Nowadays social media is the business card that most people don’t have to pay for but have to carefully craft in order to make sure it’s received the way they intend. While searching hashtags and scrolling one day, I came across the Instagram of Craig Zoowie. I was impressed by the colors, the fashion and the subject matter I noticed in his photos. I had to know more. Once I did, I then know this was a person who we must share with our readers.
Tell us more about you and the Craig Zoowie brand.
I am Craig Zoowie. My brand takes after me in personality, taste, and essence. I would like to think I’m a wholesome individual with a unique sense of style and that in turn influences the niche that my brand caters to. I’m not trying too hard and I’m not trying to impress anyone. I’m just being Craig Zoowie. Any impression you have of the Craig Zoowie brand is a carefully curated DNA of who I am as an individual, consultant, and stylish. That, in essence, is what I’m about.
How do you feel that you have influenced the industry in Zimbabwe?
I wouldn’t venture to say an industry but rather style culture in Zimbabwe has certainly evolved. Nothing intentional, but I would like to think men in Zimbabwe are slowly emerging out of their conservative sense of style and certainly becoming more daring in flouting their individuality without always seeking to be the same as the guy next door. I’ve never sought to conform or follow the crowd, and the more I see of that sense of freedom in style the more I’m inclined to pop a bottle of champagne.
How do you feel like Zimbabwe’s culture can influence the world?
Zimbabwe has a rich heritage that has been made uninteresting by certain people. We need to reclaim that first and show the world our true essence.
What is that one piece of advice you’ve held onto and motivates you?
Be yourself, be selfish with yourself. You matter!
