Nokwanda Ngcobo is a Durban-based fashion designer who has gone from strength to strength since she graduated from DUT with a national diploma in Fashion Technology. After studying further, she gained more skills, before starting her own clothing label (Wanda Woman). In 2013, she won the David Tlale Extravaganza Internship, in partnership with the KZN Department of Economic Development and Tourism. This made her part of the assisting team for David Tlale in New York Fashion Week. She is now back in Durban, and has relaunched herself as Nokwanda of 8th Wanda Designs.

Nokwanda Ngcobo brought a blockbuster collection of 16 looks for the versatile woman and each look was a breath of fresh air on the runway with elegant colours lurking beneath a dark appeal
