Africa Fashion Week 2011: Thula Sindi (Pictures)

“After studying at LISOF in Johannesburg, Thula Sindi has created a contemporary brand primarily focused on supplying career-wear and occasion wear. Established in 2005, the brand has gained a loyal following with its highly crafted pieces. The aim is to create timeless, elegant and sophisticated pieces.

From his studio in Illovo, the designer creates designs which are guided by the brand’s five principals: wearability, quality, accessibility, style and value.

His brand has been described as “taking you into a magical fantasy and capturing your imagination”. The designer aims to bring this level of style to the mid-market, and is doing so through the retail chain, Edgars.”
