The ‘September Fashion Issue’ set to promote local industry

On September 3, at the Fife Avenue shopping center 12 designers will  showcase their new exclusive collections at The September Fashion Issue show. 

South African designers, Bongane Shabangu of Indwandwe Couture and Nokwakha Qobo of Nokwakh  will present their latest offerings for the Spring Summer 2017 season. They will be accompanied by models Candice Bonolo and Musty; and the team from Afrikan Fashion TV.

The show is being produced by local designers who want to improve the fashion industry in light of the current economic hardship. The local textile industry has all but collapsed, and this show is an effort to resuscitate it. Tapfumanei Munenge, one of the designers organising the event said “We mean business and we are playing our part in rebuilding the industry, one stitch at a time.”

The event director Samambgwa commented “The unexpected is to be expected at the show and we promise to deliver nothing other than a complete fashion show buffet.”

Tickets are available from Athienitis and at the door for $10 (general admission) and $30 for VIP access to front row and the pre-cocktail party.

The panel of local designers includes award-winning Nompumelelo Marilyn Samambgwa of Noe eS, Tapfumanei Munenge, Claudia Byron, Ishmael Tsakatsa of Zargue’sia, Ngoni Motsi of Chenna Nenni, Mehreen Kamal of Reen Zara, Sarudzai Murungu,  Natsai Mujuru of Gems of Dune, Lauryn Chisikwa of House of Lau, Kimberly Masimbe of House of KikiM, Saneliso Mpofu of Sanah Designs, and David Mnaba of The web. – ZimboJam
