  1. yaba very primitive designs, anyway from the list it seems these designers are all UPND as one can tell 3/4 are TONGAZ, just check the design of UPND REGALIA, close to bakachema ng’ombe

  2. And you call most of these as designs? Fuseke. Zambia has gone to the dogs like PF has taken Zambians to the dogs. Did people confess for these most of these designs? Maybe you will force others to introduce the moderate Islamic dressing code in Zambia. I live in the West and i have never seen some of these useless designs.

So what are these so called designers wanting to achieve?

  4. Karen Nakamba, excellent colour play and fresh uncomplicated design. Naomi Phiri, sophisticated work to play wear, lose the Dude next time.

    Popoka nice play with the Tea Dress? Yellow and black palette not too bad, love the first blue yellow. Sweet!
    Mo creations great kid wear. Very in designing for kids.
    Tlale, accomplished but not innovative enough. Needs to be on international stage. Nice and fresh all round. Er….Debbie Chu great future in Fetish wear! What’s with the mouth pieces?!

  5. Yabangu……because you do not understand fashion designs. Leaving in the west does not make you a master of fashion. You are just one villager leaving in the west.

  7. @Muchinga, leave Yabangu alone. She has gone place than you will go in your life life and she is not a village girl. We need good fashion and not stupid designs to just waste money and appeal to you for a second. The one for the kids and one or two others are ok. But can you wear the first one by Phiri for us on any street

  8. Living in the west doesn’t you better then anyone else,youwork seven days a week ,doing minor jobs to pay bills. Many,many americans,Germans,English etc – look at Africa as the best place toinvest and live in.Ukukilila ku mushu plus little education,bwafya.

    • Really? Africa as the best place to live in? Maybe as a great place to go on a vacation. Health facilities are still stone-age. Safety is not above average, and corruption is rampant at all levels. Of course some foreigners move to Africa, but don’t make it sound like a hot button issue.

    • Sorry Karen. It’s actually B. Nkwenda whose designs I love. One thing noticeable on models are the scars on the legs. We need to do better with skin infection control. Some of the models are also out of shape. You don’t need to be skeletal like Western models but don’t look like ‘things’ are out to burst out or spill over either.

  9. I guess it is impossible to present an argument or comment without aligning it to a political party, smh. Is there anything that exists outside PF/UPND? It would be nice to read critics talk about fashion on an article about fashion.

  10. FEMALE Models are not good looking at all. Am sure and I know Zambia has a lot of good looking women.
