This past weekend, model casting for the Colour in the desert fashion week took place. There were many familiar faces and some new faces too. It was nice to meet up with the models from last year and see how everyone has changed over the year. You can always tell who the new people are by how they dress. For whatever reason people think models wear tight short freekum dresses to castings when in fact we live in tight jeans and vests/wife beaters. Oh well.
I was as nervous during my audition as I was last year. No matter how many times I do it, it’s as nerve wrecking as the first time. But I think things went well. I don’t want to count my chickens before they hatch though because up until the night of the show, you can get cut at any time. There will probably be a second round of auditions at some point though nothing’s been confirmed yet. We wait anxiously. The Colour in the Desert fashion week will take place from 27th August – 2nd September. A definite must for all fashion lovers!
Also taking place in August on the 11th and 12th is Gaborone Fashion weekend. It was the first big runway show I did and is also an annual show like Colour in the Desert Fashion week. So far it is said that Sessile Lopez, Solange and Tyson Beckford are to attend in addition to a laundry list of other celebrities, we shall wait and see…
Miss Botswana 2010 and Miss world 2010 runner up Emma Wareus will be the face of Gaborone Fashion weekend this year replacing Botswana’s Face of Africa winner Kaone Kario. Tickets are going on sale soon and model casting for the show will be on the 29th of July.
Another shoot! Yay!! A few months ago I wrote a post about a shoot I’d done for local fashion magazine “Sizzling” and though I have long had the photos that ended up in the magazine I wasn’t able to publicize them … Continue reading →
Limkokwing University assisted the Botswana High Commission in the United Kingdom in hosting a fashion showcase at the Limkokwing London campus, featuring the five Batswana designers who represented their country in the inaugural ‘International Fashion Showcase’ at London Fashion Week 2012.
The ‘International Fashion Showcase’ is the first ever collaboration between the British Council and the British Fashion Council. It is part of the Fashion 2012 Culture Programme developed to celebrate the year of the Olympics and Paralympics and honours its values of international respect, excellence, equality and friendship.
This video captures the highlights on the two-storey runway at 106 Picadilly, the home of Limkokwing University in London and the interviews with designers, stylists and guests after the show. Pula!
Check out the video below. Lets hope this is the first of many fashion shows. A big congratulations to all the designers from Botswana that went to show their work!
