DESIGNER NAME: Chesney Williams BACKGROUND:
The 22 year old Zimbabwean Chesney Williams looked to Morocco for inspiration behind her winning collection. Williams achieved a Diploma in Fashion from Spero Villioti Elite Design. Her love for both art and fashion are the inevitable result of her deep creative nature. “I was inspired to get into the fashion industry as I believe it is the most exciting and fastest growing industry in South Africa – there is never a dull moment!” she said. After designing a gown for Gugulethu Banda, “one of the top ten Finalists in Miss South Africa 2015,” Chesney wanted to further her career with AFI through AFI Fastrack™.
