A model backstage before a show dressed in of the collective group Smarteez outfits at South African Fashion week in Johannesburg, South Africa. Known for their street style fashion they had a great opportunity to showcase their township inspired designs. Soweto today is a mix of old housing and newly constructed townhouses. A new hungry black middle-class is growing steadily. Many residents work in Johannesburg but the last years many shopping malls have been built, and people are starting to spend their money in Soweto. (Photo by: Per-Anders Pettersson)
