Thebe Magugu fuses fashion and music at sculpture park

Johannesburg – Celebrated fashion designer Thebe Magugu brought an interesting twist to his Spotify Fashion Forward playlist after bringing it to life at NIROX Sculpture Park in Johannesburg.

Recognised as the first African designer to curate the global streaming platform’s Fashion Forward playlist, he used music by South African artists to tell the stories that inspired his latest folkloric collection.

The folk tales were recreated by black-clad muses throughout the event and artist performances by Zoë Modiga, UkhoiKhoi, and The Brother Moves On, which combined 21st-century dynamic storytelling while paying homage to African customs and traditions.

The night’s programme centred on the four elements of air, water, earth, and fire.

There was also an intersection of music and fashion evident throughout the event, from the matching ponchos for each of the guests to the muses who walked among the gathered guests and the mythical choreographed piece, which infused elements of folk tales, that opened the event.
