SOWETO, SOUTH AFRICA MAY 25: Models wait backstage before a fashion show at Soweto Fashion Week on May 25, 2012 in the Kliptown section of Soweto, South Africa. Local emerging designers showed their collections during the three-day event held at the Kliptown hotel. 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)
