YLA April Edition

Don’t miss the April issue of YourLuxury Africa – featuring luxury fashion label Maxhosa Africa’s journey to sustainability.

By YourLuxury

This month we welcome acclaimed designer Laduma Ngxokolo to YourLuxury as our guest fashion director. The talented creative has had his work exhibited around the world – from the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. to New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) – has appeared at international fashion weeks and has a label, MaXhosa Africa – a Xhosa-inspired luxe fashion brand – that has captured the hearts of South Africans.

Laduma believes sustainability and luxury can be intertwined and his new collection, which aptly launches on Earth Day (22 April) at Nirox Sculpture Park in Johannesburg, epitomises the concept of slow fashion. With the ethical sourcing of raw materials, the use of local communities for manufacturing and a commitment to quality with the aim of not having to replace garments, the MaXhosa Africa winter collection is mindful and intentional.

As with a creative of Laduma’s calibre, the journey is ongoing and the brand constantly evolving.

“We’re pretty much educating ourselves – reimagining our culture, teaching our consumers about sustainable fashion and reconnecting with our world,” says Laduma. Read more about his vision and for a fashion feast, courtesy of Laduma and the MaXhosa Africa team, in this April issue of YourLuxury Africa.

We hope you enjoy this fashion-focused issue.
