Born in Zimbabwe, she initially showed a flair for fashion and design when helping to create new outfits for her dolls helped by her mother, who was a great lover and supporter of the regional Arts and Craft movement at the time.
As a teenager, making her own clothes was a natural progression, and her design flair was confirmed when she raced ahead of other pupils at school when studying craftwork and Fashion and Fabrics.
Deconstructing clothes to establish patterns and understand the various cuts for garments, swiftly confirmed a passion for clothes and fashion, heavily influenced by the culture of the region, combined with the exciting prospect of new global fashion trends.
This drive and motivation led to her taking a number of supplementary roles, helping her to formalise her industry education, and leading to initially securing a professional National Certificate in Clothing Technology. This led to a place at the National School of Art & Design, where she graduated from a National Diploma In Fashion Design and authored her first formal “Portfolio”.
The recognition of this work by the school’s experts was such, it led to her winning one of the highly sort after “Fashion Design Seats” at the school, where she went onto secure an internship at the respected Edgars Group, the regional clothing market leader, who supply quality adult and children’s merchandise across Zimbabwe.
Fully leveraging the relationships built at Edgars, she was offered a permanent role with them, initially as a Fashion Designer, and gaining promotion to Product Coordinator on the back of the commercial success delivered for the brand and its sub-brands.

Velica’s inspiration comes from traveling abroad to a few fashion capitals around the world. The “je ne sais quoi” of Paris, the refinement of an afternoon tea in London, a walk along the Mediterranean in Barcelona, and most recently Dubai has inspired her to take her creativity as far as her imagination will allow. She is inspired most by unconventional colour combinations and rhythmic textiles that tell a story.
The thoughtfulness that goes into combining various textiles that will engage the senses is paramount to the design process. It’s the intricate details of every design that sets a garment apart from the rest.
As a designer, she allows her creativity to be uninhibited with regard to how she envisions the final piece. The world consists of many beautiful textiles, places, and experiences. And through them, she purposes her ideas and dreams into becoming wearable art. Velica and Managing Partner, Charles Dunn recently breathed the brand’s fashion aesthetic into its first unisex fragrance, Forever. Indeed, an extension of the brand’s commitment to luxury and unique style.
