THE BLACK HIPPIE
The Black Hippie is a concept that was established as a result of my friends viewing me as a black, bohemian and spiritual individual. As an individual who has always been artistic and creative, I found myself forgetting about my creative side and rather focusing on other aspects of my life. It was only when I realised the importance of self-love that I found myself gravitating towards being artistic and creative once again. Being artistic and creative has made me focus my attention on fashion. Fashion has enhanced the way I look at myself and the way I fully embrace and love myself.
Fashion, through the intrinsic relationship that it has with us, has changed, and shaped my life in more ways than you can imagine. It has created a personal connection between myself and the people that I come across daily. Stronger bonds and relationships have been formed through fashion and I am sure that more bonds will be formed.
The Black Hippie Fashion Studio has immensely contributed to my confidence and self-esteem. Not only have I been able to express my personality, it has allowed me to also express my style. When wearing the clothes that presents my personality, identify and mood, my confidence is enhanced. I am not only empowered, but I am also in touch with my inner self.
Through The Black Hippie Fashion Studio, I have been able to fall in love with myself all over again. I have grown and evolved as a person and have become the Mmadika Moloi I was truly meant to be. Through my brand and a change in my wardrobe, I am able to allow other people to fall in love with themselves all over again because it is only when your cup is full that you’re able to love others.
As Wayne Dyer says, “If you don’t love yourself, nobody will. Not only that, you won’t be good at loving anyone else. Loving starts with the self.”
