My name is Sicelinhlanhla Gift Ngcobo also known as Sgfuze I am menswear fashion designer based on Durban, I specialise on ready to wear and bespoke. My style of designer I can best describe it as afro East Asia futuristic, because i draw inspiration from the east Asian cultures and fuse it with South African past and present pop cultures and street style, to find modern and futuristic look at everyday garments. I graduated at Lindiwe Khuzwayo academy of fashion design in 2018 with a diploma and a best fashion designer award of the year. In 2018 I also took part on Durban fashion fair mentorship under the leadership of Greg Wallis and I was also among mentees who won award for young rising fashion designer of 2018. I also hold the degree of Ba psychology I obtained in university of Johannesburg 2015, which play big role for my marketing and research when comes to my business and work. 2019 I had opportunity to showcase at DFF under the category of emerging fashion designers, which my collection was well received. My dream for way forward is to grow my brand and my fashion business, to achieve the goal to contribute in South African economy, to me being a fashion designer is more than glit and glam. It is about building society and economy.
