‘What inspires you?’ This is one of the most asked questions during a new season. I speak for the Glamour team, and evidently, a few fashion brands this season, in saying, “Freedom.” The cry for it, the experience of it, the thrill of it. You need only scroll through social media alone to see how much more liberated women are today – especially in the way we express ourselves. We’re much more vocal about what we want – from our relationships to equal pay and in refusing for our style, hair and bodies to be policed. We are now, more than ever, uncompromising about what and who we choose without fear of judgement. We are driving our own narratives and shattering the glass ceiling, as is evidenced in the diverse South…

the liberating power of fashion

DO YOU THINK THE FREEDOM TO WEAR WHAT YOU WANT IS TRULY WHERE WE ARE TODAY? This particular question has many layers. We have women living in countries where they’re forced to wear something for culture or religion. We have women who want to dress a certain way but can’t because they don’t want to be harassed while walking down the street. We have women who are living below the poverty line and can’t afford to put clothes on their backs. We have women who seem to have all the means to dress how they please, but once their photo is taken and posted to social media, they’re body shamed or made fun of. In many ways, this goes to show you that we truly are not free to wear what…

designer focus

Glamour: What made you want to venture into the industry? LEBOGANG MOKGOKO: I think, in essence, I’m in love with the art of storytelling and the amount of freedom the industry gives you to create works of art that other individuals can relate to and find appreciation for. G: Have you always had a passion for design? LM: For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been a visual person; taking a particular interest in how something looked. It was only when I attended Pro Arte Alphen Park, a high school in Pretoria that specifically focuses on the arts, that I started to get into art and fashion, and studying the likes of Martin Margiela, Alexander McQueen, Yohji Yamamoto and Hedi Slimane. Learning about these ‘gods’ of the industry inspired me to…
