Rich Mnisi unveils the latest collection from his South Africa-based, eponymous brand.
“It is with this foundation, that I seek to pay homage to my great grandmother, NWA-MULAMULA; the quintessential mother figure I draw inspiration from. She embodies all the qualities of a mother. A guardian, a beacon of light and represents the generations of strong women that have molded the man I am today. Although she rests as a guardian in an ancestral realm, her spirit, lessons, and sacrifices have defied temporal limitations. An undocumented woman born during World War II from rural Valdezia in Limpopo, she only exists in the time capsule of age-old stories fondly told through generations in my family. She is a sacred, powerful and spiritual component of my being.”
