3 young local designers – inaugural winners from the Edgars local designer initiative program that ran this year, Sekai Sandamu, Heather Madhlabuta and Kuda Chihungwa will be participating in not just the fashion show but will also have their collections in store. The 3 selected were interns at Edgars manufacturing arm in Bulawayo – Carousel for 3 months. A program that saw them go through the entire manufacturing cycle. Edgars provided this trio with resources from fabric, machinery and required human capital to enable them to put together their ranges something that no clothing retailer has done. Each designer came up with 15 amazing styles and the reproduction was done at Carousel. These collections will be showcased at the invite only fashion show to be held on 26 August and will be on sale in 3 stores as of September 14.
