Dani Ramapele in her dream dress.
“It has always been my dream to wear a pink, beautiful-looking dress,” said Dani Ramalepe, a matric learner from Louis Trichardt. Her dream came true last weekend when she proudly wore her dream dress during a matric farewell function held at Stanford Lake College.
The 18-year-old Ramalepe lives in Louis Trichardt but goes to school at Stanford Lake College near Haenertsburg. She explains that she has been searching for the right design and colour of her dress for some time. She found a Namibian-based designer, Ruberto Scott, on Instagram and told him about her dreams. Scott took her measurements and then came up with the gorgeous design.
The dress was made in her favourite pink fabric and even included diamond inserts. It was a perfect match and fits her well.
Ramalepe was accompanied by her long-time friend, Hosea Muleya, to the matric dance. They have been friends for many years and attended primary school at Ridgeway Independent.
