It collaborates with these personal brands through a product of merchandise where it makes T-shirts printed with the personal brand's face portrait picture, and every portrait picture of the personal brand has a story that elaborates the context behind the image. Recently Pictures Of The Pictures Initiative is in collaboration with Nthabiseng Muriel Mamoepa, she's personally styled by David Tlale, and she's been traveling the world showcasing her influence in the fashion industry including countries like France, United Kingdom and more."

The collaboration with Nthabiseng  has a story that elaborates context behind nthabiseng's image on the T-shirt, and the story is entitled Truth About Darkness and the story will be released on a book entitled "Pictures that tell a story book" authored by Township Rockstar, and Masesi Tsotetsi as one of the TR writers. We can say now is the time for people to see how pictures can say thousands of words through portraying the contemporary of fashion, and life.
