Harare, Zimbabwe – Danayi Chapfika is a Zimbabwean designer based in Johannesburg, South Africa and frequently comes to Harare her hometown. I met her at the Styled By Africa Garden Party as she had a stall and changing board set up.
It’s when I saw a cute dress in floral upholstery material that I realised she was a star. She has a chiffon yellow jumpsuit on display, heavy denim pieces and a beautiful orange suede skirt. She used fabrics normally used for furniture to magnificent pieces. The chiffon yellow jumpsuit looked fabulous I HAD to try it on!
What I liked about her was her natural swag and bubbly attitude to the people who approached her stall. Almost like she has known every single person for years. So far she has a TUMBLR account danayi.tumblr.com which has her stuff. This is where I sourced her pictures as well.
This is a sneak peak about the amazing talented force fresh out of LISOF.
