In fashion, it looks like all good things come in twos. Meet MmusoMaxwell, a design duo made up of Mmuso Potsane and Maxwell Boko. They met while doing an internship with the great David Tlale and decided to join forces as they shared similar ideas… we see a pattern here. The duo was selected for the Vogue Talent 2017 and were also featured in Vogue Italia that same year. They have also showcased their designs in Lagos, Nigeria and at SAFW where they won the Sunglass Hut New Talent Search.
They draw inspiration from their heritage and up bringing as well as everyday people that they meet and I find their design aesthetic to be very modern and clean. Their tailoring is everything and they have a love for layering and to be honest, theirs are the only asymmetrical designs that I would consider wearing (I have a thing for symmetry). They really pride themselves in their quality and always strive to be sustainable through the use of natural fabrics. We will definitely see more of them in the future. You can order their clothes from The Fashion Agent or contact them on Studio@mmusomaxwell.com. They are also found on Instagram and Twitter . Here are some of their designs.
