5 Minute Interview with Thebe Magugu
I feel like Fashion is a very big industry, it’s very broad, so I feel like it is about time we do something that gives back to our communities, we can afford to, we have to.
Although these are the same pieces I have been showcasing at the show from my “Africa Studies” collection, it is nice to see them being worn by actual people and for a good cause.
