Today is Madiba Day…in celebration of Nelson Mandela’s 95′th birthday.
Not only is he a truly inspirational man, captivating the entire world with his visionary humbleness, he is also somewhat of a FASHIONISTA!
With his savvy dress sense, combining colour, print, texture & supposed clashing styles, i.e. a somewhat casual button shirt paired with tailored trousers, buttoned shirt worn tugged out over trousers, etc., his Madiba Shirts has inspired fashion & textile designers worldwide to create interesting and fun garments.
The clothing line 46664 is also a Nelson Mandela Brand. 46664 (four, double six, six four) takes its name from the prison number (prisoner number 466 of 1964) given to Mr Mandela when he was incarcerated for life on Robben Island, off Cape Town, South Africa. Mr Mandela gave his prison number to the organisation as a permanent reminder of the sacrifices he was prepared to make for a humanitarian and social justice cause he passionately believed in. Available from selected Stuttafords and other retail chains, as well as an online store.
Happy Birthday Nelson Mandela.
