Oliver Mtukudzi is set to make his debut on the fashion scene by showcase some of his designer stage outfits.
Mtukudzi would be participating at this year's Zimbabwe Fashion Week (ZFW) that runs from September 3-6.
He will display selected outfits from his music career spanning from 1978 to 2014.
Said Mtukudzi: "Zimbabwe Fashion Week is our own, it is a home-grown platform at which we should shine and showcase our true creativity with pride.
"I am taking part in this year's event to show my support and to encourage other Zimbabweans to do the same. There is a lot that we can showcase as Zimbabweans, let's use this platform to promote ourselves and our identity.
"We need something to identify with in terms of fashion and this is a great starting point," he told the Herald.
Mutukudzi, one of Zimbabwe's most accomplished musicians with 63 music albums to his credit, designs his own stage gear.
"My stage outfits have been inspired by my music throughout my career.
"They are in tune with the beat and that differentiates me from other artistes".
