Thula Sindi was born in Klerksdorp, Northwest Province. He is one of South Africa’s best known young designers.
The Thula Sindi brand, established in 2005, has quickly gained a loyal following amongst women who appreciate well made, intelligently-designed and reasonably-priced clothing. Sindi is constantly documenting his sketches and design concepts in what he describes as a ‘virtual vault of ideas’ he can tap into when it’s time to produce a new collection. “I found fashion a perfect medium to mix colours, concept and proportion and the immediate and dynamic nature of the fashion business.” He said.
Sindi, is a graduate of the National School of the Arts in Johannesburg, and studied at the London International School of Fashion (LISOF). He got his first job at a Dutch textile company Vlisco, as head designer a day after he graduated. Sindi’s work has graced many runways including Hong Kong, Beijing, New York, Lagos and Paris, where he had his first show in 2007. His participation at the Couture Fashion Week in Paris led to his nomination as one of the top 10 emerging designers in the FIMA: Afrique est la mode pan African fashion contest. Sindi says his runway show in Paris remains the highlight of his career because “It was the time and place where I solidified my aesthetic and found my voice as a designer,” he added.
