Tonight, Lusaka city will experience a buzz of glitz and glam as the Zambian Fashion Week kicks off at 18:00 hours at the prestigious New Government Complex. The Zambian Fashion Week is one of the biggest fashion events in the Zambian fashion calendar and aims to showcase some of the best Zambian fashion designers.
The Zambian Fashion Week is organised by Afro Multi Media Productions, the company that took it over from Gillian Baker and has been running the show for the past two years. The Fashion Week is an annual event that has been running since 2005. This year’s show is guaranteed to bring out each designer’s creative prowess as the show deliberately has no specific theme, allowing designers to get as creative as they wish.
