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 African Studies at International Fashion Showcase in an installation which takes an introspective look at contemporary South Africa, merging its rich cultural history with a forward looking, global approach.

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