Style Alert SA, game changer in new-era vintage fashion

Style Alert SA founder, Thuli Mola, has advised entrepreneurs to start small instead of borrowing large sums of money from banks to fund their business ventures.

702/Cape Talk's Eusebius McKaiser (standing in for Redi Tlhabi) spoke to her about why she decided to take the plunge and pursue her passion for her online fashion store with quaint vintage finds..

Her turning point came after she was retrenched. She then dedicated her time to broadening her knowledge of the fashion industry and pushed herself into making her dreams come true.

In the time I was retrenched, I got to know the depth of the fashion industry. It's not just about being a designer.

I was the first person to start pop-ups then in Joburg, the response was amazing.
