Young local designer determined to take the industry by storm

DENNILTON – Jane Ngwanatheku Makopole, a 37 year-old an upcoming fashion designer in Dennilton, Magakadimeng section outside Groblersdal is a force to be reckoned with.

Jane said she started sewing beats at home and selling them to the community for two years between 2015 and 2017.

“After I realized that I have a fashion talent, I attended a sewing school full time, for two years, just to make sure that I acquire the necessary skills,” smiled the artistic Jane.

The upcoming local fashion designer says after completing the sewing school programme, she started working at home to date.

“I sew wedding dresses and suits, winter clothing, traditional dresses and T-shirts for men and women, kids’ clothes and traditional attire,” said Jane.

Jane said she was inspired by the world renowned David Tlale, who she one day aspires to be like, when she saw his fashion shows on television.

She says fashion design is an industry that which stroke her as she grew up but initially she wanted to become a teacher and she couldn’t because of other challenges.

“I am still young and I believe in myself. I am currently attending programmes to acquire fashion design skills. I am currently working on a show which will be for this community called Bolao Fashion Show,” added Jane.

The fashion designer says it is not easy in the industry because not everyone will appreciate your designs while others do.

“I want to see myself having a big factory and open a school to teach young people how to sew and make the products available at established clothing outlets. I have 20 models who are going to showcase my designs during the Bolao Fashion Show,”
