She talked about how her maternity dress, which was designed and handmade by Asanda Madyibi, paid homage to her culture as a proud Zulu woman. Researching the customs that were practiced and how they were practiced back in the day, she shared some interesting facts and executed them very well, all with the help of Asanda.

"I had so many ideas of how I wanted to reveal my pregnancy and as usual I was looking for something that hadn't be done before.
