Mzansi Designers’ aim is to design, manufacture and distribute exclusive African-inspired men’s and women’s wear. The company acts a platform for emerging fashion talent, equipping them with all the facilities, skills and extra support they might need to get ahead. And by doing this, they’re improving the people’s quality of life by creating sustainable jobs, reducing unemployment and alleviating poverty through the fashion industry.
It’s true to say Lesego is an investor in people. The company nurtures staff by giving them technical skills training, business management training and running motivational and self-esteem building programmes. As more designers emerge they become role models, inspiring and enabling others to follow in their footsteps.
Further confidence in the company came when Mzansi Designers was named the official designers and suppliers of 2010 Soccer World Cup apparel for the City of Johannesburg.
They are currently in the process of establishing retail stores across South Africa and internationally.
