Chuwa Fashion
(Arusha)

Amedeus Antony Chuwa is the founder & Lead Creative Designer of Chuwa fashion in Arusha, Tanzania. His fashion line is inspired by the community that surrounds him; Afrocentric & vibrant. He started learning how to knit and sew at VETA University in Dar es Salaam for one year.

Then he opened up his own office and took up regular tailoring jobs. He did that for about 10 years until he got a “Finishing Sponsor” from his teacher who is from Germany. The course lasted 2 years of which his German teacher flew to Tanzania to personally coach him and show him how to pass on knowledge to his peers.

It was at that time that he felt confident enough in his skills as a fashion designer and a tailor, he decided to open Chuwa Fashion. Currently, he designs and creates his own items. He designs and creates his work around German protocol; a tailoring method used to increase and maintain the quality and life span of various clothing items. This method is rarely used among Tanzanian tailors and fashion designers. This is one of the key factors that separate Chuwa fashion products from other fashion designers in the industry.

“I see Chuwa Fashion being able to facilitate a mass-producing factory, a tailoring and design class all within the same vicinity. The aim for the class is to enable those that weren’t able to further their studies in creative & fashion design to learn new skills and become more practical in the field of fashion design. I also see Chuwa Fashion opening up retail stores across the globe and introducing the world to Tanzanian culture through fashion.”
