Displays of an array of art work and designs are all over Chinhoyi as 4th year students from Chinhoyi University of Technology’s School of Creative Art and Design are exhibiting a collection of products conceptualised since 2015.
Fashion designer Tilda Muyambiri has on exhibition a collection of a wide range of designs some of which have been given a thumbs up by industry for commercialisation.
While some of the designs are influenced by the western taste, she also found inspiration from the Ndebele culture, and designed regalia synonymous with the Ndebele tradition.
Her fellow student, Michael Chitapi, who specialises in fine art titled his exhibition collection ‘Endeless Creativity’, aptly so, owing to the diversity of situations, moods and life experiences captured and depicted in his artifacts.
One of the artifacts, titled ‘Lasting Love’, is a celebration of a legacy of love between two grannies, whom the passage of time has failed to separate.
With the hit song “Kanjiva” having pervaded almost every social aspect of life in Zimbabwe, another artist who is into creative design, Ellain Mazwati could not resist the temptation to name one of her works, ‘Kanjiva’.
The work depicts pleasurable moments.
The exhibition season was launched recently in Chinhoyi amid glamorous displays by fashion show models.
