There is a new traditional fashion label currently under consideration by the Sewing and Fashion Design Team affiliated to Molepo Traditional Dance Cooperative Limited.
A lot has been said by people who follow our social media pages(i.e. Facebook & Twitter)
that there is a need for more products to be introduced to our inventory of beads.
After we posted pictures of self styled Northern Sotho traditional beads on Facebook,
we received messages from a number of potential future clients indicating their desire
to order and purchase traditional clothing.
Based on those words of encouragement and well wishes, I began to explore the idea
of a Sewing and Fashion Design artistic programme which incorporates technical and
creative training and product development.
At the time, nothing seemed impossible as I realized there was an unexplored market
in the area where the cooperative is located. I started off by encouraging, at times
persuading; Tebogo Molepo(also my sibling) to consider enrolling for a sewing and
fashion design course at one of the schools in Polokwane.
Tebogo enrolled for the course in 2015 and has since graduated from the first phase
of the training.
