Bri Wireduah (Ghana)
Set to hit the #AFWk2016 runway this year is Ghanaian born designer Bri Wireduah. Formally studying as a paediatric nurse for a good amount of time, she later realised she couldn’t contain her creative juice and decided to study fashion to pass away time. After attending JACCD, Bri picked up so much inspiration and eventually decided to pursue fashion as a career by taking various short courses to study menswear, beading and more. In 2012 Bri Wireduah did her first ever show room in her parents garage, at which point she realised her hobby could be turned into a career right in front of her eyes. Below are a few of her designs

ChizÓ by Chisoma Lombe (Zambia)
ChizÓ by Chisoma Lombe is founded by former finance director at Action Aid International ZambiaChisoma Lombe. Currently one of Zambia’s most popular brand, Miss Lombe believes that women are capable of excelling if they are able to identify their strengths and weaknesses in things they do, and this is the basis behind her designs. In November 2013, she bought a sewing machine before employing two female tailors in December of that same year and that’s how ChizO started – she now has a work shop of tailors producing mass amounts for various outlets and public figures in Zambia. Today, Ms Lombe is a popular fashion designer in Lusaka, but her dream is to establish herself as an international designer and travel worldwide to compete on the international market. Her outfits are infused with colourful embroidery, which says, is because she likes to make bright, bold and unique outfits channelling the beauty of nature. Below are a few of her designs
