Bradley Kirshenbaum


It's not every T-shirt company in South Africa that can count local fashion and trend guru Dion Chang among their fans. Bradley Kirshenbaum trained as a graphic designer at Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Israel and then came back to South Africa to work in advertising and for Blue Moon, a below-the-line agency. In April 2005, he launched Love Jozi, going into his homebrewed clothing venture full-time in 2007. Born in Johannesburg, Kirshenbaum's feeling for the city come through not only in the title of his company but in T-shirt designs, which reflect the imagery and issues that permeate South Africa. With images from barbed wire to taxi signs and skyline sketches that call out everything from "Donderdag�, "Previously Advantaged�, "Host City� and "Hungry and Scared�, Kirshenbaum has Jozi all sized up. � Eamon Allan
