THEBE MAGUGU AW23/24 collection “Folklorics”

Dear Shaded Viewers,

The South African designer Thebe Magugu called his collection “Folklorics” and was inspired by storytelling even to the extent where actual text is on some of the textiles. Colours come from nature and volumes are fluid and comfortable for all shapes and sizes. Due to energy limitations in South Africa, Magugu had to move his production.

Thebe Magugu was the winner of the 2019 LVMH Young Fashion Designer Prize and his star has been rising ever since.
