Press Release From Hunnar Management Agency
Three Zimbabwean designers will be showcasing at this year’s Ekurhuleni Fashion Festival to be held in Germiston, Johannesburg in South Africa. Thembani Mubochwa, Tapfumanei Munenge & The Heralds by Ara Kani will be joining some outstanding designers from across Africa, as from the 23rd to the 25th of October in South Africa.
The 3 brands that showcased at the Intwasa Fashion Show 2014 and 2015, respectively, will be flying the country’s flag high at the end of the month. Ekurhuleni Fashion Festival is a signature yearly event showcasing the most prestigious fashion brands of the home grown. Most of the designers showcasing are South African, the 3 Zimbabwean designers are some of the few invited guests from outside South Africa. Their selection was due to the Hunnar Management Agency & South Africa’s Azzura partnership as from last year to this year’s Intwasa Fashion Show. The idea behind it is to promote designers that would have showcased at the platform and advance their works across the region and globe through platforms such as the Ekurhuleni Fashion Festival.
Tafpumanei Munenge who has showcased at the Zimbabwe Fashion Week and Soweto Fashion Week was a guest designer at last year’s Intwasa Fashion Show. This year his garments were used on the models that were part of the Intwasa Fashion Show campaign and this led to him being spotted by the organisers of Ekurhuleni who sent a representative to attend the event at AMTEC.
Conversely, Thembani Mubochwa who showcased his menswear bespoke collection at the Intwasa Fashion Show will be showcasing an elegant collection at the Ekurhuleni Fashion Festival. The Vodacom Durban July award winning Durban based designer has an outstanding touch to his garments with the Cast of Generations having worn his clothes. Joining him is the young duo, Thobekile Zondo and Gift Tsingano who have been under the mentorship of Nkululeko Ncube, the Head Designer of Ara Kani. They recently debuted their collection from their mentorship programme at the Intwasa Fashion Show & were one of the favourite collections of the night. The Heralds by Ara Kani will be showcasing their Spring/Summer Collection 2016 in South Africa.
