© ZIMBABWEAN award-winning luxury event designer, fashion and food stylist, Craig “Mr Luxury” Zoowie, pictured, is currently internationally trending for 2019 best Street Style looks with his exquisite fashion and style that he took to the Pitti Uomo trade show in Florence, Italy which ran from June 11 to 13. Better known for exuding class and elegance, Zoowie is an individual and brand synonymous with luxury.

The trendsetter was recently featured on internationally-acclaimed fashion magazines like Elle USA and Essence as well as on various social media platforms for the stylish and exquisite style he displayed at Pitti Uomo. “It is really humbling to be recognised internationally amongst some of the best dressed people at such a prestigious event,” said Zoowie in an interview with the Daily News.

The luxury stylist said Italy, which is one of the fashion capitals of the world with such an awesome culture and eye for detail from their fine fabrics to the tailoring as well as some of the best leather in the world, had always been one of his dream destinations.

Zoowie has been in Florence for over a week visiting museums, enjoying the Italian cuisine and meeting some amazing fashion and event impresarios and he said when his calendar had cleared, he had decided to definitely include Pitti Uomo in his itinerary. 

“The international recognition I have received during my time here means we are on the perfect fashion and style track as Zimbabweans to even have meaningful conversations regarding our own locally-produced fashion,” he said.

He added that he was absolutely proud to wear all his looks, which were made by local fashion designers like Blaque Excellence by Natasha Kagoro and TZM Fashion House who produce The Craig Zoowie Collection who are also great tourism ambassadors of Zimbabwe.

Furthermore, ELLE has described the show as a place bringing hoards of handsome, well-dressed men (and women!) to Fortezza da Basso. According to ESSENCE, Pitti Immagine Uomo is more than just another street style opportunity for fashion’s most stylish gentlemen.

In fact, Pitti Uomo is a popular biannual menswear trade show in Florence, Italy, where a slew of editors, retailers, buyers, bloggers/influencers and menswear enthusiasts from around the world flock together see the latest designs.”

The four-day event is known as a unique platform that is a notch above any other traditional fashion trade shows because of its magnitude, as well the show is an exceptional platform to mix and mingle with top international fashion designers as well as get acquaintance with the world’s best independent brands.
