The collection, titled Hiya Kaya which was released earlier this week features a wide range of colourful and vibrant garments that simply ooze that signature Rich Mnisi design aesthetic we all know and love. However, it was one particular traditional piece, a Tsonga Xibelani skirt that grabbed the attention of Mzansi with its high price of R59,999.00.

With such a high price tag attached to the designer skirt, it has been described to be “crafted from 5km of 100% Merino wool knotted onto nickel plated d-rings attached to a leather belt.”

However despite its description many people, specifically on Twitter thought that the skirt was a bit too expensive thus making it difficult to support the talented local fashion designer. But on the other hand, others highlighted that Rich Mnisi is a high end luxury fashion brand and as such, the high prices should be expected.
