Rich Factory founder Rina Chunga joins us once again. The Zambian born designer was raised in Botswana but is currently based here in South Africa. This has all contributed to her sense of fashion and ultimately the designs for Rich Factory Clothing.
Rich Factory has styled many big name celebrities such as Nomzamo Mbatha, Nomuzi mabena and Terry Pheto, among countless others. This has resulted in Rina being profiled in many magazines and interviewed on a number of television shows. She was also featured Destiny magazine’s Africa for their “beautiful and powerful at any age” column.
Rina started has had a passion for fashion since a young age, but she only officially started designing when she was in matric, back in 2007. She has now recently established her own Rich Factory store, in Parkhurst, Johannesburg. She transformed the space by painting, and decorating it herself. She will also be opening up a few pop up stores in Paris and London, due to keen interest tourists seem to have in her designs.
Rina is not only doing well in her professional life, but also her personal life, as she will be wedding her Venda fiancé whom she has been with for 9 years. She will also be designing her own wedding gown.
