In South Africa Mantsho represents the unapologetically modern African woman. Created in 2004 by Johannesburg-based designer Palesa Mokuburg, this brand focuses on using African materials and transforming them into modern, edgy designs. Using fine silks and woven fabrics along with traditional African material, Mantsho combines modern fashion with reverence to African culture and history. The designs center around three major concepts toward their finished look: silhouette, structure, and quirkiness. The finished looks have unique shapes that stand out in a crowd, vibrate with confidence and demands a presence. We admire this Mantsho dress with its captivating colors and angular shoulders. This dress with the matching hat calls for respect and attention.
