It’s my pleasure to share with you one of my favorite African designers Francis, with his line Francis Zahabu ( zahabu means Gold in kinyarwanda ). His talent is remarkable and not only I’m a one of his biggest fans, I’m proud to call him my friend.
Francis and I had a recent chat and he shared few things about his line, his dreams and inspirations.
Francis said ” I’m inspired by anything I see, hear or see. Every piece I make has to match the person’s personality.”
He also shared that he doesn’t want to limit himself or just creat a simple piece with a logo, but design a custom made, out the box and produce ambient brand that customers can appreciate.
Francis clothing line has everything one can want, from T-shirts, suits, shirt, skirts, suits and dresses. With his great African materials and mix matching creativity, his cloths can be wearable by any age range or any occasion, suck ad casual wear, to wedding ceremonies, staff uniforms, etc…
Francis has participated in:
*Rwanda Day UK 2013
* Kigali fashion week 2012
* SALAX Awards 2012
* Alga Fashion Show
* Designed the dressing code to Miss KIE 2012 and Miss Rwanda 2012 contestants and sponsor NUR 2012.
The list goes on from dressing artists, movie stars and creating Uniforms for many big African companies.
Francis lastly said ” our mission is to what everyone had seen but think what no one else has thought, and take it to an other level. ” Francis, you are such an inspiration and as a friend I can’t help but be very proud and wish you many many more blessings and success.
