Maitele Wawe is one the founders of the fashion line called Fashion Rebels. Fashion Rebels was founded in the year 2012 by Maitele Wawe and Thifhelimbilu Mudau, and Sizophila Dlezi.
The Fashion Rebels are a post-street style Pretoria-based fashion crew united by a shared love for OTT customised thrift wear. The crew was founded by Maitele Wawe and Thifhelimbilu Mudau, with Sizophila Dlezi joining shortly after to complete the trio.
Sick of having to travel to Joburg to be part of the scene, the Fashion Rebels decided to bring the scene to them, by starting The Social Market off the back of their self-styled image. On the first Sunday of the month fashionistas flock from near and far to preen, be seen and flaunt their style at what’s quickly become Pretoria’s most fashionable social event.
Rather than looking to brands and labels for street cred, Maitele and his crew favour originality and innovation when it comes to style aesthetics.
