Mantsho, Ri.ch Factory and Rubicon participated in the South Africa Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2018 held at Sandton City Shopping Centre from October 24-27, 2017. Here are highlights from their collection:
“Mantsho” is a Sesotho word that means “A Beautiful Complexion”. The clothing label was established by Palesa Mokubung in 2004. Palesa zooms in on African materials and cleverly transforms them into modern and edgy designs that incorporate fine silks and woven fabrics to end up with a 100% Mantsho garment. Palesa holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Fashion Design and her biggest accomplishment was to win the Fashion and Innovation Award at the Mbokoko Women in the Arts Awards in 2014. Stocked by BScene Boutique, Mantsho Lifestyle Store, Spree and Zando.
