Amanda studied Clothing Design, graduating from the Technikon Natal in 1983. She worked in the studios of two boutique businesses, before joining Instinct, a surf and sportswear brand.
Amanda Laird Cherry is both an artist and a storyteller; communicating personal and political stories through cloth and thread. “Those who think of clothing exclusively in terms of this or season’s fashion are missing the point a little. The fabrics and the cuts we wear tell us about our society,” says Amanda.
She participated in the Durban Designer Collection fashion shows and SAFW shows on numerous occasions. Amanda has exhibited work at the London Fashion Week Expo and Pure London, and has presented on multiple occasions at the prestigious Design Indaba Conference and Expo in Cape Town.
The Amanda Laird Cherry label includes ladies wear and accessories made in collaboration with local crafters and skills-building organisations, and is currently stocked by and The Space stores, nationwide.
