent men and women through timeless pieces on a daily bases and events on their calendars.

What is your biggest success?

Showing casing a collection of our ready to wear garments in California USA in 2021. Had the privilege to work with Technoserve and under them got an opportunity to be mentored and had great business advisors and won a business grant for my company in 2022 and in 2023. Last year I had the opportunity to sell some of our garments in the USA again. This year I have the honor to collaborate with YouTube sensation Mandy Nhlangisa and 2 ineradicable women who are finalists of Mrs South Africa Kehilwe Sibanda and Megon Simelane.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

The biggest hurdle for me was capital for my business to help push and getting more equipment for my business and that helped with getting the major things out of the way.
