Bringing slow fashion to South Africa

Adrian Heneke grew up surrounded by fabric, machines and seamstresses. So it was no coincidence that his love for fashion, tailoring and garments inspired him to launch BillyNOW.

This is Africa and we express ourselves in the way we want to, and that’s exciting. That’s the creative emergence of fashion and design from South Africa.

Growing the business

Eight months after starting his business, Adrian started using Xero. It helps him to take care of the accounting side of the business, so he can focus on his own business of creating beautiful clothing.
