Fashion has been evolving as much as humans have been. One thing we know is that in the fashion world, you will never go wrong with patterns and bright colors. Bright colors brings out the best style especially on a summer or dull day. Anyways we have one particular fashion designer we absolutely love and adore. His name is Wale Mandla.
Wale Mandla is a youthful and vibrant brand, it is carving out a niche for itself as an exclusive contemporary urban streetwear brand. Mandla grew up an orphan around the farms of Limpopo, moving from family member to family member. This would eventually lead to difficulties in school, as he didn’t have a strong family structure, but one thing that he did have, and that was a constant in his life was his mindset to elevate himself and not be stagnant in life. After High school Mandla went on to do computer studies, obtaining a diploma in information systems. Following that, he went on to work in the IT field for 9 years. However, in 2016 he decided to follow his passion and open his own fashion boutique, to express his love of African patterns. Mandla had no previous fashion experience but has still managed to build and make Wale Mandla the success that it is now, all with his keen eye for patterns, colors, styles and shapes.
Speaking about style, we have our top three favorite outfits from Wale Mandla. From tracksuits to dresses and jackets. Let’s have a look.
