Internationally acclaimed designer Laduma Ngxokolo is dominating Twitter trends after a tweep complained that his brand, “Maxhosa by Laduma”, is too expensive, saying “I'll pass”. The designer is best known for his unique African printed knitwear, dresses and socks.
The user shared screen shots of various items from the designer's online store, which show a scarf retailing for R1,800 and a woven rug for R25,700.
Some did not take kindly to the post.
Celebrities, including rapper Cassper Nyovest and TV host Olwethu Leshabane, rallied behind the designer. Here's some of the reactions:
So we are back at arguing about the price of merchandise yet again?!,i mean we should now know (at least by now) that this life thing has levels and designers have a target market,i would love to have Brioni suits but i can't,its not their fault that i can't afford them #maxhosa— Zenzele Bryan Ngwenya (@Raszen) November 28, 2019
