Tumelo Nwanma is from South Jersey describes her style as very eclectic. “I get inspiration from the modern day streets of New York, to the traditional roots of my homeland, South Africa and even the vibrant eras of the 20’s, 60′, 70’s and late 80’s. I have no problem standing out in bold colors or clashing prints, even though consciously I am more attracted to jewel and monochromatic tones. Fabulous women such as Nicole Richie, the Olsen twins, Kylie Jenner, Solange Knowles and Janelle Monae all go hand-in-hand in my world and seem to create the perfect woman all mashed up into one,” says Nwanma. “Surprisingly to most, I get a lot of my inspiration from men’s wear. There is nothing more confident and powerful then a well dressed man, and I always try to emulate that through male inspired pieces.”
