It is with honour that we welcome the opportunity to exclusively launch Lukhanyo Mdingi’s Sports Capsule Collection. The collection was made on our fifth floor design centre at the ‘NFS workshop’ led by Dennis Collins, and showcases our ongoing vision to bring about the production potential of local design right in the heart of Cape Town. The collection itself embodies Lukhanyo Mdingi’s ongoing dialogue with sporting attire as rich with sartorial histories and cultural relevance, as seen by the label’s SS23 BURKINA Collection.
These ongoing achievements symbolise the potential for a pathway in longevity for aspiring designers in South Africa and across the continent. Lukhanyo Mdingi has shown at SA Menswear Week, presented at New York Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week.
Through a network of relationships with artisans from Khayelitsha, to the Eastern Cape and up to Burkina Faso; Lukhanyo Mdingi continues to advance a vision for artisanal through the ‘hands that make’, as central to his expression as a designer.
