Thebe Magugu is a young up and coming South African designer who is making waves as the very first South African designer to win the LVMH prize which is the most coveted award for young designers.
Thebe is known for his incredible work that celebrates women and their femininity, strength and vulnerability. This young designer always includes subtle political messages which he executes creatively and flawlessly despite its challenging nature.
His self-entitled brand stands out with themes of juxtaposition, commentary on social issues as well as creative designs with feminine colours and cuts. One of his famous pieces is the Girl seeks Girl dress which is a commentary on gender-based violence.
With so much creative talent, ambition and potential, the sky is the limit for this 25-year-old Kimberly-born designer.
