Thebe Magugu – South Africa

Thebe Magugu is a womenswear designer based in Johannesburg whose work continually seeks new ways of presenting women and their role within South African society. His designs are sleek and forward looking, with motifs from the continent’s storied past. He will present a collection titled Art History at International Fashion Showcase in an installation which draws on South African contemporary art to question the politics of aesthetics at play in the fashion industry.

Thebe will also produce an accompanying zine to share the platform of International Fashion Showcase with his peers.
