Bow Afrika Fashion fast becoming a sought-after brand
Bow Afrika Fashion is a young, vibrant and exciting clothing line based in Johannesburg, South Africa.

In the short time the label has been around, it has garnered a loyal international clientele and is in great demand.

The clothing label was founded in February 2013 by five individuals, three of which have since left, with varying backgrounds in the arts and they have some amazing designs.

Danisa Mike Nyirenda, one of the remaining founding members told OneVybe: "It started accidentally because we initially wanted to do film and music."

Mike has a notable career in film and has featured in the popular South African soap opera Generations and Egoli: Place of Gold.

He has also starred in various high profile adverts such as being the face of Clere Lotion for Men.


Bow Afrika Fashion founders Khule and Mike


Mike's business partner, Khule Mxotshwa, is a script writer, who in 2006 and 2007 worked on 'Amakorokoza.'

Khule went on to direct the award winning play 'Tihulungoma' by St Andas School.

The artists decided to start a fashion label because they figured that it would bring in the returns sooner.

"It was very hectic as we started on a zero budget," Mike told OneVybe. "I remember when we walked into our first studio; we had only a maroon suitcase and a small radio."

Now Bow Afrika has achieved considerable success and delivers to customers all over the world.

The founders now feel that they are in a position to pursue their ambition of going into music and film and since the projects complement fashion, the duo will continue their sought-after clothing label.
