FASHION // SARTISTS slaves and believe in their personal styles then the culture will progress. What are the five things that inspire you as a creative and how do they inspire you? There are a lot of things that inspire us. The most is people; people inspire us in different ways. We love going to the CBD just to look at people from different backgrounds and lifestyles, also talking to them and learning their stories. Also we love research from books, images, music and cultural references. What goals do you hope to have achieved within the period of ten years? Finishing our sports series, create a book from it and also exhibit the work worldwide. We also want to create other body of work. Most importantly, keep on following our passion and keeping the love for it. Our greatest wish though is for people to be able to spot the new Kabelo & Wanda and use our legacy to help them to nurture their talent and do better from what we are doing, to better the lifestyle culture. When all is said done, what do you think will be Sartist’s legacy in the Jozi culture & lifestyle landscape? As Sartists, what we doing is not for ourselves, we doing it for everyone and to grow the lifestyle culture locally. We want to create opportunities for the youth and kids coming after us, we are only 22 but we feel old. We trying to crash out the stereotype that young people are not ready to work for themselves or with big companies. What words of wisdom do you usually give to young creatives? We still young also, we learn from the older brothers and they always tell us «Don’t compromise and do what you love, you’ll be happy for the rest of your life».
