South African fashion is becoming more and more exciting as designers are giving new ways to traditional wear. We’d like to shed some light on a few up and coming designers that have caught our eye.

Shelley Mokoena and Keneilwe Mothoa 

These two ladies started their label Prime Obsession in 2014 and have been changing the game ever since. The 25-year-old fashion designers with a background in interior design, fill up the room with a collection of structural, minimal and sophisticated flair. Pastel tints topped off with fringed details can be found in each piece of their line. 

The designers already have multiple collabs under their name, i.e. H&M and Calvin Klein. To give their brand an even more personal touch they model all their clothes themselves. Keep an eye out because we’ve got a feeling there is much more to come.
