Self-taught Motswana fashion designer for AnshiNeo Garments, Neo Anshi Oabile has completed a challenge of making 24 garments under eight different themes.  The project was shot by seven different local photographers from May 1, to May 24, 2021.

 “I have been doing a series of sharing an outfit a day across my social media platforms. This project was meant to do something unique and help both me and the photographers put our work out there. But due to financial issues we couldn’t sponsor all the posts for the coverage we wanted,” she told Arts and Culture in an interview.

Oabile admitted that business had been bad since the year 2021 began and she found herself drowning in depression.  “I thought I was a failure because I had messed up with school and would have no achievement at age 24. I had always looked forward to my 24th birthday because I thought it would be an iconic day to celebrate 24 years of age on the 24th day of the month having 24 hours of the day to just celebrate my life.  I wanted something unique hence the idea of 24 outfits for my 24th birthday to share on social media every day from May 1 till May 24,”she revealed.
