According to Ramashala, their products are skin-friendly and caters mostly to African skin types but their eye shadows and lipstick are versatile.

“People tend to buy the brand instead of looking at the quality of the makeup. The most important thing is the quality, not the brand,” she said.

Dainty Frocks, another brand which started six years ago, showcased their clothing designs.

“We use a lot of African print and modernise it. We have two stores, one in Melville and another one in Durban,” said Leonora Vundla.
