Lucky Fish

Lucky Fish is a line of clothing and home furnishings hand-printed in Brooklyn, NY, with its imagery and color palate inspired by my growing up in South Africa, and my global travels that followed. Although I didn’t use the name back then, the Lucky Fish idea was born in the mid-1980s, at the height of the struggle against apartheid, where my generation of South African artists were challenged to integrate our political activism and new African identity with our art work and personal style. In those days, we could be found one day printing a new “struggle” T-shirt or banner to support some new campaign, the next day printing dresses or leggings because we couldn’t find the clothes we wanted in stores.
