About this event

Startup Grind Lusaka hosts Chisoma Lombe, founder, president and creative desginer at ChizÓ Designs, a fashion house based in Lusaka. She is the African Fashion Reception appointed ‘African Union Textile Ambassador to Zambia’, the 2016 Zambian Designer of the Year and 2016 African Designer of the year nominee.

Chisoma has showcased her designs at the Rome fashion week in Italy this year, before the Queen and King of Malaysia at the Palace of the Golden Horses and the UNESCO headquarters in Paris (2016). She has also highlighted the South African ‘African Month’ and both the Zambia and the Zimbabwe fashion weeks.

Before starting her own business, Chisoma was finance director at Action Aid International Zambia while she ran her fashion-design hustle on the side. She began to see potential as demand in her designs rose leading her bold move to resign from her job to pursue her dream full time in 2014. Her passion has then attracted international platforms, fashion shows and numerous speaking engagements.

Chisoma was born in Mufulira on the Copperbelt. She attended CBU for a Diploma in Electrical Engineering, which she later stopped to study financial accounting at ZICAS. She is a Chartered Accountant and Fellow of the ACCA.

Come and meet Chisoma as she chats to us about purposefully weaving the fabric of your life.
