Nelson Mandela’s 46664 Charity to Launch Global Fashion Brand

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Who: Nelson Mandela’s 46664 in collaboration with Cape Town-based Seardel Investment Corporation Limited.

What: 46664 Global Fashion Brand Launch

When: Starting August 2011

Where: Johannesburg, South Africa

“46664 has evolved to become much more than a global HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention campaign…The work of the organisation encompasses Mr Mandela’s humanitarian legacy as well as confronting and inspiring action to address the broader social injustices in our society. To do this effectively, 46664 needs reliable and sustainable income streams, something we believe the 46664 Apparel can significantly contribute to…The legacy of Nelson Mandela is powerful enough to stand on its own. You can change the world and your community one step at a time. Wearing [the 46664 brand] is part of a movement for good.”

46664 board member, Achmat Dangor,
(The Nelson Mandela Foundation in Johannesburg.)

The first apparel to be issued by the brand is expected to hit shops exclusively in South Africa starting in August 2011 and the rest of the world in 2012.

Sequins on dresses, shoes, hats are all hot trends for both Summer/Resort 2011 as well as Fall/Autumn 2011 judging by the looks we have been seeing so far at recent Fashion Weeks in New York, London, Paris and Mumbai. It’s no wonder I have picked a sequin number as my fashionwidget fashion throw-back of the month.
