Ric Chasers: The Denim Don

          Richmond Mlambo aka Ric Chasers

 In the retail industry creativity and appeal matter, irrespective of which facet one specializes in. I  would be appalled if you told me that you do not love off the cuff apparel. Everyone does simply because it gives you unmatched confidence. Keeping you in style is Chasers wear. Styling you up in denim the unorthodox way. You’ ve got to love the Denim Don! He also takes it to pilot, aviator, strap cargo, cargo suits! and it always a distinguished masterpiece. Diverse Fashionista couldn’t help but get into grips chatting to the Denim Don the man behind the brand Chasers Wear. Enjoy!

1. You are popularly known as the ‘Denim Don’ and your denim jacket has become a must have in everyone’s closet. Why denim?

Ric Chasers: (Ecstatic)  I personally love art and denim is a fabric that could allow me to express my art through painting and ripping..with time I figured out that denim is a fabric that actually never goes out of style, hence why they say “Denims are forever!!!” (laughs).


2. Creative expression can take many forms, what made you decide to start your own fashion brand ?

Ric Chasers: I believe it’s something that has just been in me from a young age,I always used to paint my t-shirts and shorts since primary and with time my friends and schoolmates started asking me to paint their t-shirts and jeans too which then gave the birth of my brand. I was always inspired to start my own thing and make it big!

3.There is undeniable creativity attributed to your label, not okay in your apparel but also in your advertising campaigns. If you could describe your creative aesthetic in 5 words what would it be?

Ric Chasers: Oh! how interesting. Well i’ld say 

Luxury!

Unique!

Elegance!

Lifestyle!

Excellence!

4. Your brand is inspiringly fun, using denim brings classic appeal to your apparel and you mix it up with some accessories. How do you strike an appropriate balance between classic and contemporary?


Ric Chasers:
I believe in diversity and I always wanted to bridge the gap between the two, so I started working on designs that could be worn both as casual and streetwear.  That’s how I came up with the idea and designs of cargo suits which is a product that is diverse as it can be worn at any occasion and any environment be it office wear or streetwear.

 5. Your brand caters for both men and women, what do you think of the unisex trend?


Ric Chasers:
I am a strong believer of diversity and innovation, so I support it and most of my products are actually unisex.I also believe it helps in uniting people !

Corporate Wear

6.Your designs are eye catching and memorable, what is your creative design process and what inspires you personally?


Ric Chasers:
I’m always inspired by the fear of being average so I’m constantly creating pieces that makes my clients unique and outstanding whenever they rock my products but Mostly Kanye West and Virgil Abloh are my greatest inspiration.

Well for my creative design process, that’s actually always my hardest  and most demanding stage. I usually take about 1- 3 months to come up with a design and perfect it.So firstly I draw it on my office white board, make  a demo product then hang it in my bedroom wall right opposite my bed,so it becomes something I see last before I sleep and also first thing I look at when I wake up. (laughs). I’m such a perfectionist!  so the process is always long and at times demands sleepless nights.

7.How would you describe the fashion industry in Zimbabwe?


Ric Chasers:
It’s slowly progressing as people are now getting to appreciate and wear local brands, though I feel like they is still a lot that needs to be put in place for example they are less than 5 design schools in the country, no national awards for fashion which I believe these are important things that can help empowering other upcoming designers.

A Brand Pokello Exclusive: The Best or Nothing !

Oh no i didn’t, oh YES I did! Bolt from the blue! Only the best is good enough. As you know Diverse Fashionista blog associates with the finest fashion brands and fashionistas in Zimbabwe. Hats off to whoever coined the word, “SWAGGER!” they definitely had the likes of  people like Pokello Nare the Queen of SWAGGER in mind. Assertive taste CHECK. Sense of Style CHECK. Trendsetter CHECK. Check,Check,Check. It’s safe to label her as a fashion guru in Zimbabwe. She is a sophisticated and ambitious woman who is always pushing boundaries to build an empire. Her brand, ‘Pokello’, has a number of subsidiaries including Pokello Pink Bottoms and Nail Lacquer. Pokello Nare opened her doors to the diverse fashionista, so lets peep into her empire. Join me as i embark on an insightful journey with Pokello into paths that have carved her fashionista attributes and building an empire brand. Enjoy!

 Pokello Nare Business Owner Brand Pokello

1. You have an exceptionally stunning style Pokello, where does your style creative aesthetic come from, and what is your style mantra?

Pokello: (Smiles) My style mantra is like a mixed goodie bag. You get classic and timeless pieces, you get tomboy and casual and then of cause glamour and expensive designers. I’m versatile with my style, it’s relatable but always unforgettable. I love statement pieces, when I dress I want it to look so tasteful that people always refer back to it.

2. For someone who aspires to be a ‘Queen of Swagger’ like you, what would you say are must have in a Fashionista’s wardrobe?

Pokello: In any fashionista’s wardrobe they are 10 must haves:

  •  A white shirt
  •  A little black Dress
  •  A black blazer
  •  Cream formal pants
  •  High waisted Blue Jeans
  •  Nude pointy heels
  •  A black fitted pencil skirt
  •  White pair of trainers
  •  Tan pair of slippers
  •  A Floral Maxi dress

3. As a fashion icon, what would you say is the best way to dress to set yourself out from the crowd when attending a huge event?

Pokello: When dressing for a huge event you want to make a statement. One piece of your clothing must be captivating and if it is an event then I would recommend a hat. Hats are alluring and always draw attention. Personally, my hair is a big factor for me so I prefer not to cover it up. For huge events you can usually find me in a one of a kind dress, because for me a well tailored dress will always turn heads.


4.Can you recall the very first shoe you designed for ‘Pokello Pink Bottoms’? How did you feel when you first saw it being worn in the streets?

Pokello: The first pair of Pink Bottoms shoes that I designed was a classic pointy heel. I had just returned from the reality show Big Brother Africa and I capitalized on the hype that surrounded all the housemates from different countries. I named my first design ‘Housemates’ collection. It encompassed 13 colours, each named after one of the female housemates I had shared the Big Brother Africa experience with. I think I underestimated the reach and impact this would have and it catapulted Pink Bottoms instantly.

  Best seller from the ‘Housemates Collection’ #MotammaMalt

5. ‘Pink Bottoms’ why ‘pink’ in particular?

Pokello: The colour pink was an easy choice for me. During my time in Big Brother Africa, I was a big fashion sensation and everyday one thing always stood out and that was my Pink lipstick. My love for pink lipstick became the decisive factor in the concept creation for Pink Bottoms.

 

Diverse Fashionista: If you are not popping that pink what are you waiting for?

6. How many collections does Pokello Pink Bottoms have? 

Pokello: To date Pink bottoms has launched 12 designs in the 7 years since we established, namely :

  • Housemates collection 
  • Size Me Up
  • Spell My Name
  • Fringe Benefits 
  • Greener Pastures
  • Barely There
  • Bestfriends 
  • Classic 
  • Trophy Wife
  • Camo Boots
  • Summer Perforated
  • Purple Sunset Collection

                Purple Sunset Collection

                             Camo Boots 

                              Classic 

                      Summer Perforated

                         Greener Pastures 

                             Trophy Wife

                    Bestfriends Collection

                           Barely There

                          Spell My Name

7. What is your criteria for a well constructed and designed shoe? 

Pokello: For me a well constructed pair of shoes has the perfect dimensions for our wide, African feet. Most international designers cater only for narrow feet and yet there is a market of African women who love shoes but whose feet can’t last beyond an hour in them, because the toes have no room to sit comfortably. In my designs the toes are my main focus because blisters and bunions should be a thing of the past when it comes to comfort and fit.

8. To help impart some wisdom to an aspiring shoe designer and shoe brand owner, from start to finish, tell us about your shoe design process.

Pokello: The shoe designing process is challenging. The creativity is key because you need to follow the latest trends, then look for the gap within those trends. What is lacking, what would you switch up on a certain design, colour palettes, textures, fabrics. Will you go with suedes or leathers or patents?If it’s leathers, which one. Calf skin, sheep skin or caviar. The footwear industry is vast and constantly evolving. Getting the right manufacturers is fundamental, getting them to understand your vision and the quality you want is even more important. Timelines and deadlines. Quality control requires you to be hands on especially in the inception period.

9.How many shades does Pokello Nail Lacquer have and what makes it different from other Nail polish?

Pokello: (Ecstatic) Pokello Nail Lacquer is definitely the baby I’m most proud of! We have 250 colors. What makes it different from regular nail polish is that it is a Gel polish that is of the highest standard. Once dried under UV light and sealed with it’s top coat it doesn’t chip or peel for 6 weeks. Washing dishes, hand washing clothes or other strenuous house chores will still have it in place. 

                  Pokello  Nail Lacquer

10.Considering your impeccable style and how you have established yourself as a fashion icon. Should we expect a clothing line from you in the near future?

Pokello: The power of the POKELLO brand allows it a foot into any arena we enter into. So much so that we are on an aggressive expansion plan. We have already started designing clothes under our brand as well as collaborations with different designers in Zimbabwe such as Ric Chasers and Haute Couture Guru and Zarguesia. Nothing in the fashion industry is off limits for us.


11. Its safe to call you a retail giant in the Zimbabwe fashion Indusrty, what can shoe lovers expect soon from Pokello Pink Bottoms?

Pokello: As a lover of beautiful footwear, shoe lovers are guaranteed that our brand will continue to grow and produce innovative designs of the highest quality. We haven’t produced a pair of sneakers yet and that’s something that has been in the pipeline which you can expect to see from us. In 2021 we are pushing our creativity up a notch and making designs that leave lasting impressions.

Pokello lives up to the billing of being the best at what she does. Her hardwork has blossomed her to stardom. From the fashion expertise above everything else, the mission statement was simple. Wear something that will make a statement but always remain true to you.

Jimmy brings the swagger

When you’re getting dressed in the morning, you should always wear something that makes you look good, feel good, and most importantly, makes you irresistible to the ladies, (wink wink). A guy might look totally blah most of the time, but how about you just decide to be that kind of guy who walks into a room looking like a supermodel and you even wonder to yourself, What happened? What changed? IS THAT ME! Mens fashion and style is the easiest as compared to the ladies. One need not to even go all out just to look good. The fashionista of the week Jimmy defines his style simple and sexy! We got some tips for you on how to pull that off. Enjoy!

1. Jimmy wakes up in the morning, how do you get ready to dress up for a day out in the city?

Jimmy: I fancy my fitness and body looks, I take a jog and then do push ups a max of 100 before going to the shower. That sets my mood and gets me ready to conquer the day (smiles). I’m the type of guy who chooses his “outfit” the day before, so it’s already in mind or out of the wardrobe and ready to kill . I’m a 20-30+ minute shower guy, wierd I know (laughs) but I even got nicknames such as slow coach, mageza  (one that baths) and Mlava because of that (laughs). I take my time dressing up, one has got to feel the clothes. Have a connection with them and I’m set to go.

2. What are some of your current fashion obsessions?
Jimmy: PALSE_SA is my faviorite brand.Im a fan of their Summer and Spring collections, the shorts/shirts have a sassy and comfortably looking feel that ild go for any day. Im also a fan of Ara Kani their diverse designs draw me personally to my African roots. They always use details that leave you at the edge of a seat. I’m an all rounder type of dresser ,I guess that means I fit or look good in casual or formal or anything (laughs).

3.Its summer, how can a gentleman look good with this heat?
Jimmy: Nicely cut and well fitting clothes are the trick. Don’t over or under dress. Trendy summer shirts and shorts are the way to go. You can never go wrong with an all black or all white t-shirt too, not forgetting a clean pair of flip flops. 

I personally think the trick is being as comfortable as possible throughout the heat, and just as a cherry on top A CLEAN HAIRCUT IS A MUST!

 Diverse Fashionista: For the summer have a pair of shorts.Probably the one garment most associated with summer are shorts.When the sun starts scorching, everybody’s quick to grab a pair of shorts.So what you should remember about shorts, and this should be obvious, is that they are casual by nature. N.b There is no formal occasion in which shorts are acceptable.

2. Shirts, of course. You can (and should) also throw some shirts in your summer style mix.Shirts are a stylish step up from plain T-shirts. They’re just classier. I don’t think you always have to wear a shirt, but definitely when you want to make a good impression on someone a shirt is good.
3.Pants-It might seem counter intuitive, but often times pants can keep you cooler than shorts. Pants have the added benefit of keeping your skin shielded from the direct sunlight. With the right kinds of fabrics, you will sweat less and actually be more comfortable wearing pants than shorts.Most of your pants should be in neutral colors, as they’ll go better with your colorful summer tees and shirts.

4.Whats your opinion for guys and wearing skinny jeans. Do you think they are for everyone?

To be honest NO! they’re not for every guy and I think where most guys miss it is what they wear with those skinny jeans , especially the shoes or sneakers.
I will do say though that I personally wasn’t a skinny jeans guy , until I started working out my legs in the gym.Dont underestimate good legs in skinny jeans. Fashion sense is potent to how you’ll rock the jeans.My advice would be though just get a well fitting jean instead.
 Diverse Fashionista: #serious talk Skinny jeans will not look good with very slim and tall men, as they will draw attention to their thin legs. In the same way, they do not fit men with big upper body (too muscular or round), as they will create an exaggerated imbalance in appearance. Now to how they should fit you. PLEASE! If you cannot easily pull your skinny jeans past your calves or thighs, they are too small and you need to go up one size. Your jeans should fit snugly against your skin, but you should still be able to pinch about an inch of slack at the top of you thigh.

5. What kind of an outfit would you advise for a man for a first date with a beautiful Miss?

Jimmy: No brainer (smiles) as a gentleman ild say a suit, nothing like a well tailored man in a well tailored suit. I think a well tailored simple suit.For the more casual guys you could go for chinos or a jean with a shirt and formal jacket and probably sneakers or formal shoes depending on the pants. This look could go with location setting, for example if you’re meeting her at a chilled bar.Otherwise for myself i stan for a full Well Tailored Suit.

7.Whats the best way to set yourself out from the crowd when attending a huge event?

Jimmy: As a guy :

  1.  The cleanliness of your hair and face cut.
  2. The fit of your clothes on your body.
  3. The way that you simply match the apparel you choose from head to toe. Let your belt match your shoes always.
  4. A very great scent, people take this one for granted. Just try imagine a handsome looking Jimmy in a stunning sexy suit, only for you to get closer to him and he’s got body odour from a distance (laughs).

Diverse Fashionista: I hope everyman who reads this writes this down.Smelling good is one of the most important things of one’s personality. If you want to leave a lasting impression that is. People remember you if you look good, but if you also smell great in addition to that, then you have an instant fan-following. Find your perfect scent.Finding the perfect one is hard work, but it’s a job you should put some effort into because it’ll make a world of difference. Take some time to seek out scents that click with your personality. That right whiff will bring serious pleasure to your everyday life.
8.Tuck in the shirt or leave it out?
Jimmy: With formal pants and formal shoes , definitely tuck it in. Make sure its neat. Some guys make the mistake of letting their shirts fly out at their sides or back. An absolute No No! With jeans and sneakers you re free to leave it out.
9. Define your fashion statement.
Jimmy: Simple but very sexy and alluring.

This wraps up it up from Jimmy the fashionista. So remember to step up, look good and most importantly smell good too nothing more attracting than a fine man with a lasting impression.

Brand: PVO Threads

It’s safe to say PVO Threads is a trendsetter.It is the sort of clothing brand you do not define with one word lest you confine it with limited views. PVO has a knack of ticking multiple boxes, from matching style and class with luxury and comfort. They are unique no matter how one chooses to put it. This is far from exaggeration to heap praise the clothing brand, it’s all evident. You’ll fall in love. A chit chat with one of the brand owners Tendai had me interested to ask…..

Diverse Fashionista: What inspired the name PVO as a trademark for your clothing brand?
Tendai: A couple of years ago I saw a picture of a yatcht on Instagram with the phrase “POSITIVE VIBES ONLY” embedded on it. It instantly resonated with me as I am also a firm believer in always staying positive no matter your circumstances so I shared it on my social media pages and it became like my mantra. PVO started from that picture of the yatcht that i shared on my social media  one of my friends saw it and just encouraged me to think of getting entrepreneurial with it and said to me

 “you know you can start making caps with the phrase Positive Vibes Only on them?” 

That idea hit me like a light bulb and I immediately reached out to my cousin who’s a graphic designer to assist me with a logo design etc and I reached out to some manufacturers to have some samples made then as they say, the rest is history. We are here now.

PVO Threads is a family-owned business with a number of international partners.Now this means  you can find the brand all around the world. They’ll follow you everywhere you go.In the UK you’ll find them, Zimbabwe, Australia, USA, Dubai you name it! Now that’s a brand open for business and not confined by boundaries.

Anyone who believes in POSITIVITY and is all about POSITIVE VIBES ONLY is a target customer for PVO Threads. The apparel believes that the message should resonate first then the apparel compliments that and is the vessel that carries the message. 

Brand owner Tendai says, “We will always lead with the message POSITIVE VIBES ONLY and that’s what separates us from every other clothing brand that is in existence right now.”

Getting into the nitty gritties of the the designs, PVO Threads is an urban contemporary street wear brand and currently designs range from caps (snapbacks and strapbacks), socks, slides, t-shirts, and flip flops. 

For PVO Threads, creativity does not sleep so  customers can definitely look forward to more designs and more apparel coming. Currently they are looking at expanding the range to include tracksuits, hoodies, hoodie dresses, biker shorts for females and so much more. You’ll definitely have a range to choose from!

Questioned on what has been their best selling design so far as a brand Tendai says,” Our best selller right now has been the distressed strapback, this has been a staple favourite with our customers and its best features are its quality, comfort and versatility to suit many different ages.” The brand is however confident that all their other designs are still best sellers as they have all sold out!

Brand:CapAwes

Diverse Fashionista blog is yet again here with a bag! Striving to give you nothing but the best.As you know I associate with the finest clothing brands to keep you in style. Bringing you Brand CapAwes.They stand out as not so usual. CapAwes is the brand with a difference, with so much creativity it is safe to name them high fashion design.

The clothing line run by the young Albert Muzuwa from Zimbabwe affirms that CapAwes is a true definition of when sophistication meets style. So star struck about the name i couldn’t help but ask what inspired the name ‘CapAwes‘ as a trademark for the clothing brand. Albert says, “CapAwes is named after my nick name ‘Captain Awsome‘, so i just took half and half and created a name, decided to be creative and unique,” (laughs). Now, the creativity and uniqueness not only lives in the name of the brand alone, they encompass this even in their brand designs as well. 

Every brand has a story to tell. Capawes dates back to 2018 when brand owner Albert was in high school where he used to print his own designs. He caught the attention of multiple students who admired his creativity. Having realized his talents he continued to push  towards his vision and to date he works alongside with his brother Admore Mkwanda creating more stunning designs for the brand. When founder Albert looks back with hindsight, he still reflects and admits that indeed “Capawes started all out by grace,” saying this so proud of how much the brand continues to grow till date.

The brand is mainly targetted for the youth and has become popularly known by most Zimbabwean university students creating that “if you not rocking CapAwes what are you waiting for?”. Best believe, anyone seen rocking this label sets themselves apart by being extra stylish and unique. Capawes ticks so many boxes for the fashionistas. Whatever you looking for they have you covered.Designs made range from cargo wear, bikers, tube dresses, baseball jackets, tshirts dresses the list is endless, best you visit their social media pages after this blog article!

With summer coming up customers should set themselves to look forward to their new CapaAwes summer wear collection. Now this includes croptops, biker tube dresses, body suits, vests, bumshorts, base ball tees and much more. I guess you do realize that their list is always endless, goodluck on making a choice or how about you grab it all!

So far the brand safely justifies their cargo tracksuits as their best selling design. One that literally had masses talking, at the same time boosting sales for the brand. Now, thats music to the ears for any business owner.

Brand Owner Albert is confident to say CapAwes is simply the BEST. He couldn’t help but mention how proud he is that the popularity of the brand has grown so much to an extent that the clothing line has  featured in multiple music videos, dramas, while also getting some celebrities to dress in the brand. Now i guess this gives you every reason to get off your seat and rush off to see what more amazing designs indeed they have on offer that can get you into style too!

Brand: SVG-SAVAGE

Welcome to a fashion destination with the exquisite SVG Exclusive Wear. Best you describe it as

“CLASSIC WEAR & EXPENSIVE TASTE”~A.Phiri (one of the youngest African self made millionaire & business man affirms)

Maybe my inclination with fashion makes it easy to heap praise the brand. SVG is set to ‘WOW’ you in style as they have a knack of ticking multiple boxes. From simplicity while sophisticated, to stylish, youthful and classy. You name it! The creative minds behind the stunning brand are Nkosinathi and Ntandoyenkosi Phiri commonly known as ‘The Ray Studios Brothers’. This is only the beginning they continue to push the brand to greater heights. The saying goes, “high risks! high rewards!” and SVG is not done yet.

Quizzed on what inspired the name SVG as a trademark for their clothing brand Nkosilathi says,” Growing up, me and brother were constantly surrounded by young people who had so many ideas but never worked on them and this was heart-breaking. We realized there was need to remind people of the power they possess and it is here where we realized only ‘a true savage’ can emerge victorious in this world.”

The two young business men refer to the name “Savage” in the sense of making a mark and being bold in their pursuit for  greatness.They are inspired by the fear of being average. Therefore   brand SVG was created for people to “UNLEASH THEIR INNER BEAST’’ and never dare to quit in achieving their dreams. This therefore means anyone who rocks SVG should wear it with boldness and confidence.

The clothing brand was initially launched in 2019 and the reception was nothing short of phenomenal.Currently the Ray Studio brothers are working with a well established team with expertise in graphic designing, research, marketing and a wonderful mentor who has been nothing but inspirational.

SVG sets themselves apart as each clothing piece of theirs has been manufactured in superior quality and in limited quantities. The exclusive wear represents a strong culture towards people with a burning desire to not just change the world but to be the world. Hence, their target audience attracts those who live to make a mark in the world as a constant reminder to the people on how what you wear can reflect who you are, and with SVG you are ‘a true savage’.


Wondering what designs the brand specialises in? The clothing line currently specialises in hoodies, sweaters, turtle necks, dresses, t-shirts and bottoms but it intends to diversify more into formal wear as time progresses. SVG: Savage sees itself as one of the top dominators of the clothing industry in Africa in the next 5 years and aims to create a worldwide culture that represents confidence, strength, greatness and determination reflected through its clothing.

Their best selling piece is The SVG: Savage ® Limited Edition Black Crop Hoodie which sold out in just 14 days! one of the brand owners Nkosilathi remarkably says, “we had pre-orders for this piece amounting to almost 33% of the stock for this exclusive piece. Countless customers enquire about this clothing piece almost on a daily basis!”


As of  moment SVG: Savage ® completely operates online and they have distribution points in Harare,Zimbabwe (Sam Levy Village) and in the CBD, they also have a delivery option to anywhere in Zimbabwe and Internationally.
