Thando Ntuli is one of the most exciting names in local fashion design at the moment.
In 2019 she founded Munkus, her colour-forward, intergenerational, retro-inspired fashion label, after leaving the corporate world, and last year she won the South African Fashion Week New Talent Award.
Her latest work comes in the form of a collaboration with Pick n Pay Clothing’s Futurewear programme under the mentorship of designer Gavin Rajah. Started in 2020, it is a platform which gives young creatives a foothold in the local fashion industry while making exciting, fresh designs accessible to the public. This is the 10th collection to launch under the Futurewear programme, with more expected later this year.
“Pick n Pay Clothing has been the brand that we all have staples from. For me it is onesies most of the time. And T-shirts in summer. It’s a brand that’s also kind of aligned with my brand. Kind of like a home staple. For me it made sense, and it’s something I’ve always wanted to do,” Ntuli said.
