I recently caught up with talented designer Sindi Serape, who is taking SA by storm! Do you know that he was one of my students when I used to lecture? Superproud!

Catch the story below:

The African Fashion International (AFI) named young designer Sindisile Mbobo as the winner of the 2019 Fastrack programme at the recent Cape Town Fashion Week 2019.
The Fastrack programme is currently in its eighth year, and has seen the likes of Hugo Fleur, Thebe Magugu and Rich Mnisi compete on the platform. As winner of the AFI Fastrack award Sindi Serape will have access to Fashion Week runways in South Africa and Morocco and receives a R50,000 cash prize to start his business.

We were interested in determining what drives and inspires him.

Did you catch my feature in the Northern Bulletin paper? Mika and I discussed my ‘Teen Event’ – an event aimed at developing well groomed, confident, well rounded teens.
Parents and aspiring models often approach me in the hope to assit them to join a lucrative agency, so I decided to start a school where they can have the freedom to grow, find themselves, build confidence and most importantly, make a difference in their community. I don’t develop influencers, I develop impactors.

This summer, some of the biggest trends are ruffles and tiers.
The key is to keep it simple. Ruffles are beautiful, but can also accentuate your frame, so be careful where the ruffles fall on your outfit. It may add some extra weight in places you don’t really need.

I opted for ruffles from the hip down, as this adds curves to my skinny frame.

Chambray and denims are heavier fabrics which are great for structure (especially shaping the ruffles) but if your are curvier, there are gorgeous ruffled skirts in georgettes and chiffons which drape beautifully!

Over the last few months, I coached the Mr and Miss Parow High school finalists.

What an incredible journey its been, to witness them transform from teens to young men and women.

There were no more deserving winners than Natasha and Jordan. They wowed the judges with their dedication, character, poise and personality.

It was an honour to coach and be ‘judge’ these remarkleable men and woman.

A huge congratulations to Miss Kelly Mckenzie and Mr Rickus Swanepoel for creating this ‘showcase’. It was a pageant of note!

Next year promises to be even more spectacular! Watch the space ladies and gentlemen!

It is always an honour to be featured in any media, be it print or any other platforms. There are so many phenonimal women, who do amazing work, and I am humbled being celebrated in this manner. Mika Williams wrote a story based on my career, achievements and community and charity.

We often rank our self worth based on unrealistic standards, which we will never be able to achieve. If we can just love ourselves, remind ourselves that our scars are proof that we survived, and focus on our strengths, we will be stronger, healthier women, who impact the next generation.

Thank you for such an amazing story Mika!
