Kwanda Brand Klothing is a chic urban sportswear collection for both men and women. The collection is contemporary with an urban feel that is influenced by hip-hop culture with much use of denim fabrics and a modern approach to the Hoodie aesthetic.
The Kwanda Brand Klothing ProjectΓö¼├í (KBK) was developed within the scope of the Kwanda TV project.Γö¼├í This innovative approach to fashionΓö¼├í and development has been created as a sustainable job creation mechanism which will endure beyond the Kwanda TV series.
KBK works closely with the sewing groups that are taking part in the Kwanda TV series to produce and manufacture this striking range. The teams are from:
- Kwakwatsi in the Free State
- Pefferville in EastLondon
- Tjakastad in Mmpumalanga
- Lephephane in Limpopo
- Mthwalume in KwaZulu Natal
The implementation and process of KBK involves six recent fashion graduates from South African fashion institutions: Tinyiko Baloyi, Mongezi Xweso, Molefi Mohapi, Tebogo Lehlabi, Mfuneka Macu, Archie Monyepao and American fashion designer Selven O’Keef Jarmon.
The complete Kwanda Brand Klothing Winter 2010 Collection is scheduled to be shown in early November 2009.
