From walking for brands like Louis Vuitton and Dolce & Gabbana to headlining major fashion campaigns, the Malope brothers are breaking boundaries and leaving an great mark on the international runway.
Lebo Malope, the younger brother of Denetric, is quickly making a name for himself in the fashion world. Last year, he walked his first international runway alongside his brother for Fendi’s Milan Fashion Week, and since then, he has been on a roll. Lebo recently caught the attention of Louis Vuitton’s creative director, Pharrell Williams, who showcased his autumn/winter 2024 collection in Paris.
Lebo confidently strutted the runway, donning apparel that perfectly embodied the US-inspired Western cowboy style. His presence and charisma that fascinated the star-studded audience, solidifying his position as a rising star in the industry.
Denetric Malope, the older brother, has been part of the fashion world for some time now. Headhunted at African Fashion International (AFI) in Melrose Arch, Denetric’s career skyrocketed, and he has since been in high demand for various fashion campaigns and runways.
Walking for esteemed brands like Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, and Doublet, Denetric’s look and effortless grace have made him a sought-after model. His influence extends beyond the runway, as he has taken his brother Lebo under his wing, guiding him through the competitive fashion industry.
Together, the Malope brothers are a force to be reckoned with. Their combined talent, ambition, and sense of style have gained them attention from top designers and fashion houses worldwide. Their ability to effortlessly adapt to different fashion aesthetics, whether it be the Western cowboy style or high-end couture, showcases their versatility and adaptability as models.
