Top Billing features fashion designer Sibusiso Mahone


Designer Sibusiso Mahone of Mahone thrills mainstream fashion with his Afro-punk vision.



Our theme this week is Afropunk and to designer Sibusiso Mahone it’s an attitude as much as a look. It’s hosting your own shows, reflecting your roots  and seeing yourself as African without borders.


It was as a first-time exhibitor at Mozambique Fashion Week that Sibusiso Mahone first caught our eye. Raised in a tough environment in Hillbrow, he has made his own luck, he’s aiming high and wants to take other young, African creatives with him.

Staying in touch with the street culture which inspires him, Sibusiso keeps a workshop in Newtown, surrounded by like-minded artists.

While his Streetwear Cartel store is doing well, Sibu’s advice to aspiring designers is to do it for the love of fashion. Not just money. To make it through the hard times demands passion.

This young maverick is proving the value of work which is original, comes from a real place and is unafraid to take risks.

Running a lifestyle brand and creative agency, the man who dubs himself The Quiet Junkie has no need to shout – his work does it for him.
