SOWETO, SOUTH AFRICA : Sibu FDB, (c) a young designer part of the collective group Smarteez at with colleagues in front of Mandela murals close to Regina Mundi church in Soweto, South Africa. Known for their street style fashion they had a great opportunity recently to show their township inspired designs at South African fashion week. 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. © Per-Anders Pettersson / LUZphoto
