Thabo Matose – The Brend. My brand. Your style.

The brend is one of the alter egos i created, basically the brend its name taken from the word Brendan. The brend is fashion designer fashionista, a dj and creative individual. Why fashion and music? First of all music is feeling so is fashion. Every item of clothing the brend makes comes from a feeling and emotion. I get a lot of inspiration from other young designers.

I fell in love with fashion when I first got my designer shirt from Bhele one of the designers in Vosloorus. I started sowing late 2013 where a friend of mine named Ayabonga Mntwini bought a machine for me because he saw the eye and passion I had for fashion. with the help internet and YouTube i taught myself how to use the machine and how to make things like making t-shirts and actually taking an old item of cloth and turning into a new one.

The brend fashion is mainly focused on high end & street style fashion. The brend is a culture, lifestyle and it has a unique sense of style and it defines ones personality. The brend fashion tells a story hence the clothes designed are created based on emotions and feeling. As the slogan says ‘my brand your style, style Is an expression of individualism mixed with charisma and the brand is what makes a puts everything together like mother nature. Fashion is something that comes after style.
