Thulare Monareng, the designer and the label, is a fashion expression that balances the diverse cultures of a continent immersed in international ethos. Those who adorn themselves in the accessories and apparel walk into the current world with ready to wear garments and accessories that are avant-garde and speak a new language of confidence. Each item of the Thulare Monareng line is a valiant affirmation of a changing Africa and a global voice. Thulare Monareng is a unique hybrid brand that celebrates the beauty of the world’s cultures. Having been raised and spending much of her life living in several countries, Thulare has developed a unique ability to merge cultural influences from Africa, USA, Europe & Asia, which have enabled her to develop a very unique, cross cultural design aesthetic. It is this mÊlange of cultures that makes the brand accessible to anyone that is looking for modern edgy design.

Thulare Monareng Thulare Monareng is South Africa’s most promising avantgarde fashion label. The label is a unique visually powerful expression that fuses modern and traditional design. Thulare Monareng accessories and apparel are cutting edge and beautifully made with distinctly original African elements at the core of their inspiration. While an African spirit forms the core of the brand, it embraces much of what is African while remaining consistently aware of international trends and seeks to create an identity that is NOT regional but global. It is a brand that is seeking to attract and identify an international mindset and not a community.

Thulare Monareng is acclaimed in the fashion industry for its international appeal with African inspirations that reach beyond the borders of the continent to embrace 21st century philosophies and technologies that are part of the modern world. Building on an already bold beginning, the brand is currently positioned to move forward with a stronger identification and more daring statements. Thulare Monareng is striving to expand its international distribution in key specialty stores primarily in the American and European markets. To date the brand has succeeded in retailing it accessories range at Bettina Duncan at FRED SEGAL, Los Angeles as well as TIAELO.COM online store with several more retailer entries lined up by the end of 2013.
