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. She is a 35 year old and she is also Yvonne Chaka-Chaka’s daughter in law.

She had a National Certificate in Information Technology from Birnam College in Johannesburg but has not worked a day in IT. ”I worked in corporate from 2009 until 2016, but realized I needed to start my own business,”

she says. “I knew I wanted to be my own boss. So, I started with the money I had from my pension.” Lufi started her business in 2016 after leaving her nine to five job as a sales representative at an insurance company

After Lufi left her job, she hired a designer to assist her with learning to cut patterns and sketch outfits. In less than a month, her business was up and running. Now she’s added a new business to her list, to prove that when one door closes, two can open. She is now running her successful empire.

The Spar, which was recently launched, employs 13 staff members. Even before becoming a self-taught fashion designer, Lufi has always dreamed of owning a spa and hair salon. Growing up in Bushbuckridge, Mpumalanga, Lufi used to enjoy doing hair to her friend's.
