It may have been a slow burn, but the fashion world’s ever-watchful eyes have finally started to turn towards Africa and its emerging crop of fashion superstars.

1. Laduma MaXhosa
South Africa’s fashion poster boy has been causing a stir for a while now, both here and abroad. His hugely popular knitwear brand, MaXhosa by Laduma, which draws inspiration from the Xhosa rite of passage, could be described as a bolder African version of Italian label Missoni. It has already garnered a huge following around the globe – including several cast members of “Black Panther”, who wore MaXhosa’s designs to the world premiere of the smash hit movie.
2. Imane Ayissi
You could say that art runs in Imane Ayissi’s blood. Born in Cameroon to a champion boxer father and “Miss Cameroon” mother, he toured the world as a member of the “Ballet National du Cameroun” before working as a successful male model for the likes of Dior, Yves Saint-Laurent and Valentino. Eventually following his true passion, he turned himself into a fashion household name thanks to his successful couture and prêt-à-porter lines, which seamlessly blend African tribal art with Parisian Haute Couture.

Having perfected the art of wearing “Ankara” (local West African cloth) through the use of ornate embellishment, Lisa Folawiyo transformed the textile to create a highly covetable print. Garments are handcrafted by expert artisans, a painstaking process taking up to 240 hours. The result has been an international runaway success – Folawiyo’s designs have been shown at New York Fashion Week, and can be admired on celebrities such as Lupita Nyong’o and Thandie Newton.
