“You can have anything you want in life, if you dress for it.” Seipati Sihle Mkuzo Magape

“You can have anything you want in life, if you dress for it.” Seipati Sihle Mkuzo Magape

Seipati Sihle Mkuzo Magape is a feisty and talented Street Culture Clothing designer for Barcoded_a . Want to know more about her entrepreneurial journey? See our interview below:

Hi Sihle! What do you love about being an entrepreneur?

What I love about being an entrepreneur is the fact that I get to create my own opportunities, destiny, develop and sell products and services I love.  Mostly making a difference in the process, I get to stand up for what I believe in. Affect change in people’s thoughts and actions.

What are your biggest challenges at work?

Well … I have a few. There are not enough funds for fashion and distribution and this plays a huge role in the business. Also, at times the availability of fabric can be challenge.

You can anything you want in life, if you dress for itDo you have any favourite quotes to share with us?

I have four quotes that I personally live by:

 

  • “You can have anything you want in life, if you dress for it.”
  • “Clothes mean nothing until someone lives in them.”
  •  “Fashion is the armour to survive the reality of everyday life.”
  •  “I like my money right where I can see it , hanging in my closet.”

Where do you see yourself in five years time?

I want and will see my brand being named next to some of the greatest street brands, be it locally or internationally. I want my brand to be the people brand. I’d like to see insane queues where no one wants to be without a Barcoded_a realised design.

You can anything you want in life, if you dress for itWhat’s your biggest hope for South Africa?

Educations for all that live in South Africa regardless of whatever path you choose to take. I believe when one is educated enough, nothing can stop you from making it.  Let’s invest more in ourselves, in our products and In our own art. We are a very rich country when it comes to entrepreneurship – therefore lets all get educated so we can do better and claim back what’s ours. Knowledge is power and that will never be unfashionable.
