Through his eponymous label, Mnisi is pushing boundaries and using fashion to tell the South African story to local and international audiences.
"We're in a time where [the processes of] exploring our identity, our heritage and our future are coming together to create a very important narrative," says the Joburg-based designer.
"The brand explores the synergy between heritage and futurism. It tells the story of modern culture while never forgetting to uphold the treasures ingrained in Africa."
Mnisi's designs are defined by a constant sartorial experimentation with silhouette, layering, print and texture. There's a strong inclination towards non-binary looks that are ultra-wearable must-haves for men and women alike.
In fact, his garments have garnered praise not only for their uniquely African flavour, but for their gender-bending aesthetic.
