For art this term, Year 4 have been looking at African design. In particular, the work of the South African born designer Laduma Ngxokolo; the artist who created the very popular clothing brand, Maxhosa Africa.
Laduma Ngxokolo is an award winning designer, entrepreneur and creative artist. In 2010 he founded and created one of the most ground-breaking designer brands in the history of South Africa. His brand Maxhosa AFRICA is globally recognized with invites to showcase on international platforms like the New York Fashion Week.
Laduma’s pride and creativity is reflected in the intrinsic pieces he creates for Maxhosa Africa. The designer himself is world renowned with an innovative eye while still rooted in Africa. His pieces are made of premium material with precision craftmanship.
