- Shauwn Mkhize recently defended her fashion choices and sense of style while being interviewed on The Morning Show
- The star went on eTV and answered questions about the clothing she wears and displays online and how it sometimes attracts trolls
- MamKhize mentioned that she gets her outfits straight from the runway and that she makes sure to use the confidence she got from her mother
Shauwn Mkhize is known for her Instagram profile being full of motivational messages and showing off her extravagant fashion choices.
The star recently defended her sense of style while being interviewed on eTV's The Morning Show and explained how she does not set store by others' opinions and takes inspiration for her clothes from many places.
Shauwn said she often gets criticised by internet trolls for her flamboyant and colourful clothing but also said she lives for herself and not others.
MamKhize explained that she gets her clothes right off the designer's rack and that often people don't like the style because they haven't seen it yet. The star said:
"Most people couldn't understand my style because I would have things that are still on the runway. By the time people are used to it, I am done and over it."
The South African celeb also added that she does not let the haters get her down because it would be a disservice to her mother. Shauwn's mom, Florence, was an anti-apartheid activist and passed her confidence down to her daughter. Mamkhize said:
"I'm forever a confident person because my mom was overconfident about herself."
In her usual inspirational way of speaking, she added:
"You can't live for people, what I have decided to do, I have decided to live for myself and whatever that makes me happy I go for it."

Shauwn Mkhize recently used social media to remind her followers of the importance of perseverance when going through tough times.
The star shared that she had recently been defeated by life but that the most important lesson was to learn how to get up and keep going after being knocked down.
MamKhize urged Mzansi to also heed the lesson while people battle everything from personal issues to a global pandemic.
The celebrity wrote a lengthy caption to get her message across and seemed determined to make sure that her fans knew everyone gets defeated once in a while. She urged Mzansi to keep going and continue chasing dreams.
Part of MamKhize's caption read:
"I might have been defeated yesterday but we took lesson from what has happened and we are already building up from what has happened taking it to the next match. I take defeat personally but I don’t give up easily for as long as the race is still on I am not going to give up now , it’s okay to lose the battle but you must win the war"
Her words seem more poignant as Mzansi goes through another difficult stage in battling the Covid-19 pandemic.
