SOWETO, SOUTH AFRICA APRIL 10: Sibu Sithole (r), a young designer part of the group Smarteez work on a collection in his workshop on April 9, 2011 in Jabulani section of Soweto, South Africa. They prepared for a show at Johannesburg Fashion week. A great opportunity for them to show 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)
