Entering a new frontier
This past weekend’s fashion show, held at the Travel Lodge in Gaborone under the theme ‘Disruptive’, was the brainchild of long-time fashion designer, Vivian Woto.
The 48-year-old veteran designer is the founder of Kushata Fashions and intends to re-enter the fashion industry in a big way.
Curtain-raised by talented young designers, Mpho Chepete and Thabiso Makwate, the event saw models strut the runway in 30 different creations from the three designers.
“I enlisted these two upcoming designers solely for the growth of both their talents and my brand,” explained Woto, who has been a part of the local textile industry for close to 30 years.
The seasoned free hand designer, whose forte is wedding attire specialising in bridal gowns and suits, has imminent plans to release a catalogue showcasing some of her old, new and contemporary designs.
“I want to use this catalogue to propel my career to the next level,” she said.
