Fashion designer Thula Sindi returns to the Africa Fashion International Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Joburg, to debut a collection that celebrates his ten years in the business of fashion.
“AFI is celebrating 10 years and so did I last year, so it seemed right for me to return to the runway that launched my career,” said the designer in an interview with the press.
He also shared insights on how to enjoy longevity in the business.
“The key to that success is always staying in touch with your customer. My business has grown organically and I’ve always tried to listen to my customers and propose irresistible, high-quality fashion to them. Of course, I’ve had missteps along the way, like partnering with unscrupulous businesspeople. Each step of building a business is a lesson.”
It looks like Thula Sindi has perfected the art of listening and proposing irresistible high fashion to his fashion fans. In fact his latest collection says it all. Check out some of our favorite pieces, which is almost everything he showcased.
