Fashion’s Day Out (FDO) is a monthly fair focused mainly on fashion and beauty products as well as a little art and photography. In addition to the shopping opportunity there will be live bands, fashion shows and other fashion based entertainment.
Besides the entertainment factor for designers, it is a platform they can use to network directly with retailers, manufacturers and the general public. Food stalls focusing only on healthy designer food as well as a cocktail bar by Cointreau are other highlights at FDO.
THE phenomenally successful Zimbabwe Fashion Week (ZFW) is spreading its wings to international capitals and will this year launch its London edition, according to the organisation’s founder and director, Priscilla Chigariro-Gessen.
The Zimbabwe-born former model-turned-entrepreneur says rising demand for similar networking events from the Zimbabwean diaspora community across the world had led to the expansion of the project.
The theme for ZFW 2015 is “Fashion Redefined”.
For many years, fashion has looked to predominant culture for inspiration - from subjects such as popular sport, music, architecture, movies and fine art.
In 2015, Zimbabwe Fashion Week redefines fashion by looking to and focusing on forgotten or unknown tribes around the world.
