Designer Collen Monnakgotla prepares for Soweto Fashion Week

The South African township of Soweto is currently hosting its own fashion week.

The three-day event is a platform for upcoming, often struggling, designers to showcase their work to boutique owners and potential investors.

Among those whose designs are gracing the catwalk this year is self-taught designer Collen Monnakgotla, who runs his own company, Freshwear.

The BBC caught up with him as he put the finishing touches to his range.
