ESCAPE TO FASHION WITH TEBO DAMBE
"I enjoy being Creative and being an Artist. It's really what I love, I put my heart in all the designs and craftsmanship because I am passionate about execution and perfection. I love soft fabrics, detailed and textured fabrics. I love color and I love sophisticated looks with a bit of sex appeal, appreciating the beauty of a woman and the sexyness of a man. I love to create men's clothes using womenswear as an inspiration. I mostly love pieces that make people stop and say, where did you get that? who made that? I use clothes as a metaphor to speak confidence out of you without you saying a word. I want the clothes to be your voice while you walk quietly in the room knowing your worth, everywhere you go they stop and stare from your head to the toe !!", smiles Dambe.
