Lethukuthula AKA Letta Zulu makes his mark in the fashion design industry.
Being born and raised in Kwazulu-Natal, he moved to Charl Cilliers in Mpumalanga with his parents and that it is
where his business operates.
His interest in fashion industry was notices at a very young age when all he wanted was to be classy and dress differently from others.
“I did not feel comfortable to wear the same clothes as others, I always had my own designs in my mind of which
I could not find in clothing shops.
I made the first shirt designed by myself and the demand was huge, of which I ended up selling it,” said AKA Letta.
As time went, he gained more experience and started to learn how to make bags, sandals (using car tyres to make sole), car seat covers, necklaces and earrings.
“My target market is everyone who loves pure African style.
My future aspirations include seeing my designed clothing in big retail shops globally.”
