Fashion show virginity broken

Being a big lover of fashion and style, it may come as a shock to my friends to know that before yesterday, I had never attended a fashion show. Yesterday I went to the National Youth Development Agency(NYDA) Fashion show in Mdantsane, held at the Mdantsane Sun. It was the first ever fashion held in the township, and boy was I chuffed to be part of it. My fashion designer sister Nondwe Mpendulo was one of the designers who showcased   their collections. The collections ranged from African traditional wear, evening wear, street style and corporate gear, all designed by women from in and around East London.  Models were young women from Mdantsane. I must say though, though I've never been on any other fashion show, this one wasn't well organised. The designer say they didn't have enough time for fittings with the models, and the NYDA organisers only brought them 8 models for more than 30 garments.With that said, the clothes were just disgustingly DELISH!! here are the pics..
