Ntombegugu Penteni is taking a stance in the fashion industry. The 22-year-old who studied at the Nelson Mandela University, doing a Bachelor of Technology in fashion, is coming for the fashion industry and doing it with a message.
Ntombegugu released her Golden State of Mind range for 2017/2018 SS. The young designer revealed that the collection has two sides: theoretical and a studio component. Her entire collection focused on how black women are degraded in the fashion industry and underrepresented, but she also showed the representation of womanhood through the designs, which celebrates black woman.
Ntombegugu prides herself on her use of traditional fabrics. She wants to use her platform to learn from other creatives and their experiences.
