Gaschette would just like to give out a special mention to Mantsho at this year’s SA Fashion Week. Palesa Mokubung really came into her own with her latest collection and succeeded where many other designers have failed, showcasing Shweshwe in a new and interesting way. While normally the traditional pattern creates an eye rolling front row, I found myself focusing on the construction of the garments rather than the fabric. Fantastic shoulders and great draping showed the basics on which to build a great collection.
Well done Mantsho! We hope to see more of this in the future.
