I’m a Johannesburg based fashion designer and I’ve been running my successful business for more than 4 years (@caraci_clothing on Instagram) I have a degree in Marketing and Entrepreneurship and from college I went to pursue my passion for fashion through Sew Africa short courses academy. I make creative street wear and I cut, and sew all the clothes we sell from our business. "Warm, colourful and effervescent – these are some of the words that do not only describe Sebo Marobela but also his brand, Caraci Clothing. The budding entrepreneur and designer made the bold decision to turn his hobby and extend his fashion sense and colourful personality into a thriving and sought-after fashion house" from a recent newspaper article.
