We love women who go out there and do it for themselves. Not only do they inspire those around them but are living proof that the future is female. 

Our woman crush Wednesday goes to Nandi Madida, the Durban beauty who’s currently living it up in New York. 

Madida made her debut at New York Fashion Week last Saturday as she is now an established designer, owning a clothing label called “Colour” . Collaborating with Philani Lindokuhle, Kentse Masilo and Josh Patron, her latest Autumn/Winter collection is a perfect gear for a classy and sophisticated woman. 

Some of the pieces include formal coats and elegant suits in dull yet elegant colours like brown. The models also wore braids with beads, just like her.

After being crowned Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year by Forbes magazine in 2016, it’s safe to say Madida emerged, saw and is now conquering.


The latest Autum/Winter collection from Colour will be officially launched in late March.
