On September 16, 2020, fashion designer Laduma Ngxokolo presented his Spring Summer 2021 Collection, “INGUMANGALISO IMISEBENZI KA THIXO” or “God’s Work is Miraculous”, during New York Fashion Week. The collection is titled after a song composed and titled by Laduma’s late paternal grandfather, Mike Ngxokolo, who was a renowned jazz artist, choral music composer, visual artist, actor, and radio presenter. Laduma describes the collection as the most colorful and exotic collection he has designed to date and represents a new dawn and excitement about the upcoming South Africa summer season. Laduma notes “We have to be hopeful about reaching the light at the end of the tunnel because we have realized that happiness is a new Luxury.” The collection will be available for purchase at the end of November on MaxHosa.Africa.
