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!

Now this is a clothing line we can get behind.

Nelson Mandela's AIDS charity 46664 announced on Tuesday they plan to launch their own international fashion brand this year.

The line will be called 46664 Apparel, after the number Mandela wore will he was in jail, and will roll out in August at the label's very own concept store in Johannesburg, South Africa.

46664 Apparel will include everything from t-shirts to couture garments and will eventually include pieces created by international and national guest designers.

Pretty cool.
