She is a young dynamic designer who’s range did not go unnoticed at the Sunglass Hut New Talent search at SA Fashion Week. Kentse Masilo who studied at the Tshwane University of Technology describes her collection as futuristic, taking women to the next level and “from earth to space”. She likes to predict upcoming trends while being relevant in the current market.

The colours in her collection are bold and the indigo colour is inspired by a type of sand found in the North West province, where she grew up. How the colours are brushed on the garment is a reflection of the colours we can paint ourselves in, indigo especially is a colour she loves to see herself in.

“The birth of the brand Kentse Masilo was inspired by the constant need of individualized clothing amongst women“. The woman who’d wear her work is someone looking for a subtle and “effortless statement of class” and she describes her looks as “effortless self-expression”. To Kentse, email her at
