In an interview with The Voice, the Artist Manager, Fashion blogger and Talent Scout personnel said that the trip to South Africa has exceeded his expectations.
“I got exposed so much to the night life, street fashion and the hippie side of Johannesburg,” he said.
Latty as he is commonly called said that he also got the opportunity to meet with some of the talented fashion designers like the duo called, Adiambo Ndomba who was part of Fashion Without Boarders Event.
“They introduced me to a very talented jeweler called Blessing who has a Jewelry line called @nutCaseActs. His line has been showcased on big stages such as the SA Fashion Week.”
Latty mentioned that his aim was to network and find out about marketing agencies in South Africa that can use local models for their adverts.
“It is time we take our models international like the likes of Kaone Kario.”
