She also urged the corporate world as well as individuals to get involved and be part of the show to appreciate talent consisting of fashion and designing both from Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
“About 15 Malawian designers and 4 international designers are teaming up to raise the awareness and create a platform for corporates to find their targeted audience in one place and market their brands,”said Kamanga.
