Founder and Creative Director at Imprint ZA
We get up close and personal with Imprint ZA's latest Afro Futuristic range.
Born and raised in Khayelitsha, Mzukisi is a self-taught fashion designer that has made a name for himself in the South African fashion industry. Mzukisi is the founder and creative director of Imprint ZA, a proudly South African luxury fashion brand.
Raised by a seamstress and a fashion-crazed grandmother Mzukisi Mbane might have graduated in accountancy but at heart he is a creative. In 2011, he launched his clothing brand under the trading name, Swagger Diariez but rebranded it to Imprint ZA. Imprint ZA specialises in men’s and women’s wear.
The brand creates fashion-forward pieces that are influenced by both vintage and streetwear. The brand is driven by its key ethos, “Leave a mark”, which speaks to always believing in oneself, taking calculated risks and pushing boundaries. His latest Afro Futuristic range was featured at the Johannesburg Fashion Week Collection.
