SINDISO KHUMALO is a womenswear brand with a strong focus on contemporary textile print design. The brand combines bold African graphics with a sophisticated minimalist construction. The concept behind SINDISO KHUMALO is based on how the fashion textiles industry can create new possibilities and future collaborations between Africa and the global fashion environment.
“Our vision is to create a contemporary, modern, African textile aesthetic that showcases both the craftsmanship that exists in our continent, as well as pushing new ground into future technologies within the textile environment.”
Sindiso Khumalo is a South African designer based in both London and Johannesburg. She studied Architecture at University of Cape Town before moving to London to work for award winning architect David Adjaye. Following that she went on to study an MA Textiles at Central St Martins College of Art and Design, graduating with a distinction for her final project. In October 2012 she was shortlisted for the Elle Magazine Rising Star Competition and showcased her debut SS13 collection at the Awards. Describing her aesthetic as “Afro Bauhaus gone Pop”, she brings a heightened sense of colour and a collision of geometric prints into a luxury womenswear brand.
