Birmingham plays host to Zimbabwe Fashion Week UK this year, with emerging designers from Zimbabwe showcasing their designs in this first of its kind exhibition. The fashion event will take place at The Crown Banqueting Hall, Birmingham on July 4th.
Zimbabwe Fashion Week UK is a collaboration between a group of designers and culture vultures, who came together out of a shared passion for all things Zimbabwean. The first of it’s kind in the UK, Zimbabwe Fashion Week UK will showcase some of the most exciting Zimbabwean designers working today.
Zimbabwe is ready to step out of the shadow of this blanket misunderstanding. With designers from all over the country, this unique fashion event will bring emerging designers and gifted musicians all under one roof. A celebration of Zimbabwe talent in the UK, it will champion new and emerging artists by giving them a platform to share their designs and music in front of influential media, buyers, bloggers and VIP guests. It will also give those attending the opportunity to network with a wealth of vibrant and passionate fashion design talent from Zimbabwe.
For one day, the magnificent Crown Banqueting Hall in Birmingham will play host to the fashion event from 11am to midnight on July 4th. Founder of Zimbabwe Fashion Week UK, Chiedza Dawn Ziyambe explains: “We aim to bridge the perceived gaps between Zimbabwean fashion and global fashion trends. This showcase will give Zimbabwean designers the opportunity to reach out to consumers globally and help them gain the recognition they deserve in the UK fashion industry.”
With African prints becoming a huge trend in large international fashion houses, many of the talented designers are sure to shine in the spotlight. The creators of Zimbabwe Fashion Week UK know that African designs and apparel have yet to really make an impact and achieve their rightful place in the global fashion market. This event intends to right this wrong and introduce fashion professionals from Zimbabwe to the right audience.
The show will also allow you to purchase some of the stunning pieces and unique creations from the emerging designers, allowing you to ensure your wardrobe is on-trend for the season ahead.
Zimbabwe Fashion Week UK is still looking for designers and sponsors for the event. If you would like to get involved then please contact Dawn on: 07845062100.
