IT’S almost that time of the year again when all roads lead to the MTC Windhoek Fashion Week, which fashionistas from all walks of life have been eagerly awaiting.
The revamped event aims to change the game when it takes place from 1 to 6 December, promising big improvements which come with the new brand endorsement.
With MTC sponsoring the event, now in its fifth year, to the tune of N$3,6 million, it creates the opportunity for a bigger and better show.
Despite co-founder of the event Luis Munana not divulging too much at the moment, he gave an assurance that nothing will ever be the same again after this year’s show.
“We are going to make a few changes that will be for the betterment and growth of the local industry and it will make designers’ lives easier. The idea is to eventually have high sales of Namibian garments.”
Previous editions of the fashion show have resulted in the tremendous growth of the brand, with many designers and models making a name for themselves, as well as attracting creatives from all over Africa.
On how MTC Windhoek Fashion Week will adapt to social distancing, Munana said they are preparing for as many eventualities as possible, stating that we are living in uncertain times and that the team can only be hopeful.
“We are hoping by December the lockdown restrictions will have been eased, but if the government decides only a limited number of people can attend an event, we will adhere to that. We also have plans for a virtual show or perhaps breaking it all down into multiple smaller shows.”

Ghana’s leading fashion event Accra Fashion Week is scheduled for 7-11 December 2022 following their 5th-year celebration last year in 2021. Accra Fashion Week is a platform for African designers that can be compared to fashion weeks across the major capitals. It aims to fill the void which sees tremendous creativity and culture across the continent with the absence of an operating fashion infrastructure.
The epic event took place at Ghana Dubai in Accra, and saw models march down the steps from the Kwame Nkrumah Monument whilst being followed by a spotlight, before circulating the central fountains. Memories of the exciting night still give chills as guests revisit the experience on youtube.
However, rest assured that 2022 is going to be even more exciting with greater performances and an upgraded designer collection. FashionGHANA.com is sure to bring you the exclusives we did on www.FashionGHANA.com/TV. All last year’s shows are available to watch on youtube.
