Watch: Glam couple Solo and Dineo launch their own fashion brand

2 min read

Solo Ntsizwa ka Mthimkhulu and Dineo Langa are among South Africa’s most stylish couples, and are putting their mutual love of fashion to creative use through Port of LNG, a brand encompassing curated capsule collections.

Dineo, who was recognised as one of Glamour Magazine’s Most Glamorous Women, is no stranger to fashion — or being recognised for her style, sophistication and trend-setting ways in the South African fashion industry.

Couple’s first collection a bespoke African offering

Solo, of course, is no slouch in the style stakes either, but it is Port of LNG that now has fans of the couple abuzz.

The 2017 Style Award winners for Most Stylish Couple said the first collection of their new brand consisted of “his and hers, his and his or hers and hers” traditional wedding ensembles for couples or friends incorporating a vast palette of African fabrics. 

This first offering would be a custom or bespoke service, with garments made to the client’s measurements, they said.

Dineo and Solo the power couple

No strangers to being business partners, having produced the shows Kwakuhle Kwethu and Dreamers on Showmax, this power couple are putting their entrepreneurial and creative skills to the test by stepping into a new and exciting market that will see them work closely together. 

Dineo and Solo said they were excited about this new chapter of their journey as fashion headliners.

Solo, a GQ Best Dressed Alumni member, said: “As partners, I always anticipated us making this move into fashion. The timing in this regard seems somewhat divine and assisted.”

Dineo added: “One can expect to see a lot of our creative perspective from inception to production.”
