“Mantsho” is a clothing label that was established by Johannesburg-based designer, Palesa Mokubung in 2004.
Palesa, who holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Fashion Design, zooms in on African cultures and elements, and cleverly transforms them into modern and edgy designs. Her career started when she walked into a boutique in Rosebank, Johannesburg and the owner asked her where she got her outfit from and Palesa said, “I made it”. This boutique was called Stoned Cherrie, the revolutionary South African fashion brand, which Palesa started working at Stoned Cherrie, primarily as a designer, and gained enough experience and knowledge to start her brain child, Mantsho.
Mantsho has gone on to travel to countries such as Greece, India, New York, Jamaica, Nigeria, Botswana, Ethiopia and Senegal, showcasing its designs. In 2014, Palesa won a Fashion and Innovation Award at the Mbokodo Women in the Arts Awards, founded by Carol Bouwer. Mantsho is currently stocked in two Mantsho stores; one in Melville at 27 boxes and the workshop in Newtown, where customers can receive the full Mantsho experience.
