Mzukisi Mbane qualified as an Accountant with BCom Accounting. Unable to find clothes that represented who he was, where he was from, where he was going, and what inspired who he is as a young African in the modern day, lead Mzukisi on a journey that gave birth to IMPRINT.
Imprint is an AFRO FUTURISTIC luxury brand that tells our African identity. It celebrates who we are with elements of the future, which is evident in the prints that we use. We always tell African stories in ways that people haven’t imagined.Mzukisi Mbane
Patterns on patterns on patterns – if you never thought it was possible, we can always count on IMPRINT to plant the seed of hope and rebirth in our wardrobes with a colourful, intuitive flow of patterns, and dramatic structure which Mzukisi presented at the recent Africa Fashion International Fashion Week Joburg.
Mzukisi Mbane, has always seen himself in fashion and believes it’s something he was born with. “Imprint’s Afro Futuristic brand is a work of art! Its infusion of colour, structure, and use of patterns will leave you mesmerised. You’ll want to savour it up close as you appreciate every tiny detail, from the collar to the sleeves, to the complimenting accessories, and layered silhouettes” Roshan Isaacs (Managing Editor Style Africa)
IMPRINT is not only an established Afro Futuristic brand but also empowers the next generation of Creatives in building the future of African design.
“Imprint has always been about providing opportunities to creatives, students, models and more who come from disadvantaged communities. My motivation has always been about the power of giving someone an opportunity. And the magical effect that has to a child who comes from a place where something is never for them.”Mzukisi Mbani
