Projecto Mental was founded by Angolan duo Shunnoz Fiel & Tekasala Ma’at Nzinga and is a brand that fuses fashion and art. Projecto Mental was created in the aftermath of the Angolan civil war to help reshape the country’s cultural identity. Specialised in avant-garde tailoring, Projecto Mental designs suits with an experimental twist for both men and women.

Projecto Mental participated in the Pitti Uomo “Constellation Africa” show with the support of the Ethical Fashion Initiative and the Pitti Fondazione Discovery. Projecto Mental was one of the winners of the Ethical Fashion Initiative’s African Designer Competition launched in December 2014.
