Vintage Zionist is a Johannesburg-based brand that embraces revolution, recycling, relevance, rebellion and reinvention. Bonded by a love of vintage clothing, designers Mandy Newman and Oscar Ncube spend hours sourcing previously loved leather items hailing back to the 80s, which they then deconstruct and redesign into their signature rock 'n roll aesthetic that has the Fashion Week crowd on their feet. At its heart, this brand is committed to environmentally friendly and responsible fashion.
