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 and the world of modern culture and heritage to tell the unique stories of then, now and soon.
