Thabo Kopele

THABO KOPELE

Thabo Kopele, a 23-year-old designer from a small town in the Vaal triangle, south of Johannesburg, studied Fashion Design at the London International School of Fashion (LISOF) in Randburg. Forced to drop out in 2017, due to financial constraints, but motivated to work harder, he started his eponymous label at the beginning of 2018. In 2019, with hard work paying off, he resumed studying at LISOF under a scholarship that the institution awarded him.

A clean, stylish, and contemporary minimalist passionate about what he does, fashion to Thabo is about telling a tangible story that will last for generations to come. With the use of fabric, architecture, and simplistic garment construction he compiles his ideas using contemporary zeitgeist methods. As a finalist in the Scouting Menswear Competition, showcasing at South African Fashion Week in 2020 led to Thabo Kopele being selected as one of the Top 8 designers to represent Africa for a WGSN mentorship in 2021.
