RICH MNISI is a South African based contemporary fashion brand, founded in 2014, by LISOF graduate and Africa Fashion International Young Designer of the Year 2014, Rich Mnisi.
With a global view catering for an aspirational market, the brand is young at heart and explores the treasures engraved within Africa, the world of modern culture and heritage to tell the unique stories of then, now and soon. All this is packaged in extremist, yet minimalist structures which take design and craftsmanship as the first and foremost motivation.
Richâ€™s keen interest in the world of pop culture, has fostered him to carve the brand to maintain a contemporary outlook and stand firm in an aesthetic that brings worlds of artistic imagination together. The young designer breeds new layers and visions inspired by sources outside of the realm of fashion, including film, music, art and nature; being immersed but measured, picking up only the fitting notes to gather as foundation.
Only in its 3rd year, RICH MNISI has already grabbed the attention of both local and international media, appearing in the editorial pages of Marie Claire, ELLE, Business Class, GQ Online, Chasseur, Dazed and Confused, Mail and Guardian, House and Leisure, Fashion Glossary UK, Fucking Young, True Africa, Dossier, i-D Vice, GQ Style, Hunger, VOGUE Italia, High Snobiety, Lâ€™official Manila, Sicky, WGSN, BBC, WWD, Sunday Times and more.
