Desre Buirski - Mandela's Shirt and Me - The story of the creation of a global icon.

How do you describe the day a dream comes true?

"A picture of Die Burger shows Nelson Mandela at the dress rehearsal for the opening of Parliament. It was printed on Wednesday, 11th May, 1994. It was taken just before he stepped into his rightful place in South African history. He is surrounded by security guards and dignitaries. Every man in the picture is wearing a conservative double-breasted coat and tie. President Mandela looks relaxed, as if he is just a visitor rather than the center of attention. He had been elected President just two weeks before in South Africa’s first free and truly democratic election.

The eyes of the world are now on him.

President Mandela is wearing a loose black cotton batik print shirt with brown fish swimming across the chest. It’s my shirt he is wearing …”

This is the story of how the President became to wear my shirt that day – and how it became a global icon in the exciting years that followed.
