An exclusive store for top designer brands in handbags, shoes, sunglasses, cosmetics and other fashion accessories has opened in Gaborone. The store, owned by businesswoman Ineeleng Kavindama, will also be the office for Vintage Classics Car Hire brand for weddings, prom, airport shuttle and other red carpet events. Asked about her comeback to the fashion industry after almost 20 years hiatus she said:“Fashion is addictive and a calling. When you are born an artist, you will always come back to it in another form, one way or the other, hence I am now here to serve the fashion industry in another way through my lifestyle store.”
“We are offering our clients the ultimate royal treatment starting this month end as it is the wedding season; if you spend more than P3000 you get a free voucher for either manicure, pedicure, makeup session, weave fitting while gentlemen will be treated to a haircut and shave at one of the local upmarket beauty spa’s and hair salons,” said Kavindama, adding that the store will take special orders from clients for various fashion items not available in the store, in line with promoting exclusivity.
‘The Fashion Queen’ as Kavindama is known, is the first Motswana fashion designer to showcase at South Africa fashion week and Mnet face of Africa. She is one of the pioneers of Ndebele fashion which is currently trending more than 20 years later after she first showcased her Ndebele collection in 1994.
