Tomi Rikhotso (27), is a Soweto born fashion designer whose passion for art is taking the industry by storm with his striking creations. Rikhotso is the founder of Tomi R Creations, a brand he founded in 2013 with a vision of producing fine African Couture designs. He describes fashion as a platform to express his creativity through fabrics by making people look great.
"Tomi R represents Fire, Power and Dominance. There's something unique about my personality and that ultimately influences the way my work turns out. I'm shy but I love it when I come across clients who want to stand out, that's when my true self and ultimately creativity is revealed," says Rikhotso.
