Last Sunday Thando’s held a soft launch for their new line of Thando’s Bridal flats. “Brides should be comfortable while remaining stylish on their special day” says Thando’s Co-founders, Taffi and JG Ayodele. Thando’s are lightweight, ballerina flats that fold up and can fit inside a small handbag. They come packaged in a drawstring bag that can double as a makeup purse or wristlet.
