BOYDE

" the signature references architecture, interior design, and simplicity "

Menswear fashion brand BOYDE was launched, in 2017, by Samkelo Boyde Xaba, a Johannesburg-based designer who graduated from the Tshwane University of Technology with a National Diploma and B Tech honours degree in Fashion and Design Technology. Specialising in bespoke tailoring and premium ready-to-wear, the signature references architecture, interior design, and simplicity to convey a pared-down minimalism of exceptional quality and fit in line with its sustainable fashion ethos of timeless style.

Gugu by Gugu

" mohair's versatility as a fibre, the beauty of the gentle Angora goat and mohair's vast potential "

Port Elizabeth-raised Gugu Peteni's early childhood love of fabrics and design led to a degree in Fashion Design from the Nelson Mandela University in PE, and resulted in her receiving the accolade of Emerging Creative at the 2018 Design Indaba, as well as securing a place in the first season of Project Runway SA. Her love of mohair's versatility as a fibre, the beauty of the gentle Angora goat and mohair's vast potential to provide a socially-conscious source of income for South Africa, drives her vision to explore new and creative ways of incorporating this fibre into her narrative.

Maklele

" gender-fluid design that reduces resource intensive processes "

Maklele is a menswear brand launched by University of Johannesburg fashion design graduate, Mikhayla Farouk after completing her B Tech degree in 2018. Deeply concerned with sustainable garment making, the label focuses on gender-fluid design that reduces resource intensive processes and the need for excessive variation. "As I started learning more about the industry, my focus became more about sustainable garment manufacture rather than just the physical garment itself," she explains.

Thabo Kopele

" fashion is less about clothing and more about telling a tangible story that will last for generations "

Thabo Kopele launched his menswear brand in 2018. Deeply inspired by art, the 22- year old designer from a small town in the Vaal Triangle, believes that fashion is less about clothing and more about telling a tangible story that will last for generations. After teaching himself to sew whilst still at school, Kopele received a bursary to study fashion design at the prestigious London International School of Fashion (LISOF) in Johannesburg. His inaugural range, The Duxbury Collection, demonstrated the hallmarks of his minimalist signature as well as his creative vision that style must be a mutually supportive interaction between the designer and the environment in which creativity happens.

Xavier Sadan

" an experience that explores the area between soft masculinity and strong femininity "

"Inspire Creativity" is the aesthetic of designer Michael Reid's Xavier Sadan label - an innovative mix of clean design elements and unique construction methods which he sees as a distinctive blend of art and design. Created for bold, multi-faceted women and men who are united by a love of creativity, the collection is unisex although rooted in menswear. Each piece is an experience that explores the area between soft masculinity and strong femininity. Referencing the adaptability of the Lego and Transformer toys from his childhood, removable, interchangeable pockets encourage the user to interact with clothes, while the textures and colour palette are inspired by the classic menswear pieces in his father's closet.

Bi Parel

" mixed media collaboration that draws on various art disciplines "

Designer Shaylene Morris' streetwear brand, Bi Parel, is an expressive, mixed media collaboration that draws on various art disciplines and ideas for its distinctive signature. Since graduating in Fashion Design from the University of Johannesburg, she has participated in various developmental fashion initiatives including EDCON's Design Innovation Challenge and South African Fashion Week's MINI Scouting Menswear Competition, which she won in April 2019.
