Pietermartzburg School of Fashion student Lindeka Duma has been announced as the winner of the Vodacom Durban July Young Designer Award, presented by the Durban Fashion Fair, based on the raceday theme “Birds of a Feather”.
Duma stunned the panel of judges, made up of industry experts Leigh Schubert, Greg Wallis, Nonku Mthembu, Lara Klawikowski and Derrick Mhlongo, with a black guinea fowl-inspired body suit design overlayed with lengths of handmade platted rope to form a colourful bodice and a show-stopping big hat, all using locally-made Shweshwe fabric.
“It was quite remarkable and had such presence,” said Wallis.
