SOWETO, SOUTH AFRICA MAY 13: Sibu FDB, (c) a young designer part of the collective group Smarteez relaxing at home on May 19, 2013 in Rockville in Soweto, South Africa. Known for their street style fashion they have shown at South Africa Fashion Week and they primarily sell their garments to private clients who visit the workshop. They are trying to break through in the fashion industry in South Africa. Soweto today is a mix of old housing and newly constructed townhouses. The population in Soweto is estimated to be around one million people. 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)
