THEMBA MNGOMEZULU, fashion designer

The man who created the Darkie brand in 2002, Mngomezulu, 31, combines edgy African street fashion and township culture in his work. It seems he was destined to be a fashion designer early on, starting out selling used clothes with his mother. When he started designing, he tested his wares on friends, who snapped up customised versions of his old clothes. Even now, the designer doesn’t wear new clothes, saying recycling keeps his mind creative.

When he isn’t complaining how hard it is for designers to be taken seriously by banks in South Africa, he puts together initiatives such as last year’s Darkie Clothing Show, inspired by musical legends and style icons, which was a breakthrough success.
