I had quick Q&A with Rache’ - winner of our Cruelty-Free Beauty Giveaway ♥️
What do you study currently?
I’m currently studying fashion, I’m a third year fashion student at Cput.
What does fashion mean to you?
Fashion has always been a part of me, since I was a kid. If it wasn’t for my mother raising me the way she did, I never would’ve loved fashion the way I do now. Long story short, I wasn’t spoiled when I was a child. My mom never bought me clothing for my dolls, I had to make my own, that’s how I fell in love with the process of garment making. Fashion is the way I can give back to people, mentally. Making women feel so so beautiful, giving them that push in self-confidence is what I live for. I love making people happy and if it’s through my passion for fashion, then it makes me happier. My mother always said; “Please don’t study psychology because you will always get too attach, risking your happiness for someone else’s.” That’s what I do, working day and night through, living on coffee so that this dress could put a smile on a young girls face. That’s what I work for a smile, and it makes me happy.
What inspires you?
Growing up, I had this book with famous celebrity pictures, woman and men. I use to always say as a young child;” When I grow up, I want to be this beautiful too” (being bullied motivated me to create this book). This book opened my eyes and now everywhere I go I see the beauty of people and it makes me sad when people say negative things about themselves. People around me inspire me. I wish women could see what I see and if it takes my garments to make them feel confident and beautiful in their own skin and nature, then I’ll keep creating until can’t no more.
