Sister Bucks had already captured the world audiences when South Africa began to actively participate in the global economy post apartheid. She is known for having ventured into the unchartered terrain of the Pan African aesthetic – by fusing African fashion elements into contemporary couture. To date she has influenced a significant trend in the urban chic circles especially the new breed of Afro centric designers who are celebrated for their distinct home grown signatures
The year 2008 was the mark of a milestone 30 th year existence of this exquisite African couture brand “Sister Bucks” as known throughout the African continent and internationally. The brand introduced Madiba shirts globally and had the fashion world a buzz. Yet her crowning glory was her design for the late South African singer, Jabu Khanyile whose vibrant ethnic outfit made the Queen Elizabeth of England to stand up and dance as she predicted, at Trafalgar Square (Nelson Mandela Birthday party).
An unprecedented moment as the queen queried as to who made the wonderful outfits. Her ethos of “celebrating the African spirit through dress” has an impact on South African and African fashion the world over. Sister Bucks has designed for musical legends such as Hugh Masekela, Brenda Fassie and “Mama Africa the late Miriam Makeba” Amampondo etc. as the list is endless.
