Soweto Gets Dolled Up for Inaugural Fashion Week

Last week, one of South Africa’s most famous but most impoverished townships got a chance to show off its creativity and rich history in Soweto's first fashion week.

"It's a great opportunity. It's a long time coming. There's a lot of talent that's going on in the townships," said 29-year-old designer Tebogo Lehlabi, according to the Associated Press.
