Words: Tshiamo Seape
Lukhanyo Mdingi realises the power if his potential with the release of his latest collection and a feature in Vogue Italia. The collection, entitled “Soulful” combines a number of influences, most notably East Asian fashion sensibilities.
Soulful features a number of standout pieces from coats to tops to elevated leisure wear. Every piece is created with the highest attention to detail, quality and craftsmanship. The designer has also opted for locally sourced materials with an emphasis on sustainability. The stark use of black an white gives the shoot a minimalist feel that forces attention onto the clothes where appreciation is levied on every garment.
Lukhanyo is the next in a growing number of South African designers proving with every successive project that the next generation of creatives are well and truly on their way to global stardom.
