This year’s Masa Square Hotel Fashion Show promises to be a star-studded event, due to the impressive list of sponsors it has drawn. Botswana’s premier business hotel has revealed its 2018 partners which are nothing short of impressive.
These include Mokolodi Nature Reserve and Limkokwing University of Creative Technology. Other sponsors include Timba Trading, 3G Mobile, Ngwao Brand Architects, Audiotech, PT Photography and Jan Malan of Umzingeli.
Masa Square Hotel Sales and Marketing Head, Neo Nkele, said: “We are extremely excited about our partnerships with Botswana-based companies. This is a lesson to all on how coming together can help grow Botswana’s Fashion and Textile industry to greater heights. The platform we have created will certainly allow the mentees to put their best foot forward while gaining access to what they can expect upon graduating and entering the workforce. They are fortunate enough to engage with big brands which in turn will help them hone their entrepreneurial skills”.
Under the theme, Fashion in the Digital Age, seven (7) budding fashion designers will be mentored by seven (7) professional designers from the local industry. Over the months, the mentees will be tasked with designing an exclusive collection for the Show. The purpose is to provide inspiration and key business tips from a variety of speakers who are directly and indirectly stakeholders of the creative industry.
“We hope that the partnerships we have formulated will inspire more corporates to invest in the development and further cultivation of our youth’s talents and skills. We look forward to a continued, fruitful union as the Masa Fashion Show and Mentorship Challenge continues to grow in greater strides,” said Nkele.
