ZAA 2012 Fashion Highlights

ZAA 2012 ,  was most definitely a night to remember in Zimbabwean fashion history.  Men rocked tuxedos and bow ties and some in tuxedo and tie combinations. Ladies wore African designs, long gowns and shorter ones.  Bold colours, pastels,  prints, and black and white all featured. Zimbabweans pulled out all the stops on the red carpet that night. If you are a Zimbabwean fashionista, this was one night not to be missed.

Chipo Chung (above left) made us green with envy in an embellished top half v-neck dress by UK-based designer, Adele Kaseke of Curvyswan. She finished off this ensemble with a swept back pixie cut. 

Viola Ncube (above right), winner of The Female Entrepreneur of the Year award glammed it up in a white studded dress by Versace for H&M, accessorised with a green chiffon scarf down her left shoulder. her legs looked to-die-for in the green-shimmered 6 inch heels.

Conrad Mwanza,the founder of ZAA looked very dapper in a tuxedo that he spiced up with a polka dot bow-tie and pocket square. To compliment his ensemble, his wife Aisha Guest wore an Afro print green and white dress. A best dress nominee.

 A red one shoulder dress, with a side ruffle and embellishment worn by the gorgeous,  Charlene Mukuzvazva, who won the Event and Promoter of The Year award was definitely a winner. She complimented this ensemble with a two-toned, side swept hair-do. Charlene, you are on our best dressed list.

 Tawanda Chiwira,  the two- time Olympian, dressed to impress in a three-piece tuxedo. The black blazer and white shirt combined with the polka dot tie made the whole ensemble pop against his skin tone. He was accompanied by his stylist pregnant wife, El Cee Chic, who styled him on the night. She wore an orange-red ruched top-half grecian-style dress, glammed up by the short bob. This couple looked di-vine.

Shingai Shonhiwa (above left) dressed like a star in a very fashion-forward short bustier  pvc-leather dress with a braided up-do

Cynthia Hungwe showed up in her own design, looking tre chic, wearing. a tribal print skirt and bow-tie, topped off with a black blazer. Her hair was worn in a cool pompadour. She looked very original.

Dennis Mawazi, winner of The Company of the Year Award looked very elegant in his tuxedo, he finished this look off with a red bow-tie.

 Blackarmoor fashion designer of the year Gray Rwangah did not disappoint in a grey tux worn with a wine-red bow-tie, and a dapper cap
