Kavezedi's surreal career in fashion

From using someone's work space to finally having something of her own, self-taught fashion designer Cassandra Kavezedi has revealed that her journey into the world of fashion has been unlike any other.

While the distinctiveness in her designs do the trick Kavezedi, also known as Cassandra Black. The stylist, recalls how challenging her pursuit for success in fashion design was because of no resources.

“When starting this designing thing it was really hard because I had no machines so I had to use someone else’s workshop for free to make clothes or finish off my orders. During this process, I went through the most and I had a mental breakdown at some point because there were times where I would stay home doing nothing, as all the machines at the workshop were occupied,” she told Arts & Culture.

Kavezedi said as a result she did not stand a chance to sew and would consequently lose customers.

“Even if I told customers my situation they wouldn’t understand but God made a way. Therefore, with the little money I was making when using someone’s workshop I saved up and bought my own sewing machine. This now made things a bit easier for me because I am now using my own equipment,” she indicated.

  Looking back the 23-year-old passionate woman from Mahalapye proudly revealed that she is a self-taught fashion designer who started as her own stylist. Back then

she said the way she would dress as a young teenage girl said a lot about her.

“The way I would mix up clothes one would tell as an individual that this girl knows how to dress. Also, I was so confident about it because my friends and family would hype me up and compliment me a lot, which made me believe in myself,” she highlighted.  She then started customising her own clothes making them look unique.  “I really loved standing out and I wanted to embrace my uniqueness and that’s what inspired me to start making clothes. I managed to work with King Vanderbilt, the founder of Empire and his models, which I dressed for the SKY Magazine cover and also managed to get myself a very smart brand ambassador who goes by the name of Carl Peter,” she commented on how she managed to get the approval of the local fashion flock.  She said before the pandemic hit the world last year, a lot was going to be achieved like doing collaborations with some of the local designers.

“Corona happened so, ever since then the business started becoming a bit slow, but like they all say we’ll bounce back.”
