Turns out there appears to be a connection between 466/64 Fashion and the Nelson Mandela Foundation after all.

A new statement from the Nelson Mandela Foundation in South Africa spells out the relationship between the two organizations more clearly. Mandela gave the number, 46664 (taken from his prison number), to the Nelson Mandela Foundation Trust, “as a permanent reminder of the sacrifices he was prepared to make for a humanitarian and social justice cause he passionately believed in.” The Nelson Mandela Foundation Trust licensed 46664 Concerts (46664 South Africa) in perpetuity and on a pro bono basis, to use the 46664 brand in addressing issues of social injustice. Since then, 46664 South Africa has been managed by a separate organization, which has its own board, the statement said.
