Luxury African fashion label, MAXHOSA Africa by Laduma Ngxokolo, is no stranger to the international runway, the pages of the publication world's most recognised fashion arbiter - Vogue, or the wardrobes of many a celebrated star both locally and internationally. 

In 2019, the Maxhosa Africa label made it onto the sixth round of New York Bloomingdale's rotating pop-up named The Style Kingdom, in celebration of the live-action remake of The Lion King. It was curated by actress Florence Kasumba. This year, the Port Elizabeth-born luxury label was named by British Vogue as one of the seven inspiring African brands to "know- and wear now!" And in 2020, a new Maxhosa Africa store opened at the V&A Waterfront's luxury wing in Cape Town.

His is a story and upward trajectory most inspiring indeed - more specifically, a testimony to the Xhosa worship song and Revelations 15:3 verse; "Mikhulu ingumangaliso imisebenzi kaThixo".
