I hope you are all doing great,apologies for having gone silent on you. Life got really busy but, the plus side of my absence is I got up to some really interesting stuff that I could not wait to share with you.Zambia Fashion Week is at the top of the list.It was three whole days of awesomeness and I am going to take you through each day by the end of the post you might as well have been on the VIP seats through out the whole thing!This year the show was sponsored by Vodafone-Jump show kicked off on Thursday evening.
Thursday.This was one of my favorite days because I got to take over Zambia Fashion Weeks social media with blogger Jayne of urbanchicmag.com .It was an exciting experience you can follow @theZambiafashionweek on Instagram,Twitter,Facebook&Snap chat for media from all three days recap.Day 1 showcased designers who are new to the fashion scene and lets just say the newbies really did work the runway!
Sadly I was unable to make it for day two but,that did not stop me from following the whole show via social media.All thanks to missroxyboyd.blogspot.com who was taking over social media for the day.Among the designers who showcased where Naomi Phiri ,Martha Kabaso ,Mweene Kalipinde,Karen Nakamba but, to mention a few.
Since I was so bummed about missing day 2,making it for Day 3 was not an option.Major recognition and awards were given to different disciplines such as fashion bloggers,make up artists,photographers,models and upcoming designers on Saturday. South African designer Paledi showcased as this years guest designer with his amazing collection called “love death” his collection lived up to its name it was very dark,chique and mind blowing.
Local designers who showcased that night also among my favorites include Kutowa by Towani,Nada and a bikini line by Alice Musukwa.
The beauty and smoothness brought to the stage by the models was nothing but ,flawless! They strutted their stuff effortlessly.The energy they carried the designs in was seamless. I found their catwalks well choreographed. Each wore the designs to its full potential, it is hard not to want the garments after seeing them look so gorgeous on the models.
