MEET LARGER THAN LIFE DESIGNERS ABIAH MAHLASE AND BRAD MUTTITT
Meet the founders of AMEN, a unisex brand for those who dare to remain unique.
Larger than life personalities Abiah Mahlase and Brad Muttitt are gurus of the fashion world that have joined forces to create their own fashion company specialising in extravagant clothing and home décor – called AMEN.
Abiah gained popularity from starring as a lead in one of SA’s first reality shows and Brad was a renowned merchandiser for top retail brands. The designers met while studying fashion and are said to have immediately connected creatively.
They have since combined their creative forces to executive flamboyant ideas that now also includes a kids range. All available through House of Nala, an AFI initiative that unites African designers under one roof, at The Leonardo Hotel in Sandton.
Abiah and Brad are also passionate about upcycling pieces in their own homes, and are known for hunting for old treasures that they reinvent with their colourful and imaginative style.
“When the cash is dry, it’s time to DIY,” says Abiah of their passion for turning pre-loved items into something new and fun.
We admire Brad and Abiah’s fearless approach to their work that has allowed them to forge a career that’s true to themselves. Their ability to achieve success by expressing their individuality sure deserves an amen, wouldn’t you say!
