The Amaka Arts Festival Fashion Show

 A week ago a new friend of mine, Mukuka of c1rca1964, told me about this amazing festival called "Amaka Arts Festival" that was taking place in Lusaka. The Amaka Arts Festival is the first Zambian international multidisciplinary arts festival and was created to add value to the Zambian arts market. The festival is a week long and showcases five main disciplines which include film, visual arts, dance, fashion and literary arts.

Needless to say, I was almost falling over myself when I heard about the fashion show and Mukuka helped me connect with the organisers of the festival and I managed to attend it. The fashion show was held on the rooftop of The Foxdale Court Shopping complex which was perfect because it's summer at the moment and super hot so the cool air and stunning night scenery added that extra pizzazz!

I wore a black lace dress that I got a few weeks ago. I am so in love with lace and sheers at the moment and I loved how simple and elegant it came out. I also wore a stunning new pair of heels I got in a sale at Foshini!

 I was so psyched to see one of the first Zambian bloggers I ever stumbled upon, Sekayi from the blog Mafashio, at the festival. She was one of the models and looked like a frigging supper model! I was grinning at her the whole time and most of my pictures were biased towards her I had to leave early and didn't get to meet her but I'm sure it's only a matter of time.
