At the intersection of Black History Month and Women's History Month, fashion has found a way to honor the strong, female ancestors that came before them.
For South African designer Thebe Magugu, it was an easy choice. At the core of his Fall/Winter 2021 collection, African spirituality and female divination is celebrated at full volume. The collection titled "#Alchemy," explores the occult, cultural heritage of the South African upbringing and the modern women changing the landscape.
"This season, I wanted to have a conversation with traditional healers, who have divinely been given powers to answer our most burning questions, and who act as a conduit between various realms, often by using objects of divination," The LVMH prize-winning young designer writes. "It’s a very particular kind of strength, one that doesn’t show-off and relies heavily on the natural."
