South African fashion designer, Thebe Magugu, added another feather to his formidable cap this week when he was presented with the Franca Sozzani Award by Fashion 4 Development. Coinciding with the UN’s General Assembly, the award was presented during the First Ladies Luncheon, at which Magugu showed his collection “Mother & Child.” The collection includes the Swati Mother & Child Dress, a Bohemia-style moss crepe dress featuring a shirt collar, plunging neckline and balloon sleeves, as well as the Venda Mother & Child Dress, paying homage to the Southern African Bantu people living mostly near the South African-Zimbabwean border. The collection also features the Zulu Mother & Child Dress, which is a deep maroon colour, and the Tsonga Mother & Child Dress in red and blue.
