“When in Milan, I fell in love with fashion all over again. My love for simple aesthetics was reinforced which made me more confident in what I’m trying to achieve.”
Khanyisile Lindiwe Malimela, the designer for Khanyi Malimela, will return to the DFF with a collection style she describes as minimalist contemporary and ready-to-wear.
As one of the 2015 Fashion mentee’s participating in the Durban Fashion Fair Next Generation Show, she has grown a great deal over the past year. Areas of particular benefit were managing her time and improving her sketching skills.
From Umhlanga Rocks, Malimela is self-taught but studying towards a Bachelor of Consumer Science in Fashion Management.
Going forward, she would like to be known as “that ready-to-wear designer that offers garments for the lady that is style conscious”
