Nkhensani Nkosi

Nkhensani Nkosi is the founder of the South African fashion label Stoned Cherrie.

Nkhensani Nkosi is one of the new voices from Africa: fashion designer, entrepreneur, television personality and lauded actress. Her distinctive Stoned Cherrie fashion label was born when Nkosi recognised that the urban energy that exists on the continent was not being branded and packaged into products. It was her opportunity to build an African brand that celebrates South Africa's new sense of identity.

Born in 2000 the South African born lifestyle brand has reached Amazonian proportions in the concrete jungles of modern day South Africa.

Nkhensani boasts a multitude of awards, the most notable being the Top Success Story of the Year: Top Women in Business and Government in 2005 and Young Business Quarterly: Young Business Achiever of the Year in 2003. In 2005, she was lauded as one of six high impact entrepreneurs by the US mentorship programme Endeavor.
