Posh! Oh My Gosh was this year's theme at the Durban July Horse Races. My clients did not want something Avant Garde or out of theordinary. They wanted garments they will surely wear again.

The two Flowers: Mbali (flower) and Florina (flower)

My friend Florina Moerane, whom I call Flawless Flo because of her flawless skin and character came with her friend Mbali Nkosi to have me design dresses for them. Flo gave me the liberty of choosing the design andcolour for her which made work easy for me. Mbali's dress was inspired by another dress she liked but it came out as a ForeverFaith Couture original as it was nowhere close to the other dress. The main thing she wanted was a one-sleeved dress.

Flo's dress was a deep orange peplum (posh) dress with an animal print flip under the peplum(Oh my gosh!) and Mbali's dress was a one-sleeved dress (Posh) made of a stretchy-ribbed gold-touched fabric that had a detacheable chiffon peplum and animal print belt (Oh my gosh!). The ladies really looked couturegeous in their ForeverFaith Couture orignals. Flo even told me she had  people take photos of her endlessly. All glory to God!

Flo's back of her dress was mostly admired and I bet she had one of the popular backs in Durban! The dress had buttons covered with the animal print fabric (Posh! Oh my Gosh!)

Well since some of my clients never send me pictures as they promised, I took the dress to Flo for fitting and had a couple of snapshots of her the day before the event.

Flawless is she not?

When Nomsa Ntshingila called me to make an appointment for me to design her traditional seshoeshoe dress I first went to her Facebook profile in order to have an idea of who I will be meeting. I was avoiding the embarassment of realizing she is someone I have met face to face before since we go to the same church. Now because Facebook does not give you an individual's details like height, I was wowwed by this tall lanky model-height lady who walked in with her friend who is almost as short as me.I must admit, I have dressed people taller than me but not as tall as Nomsa. I even asked her if she was a model and learned she was before and prior modelling she was a basketball player.

Ok, why this whole biography on this lady? Well besides her height I was amazed by her optimistimistic excitement in coming to ForeverFaith Couture to get her dress designed by me. With the help of God obviously as I can only do things through Christ. She spoke so well about my work she has seen. There is nothing as inspiring and motivating as a client having trust in my work. It makes designing, cutting and sewing for her easy.

Nomsa wanted a peplum dress in Seshoeshoe (Sesotho traditional fabric) for a family event all the way in the Free State. I mean my garments travel far and more than I do in a period of just a month. How great is our God putting me on the world stage in His own devine way?

 Nomsa said in her own words: " I have never had a dress fit me so good, God bless you Faith." For me, that is an amen and Glory unto the Lord! Thank you Nomsa for letting ForeverFaith Couture dress you.
