Hello everyone! It is the start of a new week and regardless of what you have been doing this past weekend, I wish this week brings you a lot of joy and positive energy.

This past weekend we had a one day event of Swahili fashion week pop up shop which took place at the Italian embassy residency at Oyster bay. The event as our previous post showed here gathered different talented designer from our mother land and ooh it was so exciting to see how much our fashion industry is growing.

So many good designers were there to showcase their beautiful work and it was such a lovely experience to be in seeing all the beautiful works of our designers made in Tanzania only!

Here is a peep of what went down at the exhibition day.............

As you can see, it was a great event and successful because a lot of people showed up and we got to support designs, art and decor that is made in Tanzania, another good step towards the growth of our fashion and design industry. This is also a good chance to urge all other upcoming designers and artists to not stop rather continue with their journey so as to bring more variety and authentic pieces to the industry.


XoXo,
Christine.

As we count down the remaining 3 Days until the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle, let's take a look back to Prince William's wedding to Katherine Middleton.
 We await to talk about the Bride's dress,who designed it and for how much..... Unfortunately the Father of the Bride MAY NOT walk her down the isle, and we wonder who will take his place?
 Who will be the Maid of honor? What will she wear?
 We will dissect everything and everybody...until we are satisfied :))
 Starting with the invited guests....Their fashion and styles, the iconic hats, accessories and much more
 Wjat will  Her Majesty The Queen,wear? And Camilla? Will she be there too?

 I assure you,May 19th will be fun!


I plan to watch the whole ceremony until the famous awaited balcony appearance...or maybe longer than that :) The Ceremony will start at 14:00/ 2p.m Tanzanian time,on Saturday :)

Will you be watching too? Besides the obvious (Bride's dress), What are you really anxious to see?
