Most designers wait a lifetime to receive the acclaim that Rich Mnisi enjoys.

However, one quick look at his body of work quickly makes it clear why the 28-year-old London International School of Fashion (Lisof) graduate and African Fashion International (AFI) young designer of the year is a firm favourite among local and international celebrities.

Mnisi finds himself trending every time he drops a new collection and his recent Hiya Kiya collection is no different.

The designer’s name set social media ablaze when a screenshot of a xibelani in the collection made its way on to Twitter and other platforms. Users could not believe the R60,000 price tag on an item that usually goes for R2000 or less.
