Nothing beats the rush a woman feel when they look in the mirror and love what they see. Meet our beautiful fashion lover Maria Ramugondo, 21, currently doing her final year in Environmental studies at the University of Venda.
FW: Are you a fashion lover?
MR: Yes, I am a fashion lover- fashion is basically one of the good things about life. The thought of putting clothes together and dressing up excites me (…and she laughs)
FW: Why do you love fashion?
MR: I am a woman who loves to look good every day and all the time…and fashion gives me the opportunity to dress for my body. Most importantly, I love that with the right sense of style you can change from office girl to funky all the way to sexy lady…
FW: Why do you think it’s important to look your best at all times?
MR: I am a young lady looking for success, and looking good all the time builds confidence and makes people take you serious. Truth is people may forget your name and what you said but they never forget what you were wearing…
FW: How long does it take you to decide what to wear every morning?
MR: Growing up I was always late, because of the time I spent trying to decide what to wear in the morning. This always use to make me seem disorganized. Now, every night before I go to bed I make sure I have put together at least two outfits that I can wear the next day. So it doesn’t take long for me to get ready.
FW: Are you a trend setter or follower?
MR: I am a trend follower, I am always on the lookout of who is wearing what, and how they are wearing it- and if I like it I go and get it. As long as I feel comfortable in it.
FW: Is there anyone that inspires your dress sense?
MR: Pokello Nare and Uyanda Mbuli are the two women who never disappoint…I get a lot my dressing ideas from these two ladies. They definitely know how to look good for every occasion.
FW: What should every woman have this winter?
MR: A pair of knee high boots- they go with almost everything.
FW: What are your winter colours?
MR: Cream and brown are warm colours that enjoy playing with in winter. They make very good winter statements and set a different trend from the ordinary black and white.
FW: Would you rather spend your Saturday afternoon shopping or watching a movie?
MR: Well, I don’t even have to think twice about that…shopping is more than a hobby for me, it is a beautiful adventure.
FW: How often do you go shopping?
MR: Mmmm…every Friday, I make sure I go to the mall to check out what’s new and trending.
FW: If you were given a choice to do one of the following, what would you choose? To do your hair, nails, buy a handbag or of get a new pair of shoes.
MR: Hahaah…I would buy a handbag. I love styling handbags, I really wouldn’t mind having thousand handbags in my room.
