Covid-19 pandemic has forced a cancellation of many events in the country with a few still going ahead
including Mzuzu Fashion Week which comes out for its sixth edition.
The event starts next week Monday through to October 31.
Co-founder Zikani Nyirenda said Tuesday they were almost set for the fashion week.
“Monday through to Thursday there will be content on all our digital platforms and on Friday (October 30), we are going to have the cocktail and a fashion show at Malville Boutique Hotel in Lilongwe where we have two international designers gracing the event,” Nyirenda said.
He said the international designers gracing the event are Nandi Larethi and Ishmael Tsakatsa of Zargue’sia from Harare, Zimbabwe.
The local designers participating include Alinafe Misomali of Alinafe, Khama Chinseu of Kliff Culture, Roy View Banda of RDV, Mphatso Gwaza of MG Apparel, Chris Ngalu of Kris Base, Agnes Maliyana of M.A.D, Q.Consol of Wala Brand and Beatrice Mabvuto of Scorpi Clothing.
“We will also be graced by an international runway model and beauty queen Miss Zimbabwe International Tania Aaron and Malawi’s Miss University Africa, Miss Christian Africa Malawi representative Becky Thindwa and Miss Pan African Malawi Monalisa Kafuwa,” Nyirenda said.
“People are encouraged to follow our social media pages and enjoy all updates and activities that Malawi Fashion Week has to offer,” Nyirenda said.
Unlike in the past editions when the fashion week has taken place in Mzuzu with pomp, this year due to the pandemic, the fashion week has gone digital.
Established by Kwanza PR and Nyirenda, Mzuzu Fashion Week is one of the key fashion annual events that takes place in the country and has given a platform to fashion designers, models and other fashion industry professionals nationally and internationally to showcase their work and encourage the growth of the fashion industry.
The event this year is running under the theme ‘Rebirth’.
