Rich Mnisi’s Pays Tribute To African Mothers with His Nwa-Mulamula Collection
South African brand Rich Mnisi has released its latest collection titled Nwa-Mulamula which means looking for mother.
The designer said he drew his artistic inspiration from the love, bravery and strength of a mother.
She is a sacred, powerful and spiritual component of my being – although she rests as a guardian in an ancestral realm, her spirit, lessons and sacrifices have defied temporal limitations and this is why for our Trans-seasonal ‘18 lookbook we explore the ancestral realm looking for her love.
Mothers are the cornerstone of African family structures. From generation to generation, mothers are revered to be fierce protectors, like a lioness to her cubs. They birth nations and carry the burdens of the world on their shoulders. They are the supreme representation of love, bravery and strength. They are the ones known to hold a knife’s edge at the sharpest point. Their fortitude and personality traits are reincarnated through their children, their children’s children and lineage of loved ones who are likened to them.
