Born on January 15th, self-taught designer, Ntando Ngwenya incorporated his birthdate in his eponymous label for the non-binary artisanal clothing brand he launched in 2015.
Attention to construction and detail using intricate and treated fabrics are the hallmarks of his signature which bridges the gap between tailoring and streetwear to produce a distinctive aesthetic that aims to evoke an emotion.
“Standing out isn’t important, but for how long can you standout, is. That is the narrative that resonates with the brand. Momentary trend doesn’t interest us. Timelessness does,” he says.
