BELLA NAIJA AFRICA FASHION WEEK – SOUTH AFRICA – STONED CHERRIE
THE DESIGNER – STONED CHERRIE
South Africa’s hottest clothing label, Stoned Cherrie is the brainchild of cool-girl-about-town Nkhensani Manganyi Nkosi.
Nkhensani started the clothing brand Stoned Cherrie in 2000 with the aim of growing a cool fashion label that would move conceptions away from the traditional beaded skirts, headdresses and muumuus that dominate the way western women think of African fashion.
Creative director and CEO Nkhensani, who spent her childhood in the US, embraced an “urban African” fashion with a unique twist to reclaim black South Africa’s past. She is married to Zam Nkosi. Stoned Cherrie offers Afro-inspired sexy, sultry clothes. For the Stoned Cherrie website, click HERE
FUN FACT: The model in the main picture is Nigerian, her name is Doyin Haastrup, she was a runner-up in last year’s Face of Africa competition and is now one of the hottest models in SA. She is also makeup artist, Bayo Haastrup’s niece. I will be profiling her on here soon. She looks soooo fierce in the pic….luv it!
What do u guys think? Hot or Not? Is Naija Fashion hotter?
