International Woolmark Prize-nominated South African designer Thebe Magugu took to Instagram last week to show off a picture of American media personality, socialite, model and businesswoman Kylie Jenner wearing his Caped Shoulder Wool suit from the AW21’s ‘Alchemy’ Collection.
“Kylie Jenner (@kyliejenner) wears the Caped Shoulder Wool Suit from AW21’s ‘Alchemy’ Collection.
Inspired by the changing face of African spirituality, the collection is now available at key stores,” he captioned his post.
The designer, who is originally from Kimberley in the Northern Cape, studied fashion design, fashion photography and fashion media at STADIO (previously known as LISOF).
Magugu’s career really kicked off after winning the Moët Hennessy-Louis Vuitton (LVMH) prize for emerging talent in 2019.
He has since showcased his fashion collections at the South African and Paris Fashion Weeks.

Jo-Issa Rae Diop, famously known as Issa Rae, an American actress, writer, and producer, has also been spotted wearing an item from one of Magugu’s collections in her 5th season of Insecure.
