The director of Encore Productions, Nobuhle Nyoni has revealed that they will be holding a fashion showcase. It will be themed, The Street My Runway (TSMR). This showcase will be on the 7th of November, 20 15 at 1+1 Longcheng Plaza from 5-9pm. A perfect place to spend the Saturday evening for those who love Fashion and Design.
You have probably seen the hashtag #TSMR on twitter and other social media platforms, depending on which circles you are in. Well if you had not yet got with the program, it’s about time you hop on. Do not be left in the dark like undeveloped Kodak film, be part of the card that that caries the bigger picture. Young Zibabwean entrepreneurs are creating innovative ideas amidst crisis and it’s up to us to go and support local brands. The TSMR initiative is a start-up you need to be a part of.
“Our fashion show aims to showcase and give a platform to talented young designers of whom most are students and upcoming, therefore we are trying to give them a foundation to gain exposure as it is a bit difficult to break out in the fashion industry in Zimbabwe.” – Ms. Nyoni revealed.
She warned that the title often has people thinking that the show is closed off to street wear which is not the case. The director explained that this show is a walk into a designers closet, it is a walk into their mind and creativity and it is meant to represent a true feel of their brand and not just a trend. Looking at the pictures on the Encore Productions official page, it looks like there will be a lot of designers and a lot of preparation is being done to make the event live up to expectation. Encore productions declined revealing to us who exactly would be there, they simply said, “Fashion will be there.”
“This show is unique in its simplicity. What we wish to have is people’s attention on the clothing and brands. To have people talk about the talents in each person. Let me just say all shall DROWN IN FASHION,” Nobuhle went on to say.
The show will cost $5 entrance fee and you will get to interact with talented local designers. Encore Productions says expect the unexpected.
