Brief Biography:
Black Coffee consistently gives local fashion a distinctive face with its deeply referential, meticulously engineered and ultimately divergent approach. Their design ethos embraces contrast and re-shapes traditions with an intuitive twist. The result is mysteriously familiar yet refreshingly unique occupying a space somewhere between history and imagination. Black Coffee has shown at South African Fashion Week, Cape Town Fashion Week and San Francisco Fashion Week. The label has been nominated five times for the SA Fashion Awards and has won twice (in 2001 and 2007). It received the coveted Mercedes Benz Art Award for 2009.
