After covering Joburg Autumn/Winter Fashion Week 2015 for AFI, I have seen some serious talent – especially during the AFIfastrack show which showcased 12 young designers. The collection by finalist and LISOF graduate, Thebe Magugu, made my heart skip a few too many beats. The cohesion was impeccable. Sunny culottes, the most luxurious kimono, knits to kill and everything else in between. I want to transform my wardrobe into a Thebe Magugu showroom, and I plan to do so soon.
Thebe is one of the four winners from the AFIfastrack show who will go on to intern in the studio of an established designer for three months and will have an opportunity to launch a capsule collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Africa 2015. I will most certainly be rooting for you, Thebe.
