It happened coincidentally that these two prominent figures were chosen. Myself and Boogy have personally known Nomuzi for a long time, and we felt she shared the aspiration to leave a legacy and be spoken about with the likes of Brenda Fassie and Winnie Mandela – with an equal share of fame and controversy so to speak. So this is a visual representation of “The Nomuzi” we know, paying homage to the two great female public figures she idolises.
Tell us about the inspiration behind the looks.
We took our lead from seeing the one-of-a-kind Brenda Fassie DEAD shirt. For us, the next step was influenced by two things:
1) The cold weather slowly approaching.
2) Our love for streetwear, and [icons on T-shirt] trend by the likes of Supreme and Palace; for example with a Sade collaboration shirt.
We recognised in Bangy of Dead’s choice of Brenda Fassie something we could relate to; in the sense that we should be celebrating our icons in these times, in these kinds of ways.
