I am actually currently working on starting an orphanage Centre which in turn I pray to God that will turn out to be very successful, it’s my ultimate dream to be able to help those children.

What first attracted you to fashion?

The time I really decided that I was going into fashion, was after I took part in the Beauty Pageant (Miss Zambia UK Beauty Pageant), this was an amazing experience and that I really enjoyed being a part of and what’s more this was for a very good cause as well, so it was like doing something I really love and at the same time giving back to the people.

You’re unique in that you’re a CEO, a model, and a designer, among other things. Do you think having all these roles has given you a unique perspective on the fashion industry?

Most certainly, in that as a young industrialist in the fashion business, I greatly comprehend what my company should offer to the young and ever-changing generation. My fashion background allows me to make sure that the products I am offering is luxurious, affordable and fashionable catering for all members of the society. And also having worked for charity projects, and having an African background gives me all the motivation and dedications I need to go forward with my projects.

Tell us a bit about your work with Be Gorgeous Styles.
Well after taking part in the fashion shows, I figured I love fashion and what’s greater is that I create and design my own clothes and also to let other people experience and look gorgeous in my own fashion designs.

You’re also the CEO of ZBIL, a charity organization. Your designs have received a lot of praise. Can you tell us a bit about your design process?

I believe, it is important to stay updated with the latest trends in the fashion styles in order to achieve real confidence and attractiveness in the middle of a crowd. Anyway, what are the things that embody the latest trends in the stated industry? In order to find the latest changes in the field of fashion style industry, look into the latest models of accessories and footwear that were created for men and women. There are several clothing stores in the market nowadays who can offer new clothing products for all the people in this world.

But only the Be Gorgeous Styles by Mimmie can offer the best examples of such products to the consumers at affordable prices because everybody should be inspired as a woman, man, kid and teenager, we are all encouraged to look and feel beautiful about ourselves.

One of the things you’ve done at ZBIL is diversified the products, delving into children’s and men’s wear. Why was it important for you to branch out with the company?
Ha ha... ZBIL is totally different, Be Gorgeous Styles is a Fashion Company and ZBIL is a charity Organization, and as for expanding the company it feels good to have to increase the customer revenue and also to give children and Men the chances to experience the beautiful gorgeous clothing by Mimmie. And plus the chance to have extra financial gain couldn’t hurt much. Lol

What do you think are some of the biggest conceptions people have about the fashion industry?
To be honest with you, I haven’t really given it that much thought, I believe people will have their opinions about anything no matter what, and as long as you know you are doing what you love and are very motivated, always do the best you can, people will always be people with their views and opinions.

What are your goals for the next ten years?
Like I said earlier, I my ultimate goal is to make sure that my charity is very successful because eventually I would like to start a school and name it after my grandparents who both passed away about 10 years ago, and to help all the orphan children who needs all the help. As well as helping children I feel it’s important to assist those elderly people who do not have anybody to help with them every day necessities and other assistance they may need mentally and socially.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

 I would like to thank God for giving such a wonderful family and my partner whose is always there to support me when I need support and most importantly I would like to thank you my father for always being such a wonderful man and my inspiration for wanting to work very hard and never give up on my dream.

Outside of my career, I enjoys poetry (reading and writing), Science & Geo, sports, shopping (!) and traveling. I also continue to study the latest psychological and criminological principles & practices, with the goal of ultimately helping to improve our society through the development of new theories and findings.

I also continue to be inspired by my father—who was also a self-starter and a successful businessman throughout his career, ultimately serving as Director & Chairman of Cavendish University and a CEO of KSM Investment Group Company.
