THREE young creative minds from Pietermaritzburg Alwyn Loutan, Lindokuhle Makhathini and Nana Zondi recently branched into the retail industry with the launch of their new clothing brand.

“Good-Vibes Only”, an urban funk upmarket clothing range, was launched in June 2016. The range consists of long T-shirts, sweaters, hoodies and caps.

Loutan has experience in retail and said it’s a range aimed at the urban population­ and consist of essential casual­-capsule items.

He added the inspiration behind the idea of starting this partnership was born when he worked in the retail industry.

“The clothing line was inspired by our patriotic obsession with South African culture and our passion to create unique items of clothing.

“We bring in different elements to the business - I have experience in retail and understand the customer better,

“Lindo is the brains behind all our designs and graphics and Nana is a fashion enthusiast who studies the latest trends.”

According to Loutan although they don’t have a shop yet, their items are available to buy and retail from R350.

Loutan said they are planning on partnering with other upcoming designers in the city and giving them an opportunity to create apparel for their next range.

“We want to start a movement in Pietermaritzburg­ and give upcoming designers an opportunity to showcase their skill and talent.

“We want to create a platform where as designers we can move forward together.”
