Thula Sindi is a South African fashion designer based in Johannesburg since 2005. Sindi was born in Klerksdorp, a city in the North West province of South Africa. He discovered his interest in fine arts at a young age and says “I found fashion a perfect medium to mix colors, concepts, and proportions.” Thula Sindi studied at the National School of the Arts in Johannesburg and soon after at London International School of Fashion. He began his career in fashion as the head designer for the Dutch Textile company, Vlisco and by 2006 was showing his own collection at South African Fashion Week. With a focus on ready-to-wear, his designs are aimed at the modern, sophisticated woman who understands the value of a timeless wardrobe, and described by the Thula Sindi brand as a “woman of consequence.” Sindi was named SA Tourism Designer of the Year for 2012, and in May 2013 made Forbes list of “30 Under 30: Africa’s Best Young Entrepreneurs.”
