If you are a fashion student looking for inspiration, as well as a reminder that great success IS possible, and you have yet to visit the Thula Sindi store on Oxford Road in Jozi, you have been missing out! Or perhaps you simply enjoy ‘window shopping’, appreciating the finer (and more expensive) fashions in South Africa. Worry not – Student Digz has got the scoop for you…
Yes, we’re talking about the Thula Sindi. The Klerksdorp-born fashion genius who has brought a new sense of style to local South African women. His focus is on creating timeless pieces that ooze modern sophistication without being overly complicated.
The person behind the label
Thula Sindi, the man behind the clothing label, has been recognised as one SA’s most respected and most talented designers since 2006. To drop just a few names, he has designed outfits for some of our best loved local celebs including Dr Precious Moloi-Motsepe, Terry Pheto, Azania Mosaka, Penny Lebyane, Liezel Van der Westhuizen and Jena Dover.

The Thula Sindi brand itself has been in existence for 12 years already and has become one of South Africa’s most sought after clothing labels, effortlessly combining designer haute couture with everyday essentials.
If you’re keen to take a look at some of the stunning pieces that the brand has to offer, you can stop by the store on Oxford Road or pay the Thula Sindi website a visit.
All of the merchandise is updated on a regular basis, so whenever you shop, you know that you’re getting only the best of Thula Sindi’s latest work.
From pencil skirts to twist tops and everything in between, it’s not difficult to see why this designer has still got everyone talking… and why he has people from all over the country swiping their credit cards left, right and centre!
Let’s face it though, if you’re anything like us, you probably had a mini stroke when you saw the price tags on most of the items for sale. It goes without saying that they are somewhat on the expensive side for many of us students to afford right now… but if you’re an ambitious fashion designer or simply a die-hard fashion fan, it certainly is something to aspire to!
