This year’s DFF included at least five shows per evening and featured over 50 designers, including the Class of 2021 designer mentees, emerging and established designers.

Award-winning designers Mxolisi ’Luke’ Mkhize and Kwenzi Nkomo of Indoni Fashion House collaborated to present a collection to pay tribute to the Zulu kingdom.

“Indoni Fashion house and I had the same vision. We wanted to tell a story about our Zulu Kingdom. We wanted to pay homage to our late King.

“While we were on a flight to Namibia for MTC Windhoek Fashion Week, we discussed how we could come together, collaborate and do one collection for @dbnfashion_fair.

“We had many challenges putting all this together. But, we worked together every step of the way, we worked hard and had sleepless nights. The results were mind-blowing and also overwhelming,” said Luke.
