In its sixth edition, The MTC Windhoek Fashion Week is set for 2 – 6 November 2021 in Windhoek. This is Namibia’s biggest fashion event which attracts designers from all corners of Namibia and also international designers from South Africa, Zambia, Rwanda, and Angola to name a few countries.
The theme for this year is “Made in Namibia” which celebrates everything that is made in Namibia. The fashion industry is growing rapidly with new designers showcasing at MTC Windhoek Fashion Week and also new models being added to the runway lineup. With this rapid growth, the MTC Windhoek Fashion Week created this platform to celebrate and allow Namibian and international designers to showcase their collections and also collaborate. The MTC Windhoek Fashion Week is also in talks with other organization across Africa to give opportunity to Namibian Designers for them to go and showcase in those countries, we will share more information about this in due time.
