As I watched the sexy gentlemen behind Armored Aesthetics’ brand from a distance make their way for their interview with me, my attention was caught by their toned, ribbed and chiseled bodies. And in my head, I wondered what they would look like shirtless and how many women have similar thoughts the moment they lay their eyes on them. Everything was in slow motion as I drifted in dreamland. From the way they were walking and looking for The Tenacity Post offices, I imbibed every little detail about them before forcing myself out of my dreamland and came back to reality when I introduced myself.
Besides their dark chocolate skin and deep voices, these chiseled gods bring sexy, stylish and trendy back to the gym with Armoured Aesthetics sportswear to the fashion industry. The name of the brand itself betells what inspired it, the beauty of the body’s sculpture protected. Marvelous Ganda and Bruce Muzondo are the charming and magnetic pair behind the brand.
“Our brand debuted last year 2017 in November. We started with t-shirts, vests, gym bags, caps, online training sessions and wristbands. Armoured Aesthetics is a brand that caters for both sexes and for sportwear junkies. Hoodies, tights and sweat pants will be hitting the market end of this month,” Ganda said.
“We were inspired by other sportwear brands and the fact that our fashion industry does not have much sportwear brands. Our body building backgrounds made it easy for us to pick and choose the right designs that are comfortable and trendy. Our clients are both local and international and most of the support comes from those who love local brands,” Ganda continued.
Muzondo spoke on how the sportwear industry is not flooded and how it is contributing to their steady growth saying, “We do have competition with other local brands but mostly international ones like Nike, Adidas, Fila etc. In the near future we are looking forward to growing and becoming the biggest and the best sportwear brand from Africa that will not only produce gym apparels but also have gyms and body building products.”
Ganda who was Mr Bulawayo second runner-up 2017 and Mr Novis Zimbabwe third runner-up 2017 is working towards scooping the first place this time around and be flying the Armoured Aesthetics high in the process.
