Fashion designer targets global market

HARARE – Bulawayo-based fashion designer Tichaona Tererai Ziwenga-Kombora has set his sights on the international market.

He said the prevailing economic conditions have not been favourable, a development which forced them to explore other avenues.

Under the brand “Bulawayo Hustler”, he said plans are afoot to expand their brand and set up an outlet in South Africa.

Kombora said they thrive on originality, leading to the brand being appreciated by many and receiving orders from people outside the country.

“The Bulawayo Hustler brand is still going strong since 2014. We are original and that has kept us going. The brand has been accepted well locally and we are also getting orders from outside the country, particularly South Africa and the United Kingdom. We keep representing the City of Kings with pride,” he said.

On opening new outlets, Kombora said: “On February 1, 2019, we are launching a new range of designs and opening shops in Bulawayo and Johannesburg. We have had orders coming from South Africa and we decided it will be a good idea if we make it simple for our clients to simply purchase there.”

Kombora and his crew have made a name for themselves, specialising in designer sportswear, winter and summer wear as well as sweaters.

He said they will be coming in with new designs that will compete on the regional and international level.

“We have new cool designs for our clientele across the globe. New stuff coming up includes head gear: 3D embroidered Snapbacks, beanies as well as baseball caps, crew necks, sweaters among other designs,” he said.

The crew has dressed a number of local artistes.

“We have dressed quite a lot of artistes in the country such as Shinsoman, Seh Calaz and top Bulawayo DJ Mzoe, who is our brand ambassador,” he said.
