Chiedza Dawn Ziyambe founder of the Miss Chii lingerie brand grew up surrounded by lushly coloured neighbouring gardens. Changing seasonal colours and natural features comforted and inspired her as a young girl and nurtured a taste for colour, pattern and design as she took in that environment growing up.
Aspiring to be a designer from a tender age and being interested in how things work from a technical perspective, she first undertook engineering training at a U.K. university. While this learning satisfied some of her passion, she needed an outlet for more personal expression and creativity involving her first love: colour and textiles. Nevertheless, her new-found skills and knowledge were invaluable in designing her first collection of ‘Miss Chii’s lingerie’ in 2013, which exhibit technical excellence in design of lingerie that demands improved performance.
