As we previously mentioned, a new fashion line inspired by Nelson Mandela's 46664 charity, which refers to his prisoner number when he was incarcerated in 1964, has been in the works.

And now, the collection has made its debut in New York. Celebrating Mandela's 94th birthday on Wednesday, the brand launched the new line, consisting of bold colors and prints across chinos, dresses, denim, blazers, t-shirts, and knitwear for men, women, and children.

South African Consul General George Monyemangene spoke of the brand, saying:

"We couldn’t find a better day to have this launch than on Nelson Mandela International Day."

The brand is expected to expand to 23 countries by 2013 and will plan to increase funds and create jobs in South Africa's textile industry.

Beautiful clothes with a worthy cause? What a wonderful way to celebrate the work of an inspiring man!
