A Look Inside Rich Mnisi’s New Hiya Kaya Collection

South African contemporary designer Rich Mnisi has merely been making a name for himself in the fashion industry since 2014. However, he has quickly become one of the leading figures in African fashion. Since founding his fashion brand RICH MNISI, he has made the Forbes 30 under 30 Class of 2019, with his designs being featured in Vogue, ELLE and Dazed to name a few.

RICH MNISI introduces their newest collection, Hiya Kaya, this time inspired by the VaTsonga tribe. The collection succeeds in keeping true to the brand’s consistent outlook of African heritage mixed with pop culture. From bold prints, colourful tones and warm textures, Hiya Kaya represents both the present and future.

This season we celebrate the VaTsonga tribe and shine a light on its rich cultural heritage. Our collection is not only a celebration of the tribe but specifically her women.


The collection is a call-to-action for the protection of women, especially our mothers. The collection pays homage to our Creative Director – Rich Mnisi’s – heritage and is a heart-felt love letter to the VaTsonga people.
