#ZFWSeries VI: Urban Africentric Men’s Fashion #ZWAGGA


The current rave so far is African print clothing! Not only has pages been famous for posting these pictures, designers in Zimbabwe have taken this opportunity. These include Zuvva, by Joyce Chimanye, fashion designer and top Zimbabwean brand. As well as the new kids on the fashion block Tanya Mushayi (Diesel + EDUN feature) and MUCHA by Editor of JEWEL. Tsitsi.

This trend has caught the attention and adoption by Men as well. Seen on foreign style pictures from other part of Africa and Diaspora on Big Brother Africa, Mr Tehn Diamond showed his “ZWAGGA” in a custom outfit he co-designed with MUCHA.

I was interning at JEWEL at the time and doing some part-time MUCHA job at that time when he came for the fitting for his bold African print outfit. And everyone in production LOVED it. Take a leap and start a conversation about your statement fashion.
