MEET BRITISH BORN DESIGNER, DAVID ALFORD

David Alford is a British fashion designer born and bred in United Kingdom but presently based in Harare, Zimbabwe. He had his fashion education between 2007 and 2009 outside London and relocated to Zimbabwe in 2011.

In 2014 David Alford set up a fashion studio in Harare and retook his interest in fashion designing. The biggest appeal to him about fashion designing was the idea of fantasy, drama and theatre. The fact that being able to combine all these elements into runway shows and garments to create a non existing world with a brand was perhaps the biggest draw for him. DAVID ALFORD

As fashion designer, David Alford has showcased his brand at events like HIFA 2015, Zimbabwe Fashion Week 2015, Accra Fashion Week 2016, Nairobi Fashion Week 2016 and Africa Fashion Reception (Paris, France) 2016 to name a few.

David Alford’s most prized possession, is his studio space, as it has an amazing energy and most importantly where he feels happiest and enjoys the best of content.

The British fashion designer, said working in Zimbabwe is full of many challenges, however he had been incredibly amazed at the vast and varied amount of work he has been able to get done in between. From shooting fashion films on Green Screen to laser cutting fabrics, he said there are many people in Zimbabwe trained in many useful skills. You only need to get out and find them.

David Alford is a multiple award winning fashion entrepreneur, who had won several awards, such as Designer of the year at Zim Fashion Week 2015 and recently won Best Couture Designer at the Style Oracle fashion awards and Best Designer of the year 2016, at Zim Model Awards to name a few.

During a recent interview with NaijaOnlineTV, David Alford revealed Alexander McQueen was the reason he became interested in fashion, he called him a genius. David Alford is presently working on his brand’s winter 2017 collection in preparation for New York Fashion Week in February.

However his favourite location spot is during his trips to London, as it’s the only time he gets to see his family.


Alford relaxes by meeting with friends, having dinners. However he has been the one styling Zimbabwean music queen and celebrity, Hope Masike. If David Alford had not been a fashion designer, he would have been a pilot.
