CULTURALLY FASHIONABLE- I AM PROUD OF MY SOTHO CULTURE


In the last blog I wrote about the Zulu, Xhosa, Venda and Tsonga/Shangaan cultural wear or should I call it traditional fashion. I am a fashion designer, stylist,  writer and have been hosted a Fashion Expert on a radio show. I love anything that is clothes, shoes, accessories, hats and all that adds to how a person looks. Oh ya I also love interior decor.

Yesterday at our church, Grace Bible Church in Soweto we were celebrating the Sotho (Basotho and Bapedi) and Tswana (Batswana) cultures. All these weeks we have been wearing and celebrating all other South African cultures. This day we had the privilege in showing off our Basotho traditional wear. I saw more people as compared to the past weeks dressed up in the full gear. What a beautiful blessing we have as South Africans. How I wish we could just embrace wearing tradition not only for occasions such as weddings or Heritage month. Me and my hubby are making traditional clothes part of our wardrobe. Watch this space and follow the trend as I post our pictures in coming months.

The Sotho consists of Bapedi and Basotho. These three ladies are wearing the Bapedi dresses:
