Katutura Fashion Week, one for the books

Katutura Fashion Week brings designers from across SADC and showcases diversity and inclusion. The past weekend Namibians where of witnessed to the first-ever Katutura Fashion Week.

A platform that brought together international and local designers as well as embracing the diversity of the Namibian people. Although the event and it’s organisers were able to pull off a diverse and a one of a kind event, certain blunders were noticeable. Both runways show started late, KFW interns were not recognised for their input and the majority of the nominees were not present at the award ceremony.

Apart from the blunders, it took three years of sweat and planning for Dennis Hendricks and his team. From exhibition stalls, the runway show to the award ceremony. One can continue to stan and give Dennis Hendricks and his team a round of applause for their hard work in executing the flavourful and fashion-filled weekend.

During the KFW we saw 40 designers showcasing their stunning designs from Namibia and from across Africa as far as Zambia and Benin. Namibian designers and household names Anna Shiwedha, Pinehas Megameno, Shimuketa Leone showcased and not forgetting Helen Hangula who made a bold statement against GBV and Xenophobia with her collections.

Another noteworthy aspect of the fashion show is that it also created a beautiful and breathtaking platform for young beautiful, vibrant and incapacitated models to showcase their talents on the runway. Katutura Fashion Week will be back again next year bigger and better!
