Processed with MoldivDawn said: “It’s great to have the support of Councillor Raymond Hassall. Zimbabwe Fashion Week UK will be a really positive thing for Birmingham and I really do believe that events like these can bring a community together.”


In a party atmosphere, Chiedza has provided the platform for lots of possibilities for business networking annually from now on. Everyone attending will have opportunities to make new connections, build relationships and discuss ways to continue raising the profile of Zimbabwe fashion. Others, of course, will be building on professional relationships already established. Given the creative talents attending this fabulous event, the team are confident this is just the beginning of a great future.


Coinciding with American Independence Day, the all day fashion extravaganza will sashay into action from 11am and go on until midnight at the Crown Banqueting venue, in Digbeth, Birmingham. Inspired by the hugely successful African Fashion Week in London and other fashion events around the globe, hostess and organiser, Chiedza Ziyambe says: 


“Our U.K. celebration of all things Zimbabwe fashion, art and design related will be the first showcase of its kind in the U.K. We are all so excited, because there is a real hunger for African couture and street fashions here in recent years. African designs and apparel can now achieve their rightful place in the global fashion market; we want to really kick start things here in the heart of the U.K.”


The fashion event provides an opportunity to preview the work of designers from Zimbabwe. Attendees will get to see the breadth of creative talent, which has contributed to Zimbabwe’s reputation as one of the best countries for producing fashion. African prints have become a huge trend in large international fashion houses and many of the designers ready to showcase are sure to shine in the spotlight. 


If you are looking for mouth-watering designs, there are still a few tickets available. “We want people to go to Zimbabwe Fashion Week’s website for a taste of what’s to come, but be part of our rebranding, because we are going to build our profile all year round and across the world.”


Tickets are now on sale on the Eventbrite website and can be purchased here. Prices start at £30.00 for a standard ticket and increase to £65.00 for a VIP ticket.
