The fashion industry is tough, but so is Lufi D

Fortunate Nkateko Khoza is a self-taught fashion designer who established a successful fashion brand, Lufi D, which expanded to include a boutique, salon and day spa.

In her journey to the top, Khoza encountered multiple setbacks including last year's xenophobic attacks, which resulted in the looting of her shop in Maboneng, and most recently, the Covid-19 coronavirus lockdown.

Despite this, Khoza continues to forge ahead, working towards her name being counted among the best in the fashion and beauty industry.

City Press journalist Molebogeng Mokoka spoke to her about climbing the ladder and staying relevant in this ever-changing and competitive industry.
