formerly known as Twsiritswiri, is a designer. I am a Consumer Science teacher so fashion designing is part of my profession. I used to love cooking but after studying Consumer Science I fell in love with fashion design.
She is pursuing a degree in B.sc Consumer Science Education final year.
Mavuso started crocheting when at 10 years old. She was taught by her mom after she saw her trying to learn from one of her books. Her mother started making full garments in 2010 but was lazy back then.
Mavuso started showcasing in fashion shows of Luyengo Campus in 2014. Her first professional assignment was the Eswatini summer fashion week which went very well. And she is looking forward to participate in future fashion shows.
Her favourite part of fashion design is creating something that someone has never thought of. She is inspired by the latest trends in fashion and she likes to challenge herself to crochet instead of sewing.
Crocheting for her is a passion. Someone needs to have passion, patience, and never be afraid to take a challenge. Fashion designing will not always require education as for some people it’s a passion they grew up with. She stays updated through the internet, TV fashion shows, magazines and following celebrities. “I don’t follow any ethics, I just do something that comes to mind at that time. Sometimes I might have a certain design but I finish up with another design,” Mavuso said.
“My greatest strength is patience because crocheting requires a lot of time since its handicraft, I have a passion for this such that whenever I like, I try to make something through crochet. My weaknesses are failing to complete a design and delivering on time,” she emphasised.
