These were still early days for us so we didn't really know the names of half these people and what position in the culture they held and what they represented. Locally not much was happening that excited us except for the Smarteez who were huge if you were into the fashion scene back then and right at the core of it was Manthe Ribane who we drew so much inspiration from, anyway I digress back to talking about the reason for this blog post.
We've collaborated with Manthe Ribane, styling her in the Brooklyn Circus as to say thanks to uncle Ouigi for having the faith in us and having one of our dreams come true. This is also to give gratitude to our sister Manthe Ribane for carrying the cross all those years for things like this to be even possible.
