The 6th edition of Mzuzu Fashion Week (MzFW), dubbed the REBIRTH has taken a different approach this year with all but one event, to be held digitally in observance of COVID-19 pandemic prevention measures.
The edition will be held from October 26 to 30, 2020 and one of a series of activities, fashion cocktail, will be held at Malvile Boutique Hotel in Lilongwe.
MzFW co-founder, Zikani Nyirenda, said this yearâs MzFW, dubbed the REBIRTH, will take a different approach whereby all but one event will be held digitally apart from Fashion cocktail.
âThe 2020 MzFW edition will have a couple of pre and post event talks virtually, to discuss challenges which the Malawi Fashion [industry] is facing amidst COVID- 19 pandemic and propose better ways of handling the challenges to put the Malawi Fashion Industry on the map,â said Nyirenda.
He said there will be a series of virtual talks through various digital platforms amongst leaders and influencers in the fashion industry.
âWe will, through this yearâs fashion week, reach out to a cross section of people. The fashion cocktail will take place in Lilongwe away from Mzuzu where we have been holding the event in the past years,â he said.
On her part, Beatrice Mabvuto, who is one of the designers expected to showcase her art during the event, said she is excited with how the fashion week has been organised considering the challenges which are being faced by the fashion industry in the country due to COVID-19.
âI am excited with the event as it will be my second time to showcase my designs and this time, I will showcase a mini capsule collection with six-style looks mixed with menâs wear,â said Mabvuto.
