A day in Jeppestown

Photographed by Lebogang Tlhako.

The home of hustlers with ambitions of upward mobility. The quaint suburb may be marred by deteriorating buildings and socio-economic issues, but the hustler’s spirit is alive and as one enters Jeppes, the energy surges through the body like electricity. Playing with luxury South African couture pieces offers a portal of escapism, turning an ordinary moment into the extraordinary, evoking fashion transformative power and inspiring a desire toward living of the grandest version of self.
