Many of his followers congratulated him for growing his brand. “Congratulations Tshepo, wishing you all the success you deserve and hope to see many more stores,” commented Hinal Devchand.
Fifi Peters also complimented Mohlala for his hard work. She said: “Shout out to Tshepo Jeans that’s set to open its flagship store at Hyde Park Corner, which is owned by JSE listed property group Hyprop @TshepoJeans.
“Surprisingly, Hyprop says a number of companies have opened new stores across its malls in SA, despite the Covid19 lockdowns.”
Tshepo joins the likes of Thula Sindi, Laduma Ngxokolo, and David Tlale- who all opened new stores this year.
Sindi opened two Africa Rise stores, one in Johannesburg CBD and recently, at Menlyn, Pretoria- while Tlale’s is at Melrose Arch. Ngxokolo, the founder of Maxhosa took his luxury brand to the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.
Mohlala was inspired by the three most important women in his life to start the brand- hence the logo is a pronged crown, representing his mother, grandmother, and aunt.
