“I created Mbaliyezwe Atelier for the modern man and woman who are not afraid to be different from the crowd. All the items I create are bespoke, timeless and best suited for the client’s personality and taste. Every single design tells a story and style is always an essential part of each designing process. From the design illustration to the fabric selection, patternmaking and construction – I work with each individual client to create not only another garment, but a true reflection of the person they want to present to the world, while still feeling comfortable in their own skin.”
