CONGRATULATIONS to Athenkosi Mfungula WINNER in the BEST MENSWEAR category at DFF2019 Evolution Is Elementary!! “Everywhere I go I try to see the world in a Fashion kind of way. My style is ‘Swag vs Klass’. What I like to do is to combine the two into day/evening Wear. The transformation is easy because this brings together formal and Casual,” explains Athenkosi Mfungula.
He discovered a love for fashion during his school years and spent a great deal of time sketching clothes and then asking classmates’ opinions of his creations.
Mfungula graduated from the School of Fashion Design in 2015 and started working on his brand, LeMFUX. His inspiration comes from his own experiences. His favourite local designers include @mxolisiluke @chusuwannapha and @sandile_duke_ndabezitha and his collection for this year’s DFF2019 centred on men’s wear. This has served him well as his collection earned him the Menswear category winning title!
Top achievements to date include being chosen in the Top 3 Vodacom Durban July Classic Male 2015, the Top 3 Vodacom Durban July Young Designer 2016, the DFF Top Rising Star 2017 as well as showcasing at SA Men’s Wear Week A/W18, Made in Africa (Channel 129- BET Africa) 2018 and RawSilk Season 2 (SABC1).
