“The theme of the collection was titled ‘Ingumangaliso Imisebenzi KaThixo’ which was a song written by the designer’s late grandfather Mike Ngxokolo which simply means ‘God’s work is so wonderful that we don’t even acknowledge how powerful it is. During lockdown, in the midst of sadness, I felt like it’s very important to give people hope with my craft. I love colour so I wanted to showcase happiness so that people would feel very excited about summer and show that happiness is the new luxury.”
