While we all know there can only ever be one Sho Madjozi, we’ve learned a thing or two from her that can elevate just about any wallflower to fashion icon status.

 5. Your heritage matters, not just on heritage day

Most people dust off their traditional attire for weddings and heritage day and neglect them the rest of the year. While we all agree that we’ve inherited some fabulous fashion, not everyone can fit cultural appreciation into their everyday wardrobe as well as she does, but we can give it a try.
