The Loxion Kulca brand, which initially began as an informal enterprise of hand-made items, has grown into a corporation that reaches the entire country as well as neighbouring states. The brand was born in Johannesburg and since its entry into the market, has been the embodiment of popular culture. It draws its inspiration from authentic African principles of ‘ubuntu’, which govern the nature of their corporate partnerships.
The brand Loxion Kulca was a representation of the cultures that these designers were exposed to. Nzimande and Mogale had started out by selling handmade t-shirts and caps from the boot of their car. They then approached Sales House, known today as Jet Stores, part of the Edgars Consolidated Stores (EDCON).
Fashion director and Kaya FM DJ Mzwandile “Wandi” Nzimande has died at the age of 44. EWN reports that Nzimande passed away on Wednesday morning at the Olivedale Clinic in Johannesburg after contracting Covid-19. Nzimande is famed for co-founding Loxion Kulca, one of SA’s most sought-after streetwear brands, together with Sechaba Mogale in 1999.
