African Child Clothing is Leading the Way…
Zululand local Sanele is on a road to making his dream a reality. From humble beginnings in Ndabayakhe on the outskirts of Empangeni, Sanele pursued further studies at Mangosuthu University. While he always had a deeply ingrained love for fashion, it is here that his eyes were opened to an entirely new world of possibilities.
During those years of study, Sanele began to dabble in fashion and design, starting his first label. It was during this initial project that he gained experience in print and quality. As his final year of study ended, he returned to his home, the place that held his heart, Zululand. Beginning a life in sales at Coca-Cola, his dreams were put on the back-burner.
The turning point and the true realization of a brand which had only lived in his thoughts came in May 2019 when Sanele was retrenched due to the economic downturn of the times.
While many may have wallowed in self-pity, this young man with the infectious smile and trademark black hat, used this misfortune to create something wonderful and to bring his ideas to life.
African Child Clothing has taken the street fashion world by storm. The high quality clothing and eye-catching logo are testament to the hard work and many long hours put in by Sanele, his sister who solely manufactures the clothing and a small team that has been on a mission to bring the clothing to the masses. Each piece of clothing has been personally designed by Sanele and offers stylish comfort to absolutely anyone, and everyone.
Speaking with Sanele this past weekend it is evident how passionate he is about his brand. With so many new designers mirroring the fashion put out in other countries, Sanele has taken a different approach. His clothing signifies his pride in being an African and encourages others to do the same.
The brand logo tells a story all of its own. You need only see it once to read the message depicted. It is a message of hope, pride and an undeniable love for his country of birth.
Sanele can be reached via telephone on 0726908067 or you can contact the brand on Facebook under African Child Clothing ZA.
Bring out your inner African Child and wear the brand that is proud of our heritage.
