The runway shows of the highly anticipated ARISE Fashion Week kicked off on 31st March 2018 at Lagos Continental Hotel (formerly Intercontinental Hotel) with stunning collections from various designers across Africa.
Rich Mnisi showcased a punk collection on Day 3 of ARISE. The Eponymous brand by South African designer 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. All this packaged in extremist yet minimalist structures, which take design and craftsmanship as the first and foremost motivation. Mnisi has a keen interest in the world of pop culture and he has shaped the brand to maintain a contemporary outlook and stand firm in an aesthetic that brings worlds of artistic imagination together. Mnisi is inspired by sources outside of the realm of fashion, including film, music, art and nature, being immersed but measured, picking up only the fitting notes to gather as foundation.
