South African fashion design duo MmusoMaxwell made headlines last December when one of their designs was worn by American pop star, Beyoncé. This is not the first time that they’ve been in the spotlight, though.
They have appeared on various reputable fashion publications, including Vogue, True Love Magazine, Marie Claire South Africa, Elle South Africa, i-D Vice Magazine among others because of their great work.
