His name is Thapelo Letsebe, a young aspiring stylist and blogger who is absolutely obsessed with fashion and loves looking good (his words not mine) He lives in Gaborone( i call them Ma Gaborone).
I have known Thapelo for a couple of years now, i have seen his style evolve, change and grow over the years. Just like the rest of us we go through stages of experimenting trying to find what our personal style really is and i feel like he is at that point where has has finally found it, he knows what works for him and i LOVE IT
He also hosts an entertainment radio segment that explores fashion and all its elements every Wednesday morning at 10:50 only on Yarona Fm, so be sure to tune in, follow him on Twitter @Thapelo_Letsebe, Like Pap And Fashion on Facebook and check out his Blog YARN HIPSTER
Here is a few things he had to say :).
Describe your personal style and its influences/inspiration.
Wow!!I am really all over the place.Today I would rock the grunge look and the following day I'd be in my tribal prints.I guess I just love to experiment.My inspirations come from a lot of things like the street style in New York,European lanky male models and yeah,what's hot for the season.
What would you say to someone seeking fashion advice?
Do not follow a trend just because its considered to be hot.Rock something you feel comfortable in and with a hint of your personality!!!
Are there any words you would like to give to young people trying to achieve something in fashion
Don't do it for the fame or the money.Love what you do and the rest will follow!it sounds corny but very true.
