I’m not fashion savvy but I like looking at people wearing nice clothes so Zambia Fashion week was an event I definitely wanted to attend. There were so many outfits that were modeled and so many designers that exhibited. The Fashion Week was held from Thursday – Saturday (15th – 17th October). There were so many beautiful outfits that I liked and I want to share some of these. Oh and please note that I have no idea about fashion terminology or rules so all the outfits I liked, I liked because I liked them. Gerrit?
The first on the list is this red beauty made by Charity Musowa. I remember her saying the material used in her outfits was handmade and I could see that in the texture.
Next up is this cute little dress by Chizo (Chisoma Lombe). It’s really cute and I like the print. I especially like the huge hat. Oh and can you see the little purse thingy in her hand? Cute.
Maybe I’m a historic romantic or I’ve just watched too many epic movies but I loved this next outfit. The designer’s name is Yvonne Katongo and I think she did a good job on this one.
This dress by Chizo was so beautiful. It looked so soft and quite simple. I love black so anything in black goes. I would definitely wear this dress. Obviously not in the summer though.
This one was also made by Chizo. I like the upturned high collar. It looks so regal.
The next outfit I liked was this little piece of work by Yves Designs. What’s there to like? The little reed cups over the boobs. The skirt covered in dry leaves. The little reed umbrella.
This outfit was by Charity Musowa. The material is handmade like the first red one. Among my favorite this is my favoritest (yeah, I just made up that word). I like the hat and the color. This dress like the red one is bio-degradable. I don’t know about you but I think there’s something sexy about wearing something that I know will rot in the next few months or years. Maybe that’s why Lady Gaga wore that meat outfit.
Lastly, the next outfit is what happens when someone has zero cares left to give. I liked this outfit immediately I saw it. I know she’s been wrapped in a see through material but on a runway it made sense to me. I think the designer (Mu + Shannon) was like “What? People’s opinions? I’ve run out of cares to give!” and continued cutting up her material or whatever designers do. I can’t show you the back view of the dress though. Because I’m petty and I’m upset about the fact that this model’s bum does not have cellulite (How unfair is that?!!?).
So that’s the roundup of my favorite outfits during the Zambia fashion Week 2015. Which ones did you like?
