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.

Fans and South African celebrities including the likes of Boity, Trevor StuurmanRich MnisiNomalanga, and Dr Sivuyile Madikana took to the comments section to congratulate the designer.

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.
