The runway is set and the models are dressed for the ever popular Windhoek Fashion Week that starts in the capital on Monday.

This year, 35 international and local designers are showcasing their fashion over three days of runway shows - all with the aim of fostering a culture of supporting local brands and promoting proudly African products.

The Windhoek Fashion Week is also aimed at bringing together different industry-related individuals including fashion designers, brands, models, show producers, photographers, stylists, hair and makeup artists, jewellers and crafters to showcase their latest collections on different runway shows.

The event starts with Fashion Talks hosted by the Fashion Council of Namibia and the Goethe Institute, where Dimeji Alara (Elle Magazine – fashion director) and Josephine Barbe focus on fashion trends and the African markets. Another fashion focused talk is scheduled for 7 November, hosted by Vaultz Connect Magazine and Zeronine and is hosted at Unam Main Campus. Thereafter Simply You Magazine hosts the official welcoming cocktail party for industry professionals and fashion lovers.
