An incredibly talented South African designer – who produced dresses for Beyonce during the Global Citizen concert – just showcased all his work in a Paris show!

 

Paris, France (4 March 2020) – Quiteria Lebogang Kekana, founder and creator of Quiteria Atelier took his dream of a village boy from Limpopo and gave it life on international runways across the world; Paris, New York, Milan, London and home in Africa.

In 2018, he was commissioned to design 45 garments for Beyoncé and her dancers at the Global Citizen concert, and since then his whole world has changed. He has dressed international, and local stars Terry Pheto, Pearl Modiadie, Dineo Moeketsi, Nomuzi Mabena, Boity Thulo, and the list is endless.

Quiteria has found a way to observe the life of a modern woman and transmute the energy into irresistible furnishings for the human body.

His solo show in Paris on Saturday, 29 February 2020 was presented on the runway at the prestigious Ritz Paris, Place Vendôme during Paris Fashion Week and saw actress Nandi Mbatha and Tessa Twala closes the show for him.

Quiteria presented a collection that left the audience feeling both moved and invigorated which is no effortless task for any designer, but the expertise of Quiteria and his team which consist of Sir Ernest his junior designer for the brand and many others made it seem simple.

His interpretation of the world resides deeply in the art that his clothing line produces; an intoxicating energy of vogue modernism is ever-present. Quiteria style is captivated by the sartorial world when he recognised the liberation that styling fabric, in ways that invoke confidence he had to offer.

An emotional and humbled Quiteria Kekana sent his gratitude to everyone back home for the love and support.

“I really appreciate the love and support, to my team, this is for all of you including your families, and a big thank you to Mr Sencho for your continuous support, Africa is Luxury,” he concluded.
