Fashion powerhouse, Rich Mnisi collaborates with H&M to bring his gender-neutral line of basics to your closet.
Predominantly focused on streetwear, Mnisi’s range is a celebration of his growth as a creative and designer since he came onto the scene in 2014. Fresh out of varsity, he established the OATH studio, his own fashion brand. Within that very year, he was awarded the African Fashion International Young Designer at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Africa.
He is known for incorporating his Tsonga culture into his designs, telling his story through the art of fashion. He is also known for Africanising pop culture fashion moments.
Since then, his work has adorned many an A-lister, with the likes of Maps Maponyane, Themi Seete, Boity Thulo, and Bonang Matheba sporting his designs. Even Beyonce (yes, we said Queen B!) was dressed by Mnisi in 2018 when she performed at the Global Citizen Concert in Joburg.
