Black Excellence! Rich Mnisi Among The 2020 Vogue Talents Digital Event Winners. Earlier this year, Vogue Italia‘s fashion talent scouting arm, announced a new project dedicated to African creatives. The project is aimed at supporting emerging designers hailing from the African continent.
The project was open to all African ready-to-wear and accessories designers, and our very own celebrated designer Rich Mnisi, entered.
