Bomkazi designs

What does your company do?

Bomkazi Designs is a clothing brand that is rooted in modern Afrocentric designs, drawing inspiration from various African cultures. I am in the process of incorporating linen garments into our collection. Our work prominently features Shweshwe prints, which hold significant cultural value in South Africa.

What is your biggest success?

I was an exhibitor at the All Fashion Sourcing trade show in 2023, I was also a finalist at the Young designers competition. I have hosted a solo fashion exhibition at The Watershed Waterfront where I made sales on a new collection.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

My biggest hurdle has been getting to a point where I make consistent sales and having a decent cash flow. It is also getting the right marketing strategy in order to continuously grow as a business
