Happy New Year from us at Fashion Weekend Zimbabwe. Last year (July to be exact) we opened a design incubator in the heart of the Zimbabwean Design District called KUSIKA Design Centre. The incubator has taken a life of it’s own and grown not only as the home of Fashion Weekend Zimbabwe, but the district of design. We continue to be driven by a strategic commitment to spur economic development in the fashion and design sector. As our work continues to evolve to include more collaboration between designers and artisans, we are re-energised by the creative talent we see in Zimbabwe and look forward to a year of design, production and trade.

Recently opened KUSIKA Design Centre, a product of Fashion Weekend Zimbabwe (FWZ), will host the Harare workshops in collaboration with Zedlabel and Mustard Seed Africa. KUSIKA which means “to create” in Shona is a new workspace for designers and artisans, with facilities for them to foster their creations and designs, all in the comfort of a creative environment. The centre boasts a manufacturing unit, a training room, a coworking space and a resource centre. For more visit KUSIKA Design Centre.
