Thembeka Yadah was born and raised in Escort, in a small village called Loosekop which is located within the province of Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa. She completed her basic education in her home village, then she later went to study further a course in fashion designing at a higher institution.
While studying fashion designing, she began composing business plans and working on launching her own exclusive ready-to-wear fashion brand called Yadah Exclusive Designs. Before her business launch, she was part of both local and international major fashion shows, and got involved with various charitable works. Thembeka is currently a mentor at Hope for African children and she heads her own organizations.
The love and passion that Thembeka has is credited to her Mother, who she calls her Mamhlongo. But she also often speaks well of her father, so she defiantly a daddy’s girl.
She is a woman with endless dreams. She has put her village (Loosekop) on the map for her great achievements within the fashion industry.
