The Style Sessions solely focus and equip ladies with the Business of Fashion and Style with some of Zimbabwe finest and recognised Fashion Enthusiasts and Influencers. The mandate is to embrace the multifaceted Fashion Industry as both a horizon to achieve your dreams and be confident enough to express yourself through Style!
The first Style Sessions were “Celebrating Zimbabwean Women with Style” in accordance with August 2016 Women’s Month. Guest Speakers included Pokello Nare – Kumordzie, Founder and Creative Director of Addicted 2 Shoes and Pokello Pink Bottoms. Lillian Madyara; Fashion Blogger and Personality of Hollywood Lee; and Mbo Mahocs, TV Presenter and Radio Host (whom unfortunately could not attend the festivities). The event was held at Harare’s first creative hub for Creatives and Young Entrepreneurs; Moto Republik on Saturday 20 August 2016 with start time at 11.00am. The day was fun filled and a fashionable occasion that celebrated and honoured Fashion, Style and the Business associated with it.
The 2nd Style Sessions focused on Beauty, Skincare and Wellness with the theme “Love the Skin you are In” held on 10 December 2016, in collaboration with the British Council in Harare. Our focus was trying to educate and inform ourselves of the natural/mineral based beauty brands and products based in Zimbabwe and also going in as far as discussing personal beauty and health issues as women. Our guest panel of speakers was nothing short of amazing. We had Langa Lloyd, Founder of Zimbabwe’s first mineral based make up line Langa Cosmetics talking about African beauty standards as a model and former pageant queen. Who knew she is actually a tomboy at heart and loves a good pair of jeans! Tendai Angela Jambga is a self-taught wellness, fitness and yoga enthusiast that is set to launch the African Beauty Factory (ABF) in October 2017. Guests had the official first snippet of what ABF will entail in 2017 with a close and intimate look into understanding your attitude, the forces within you and the basis of your “true calling”. Nyasha Adler was our final touch for this segment and what a talk she gave! Nyasha took on to live a naturalist lifestyle after her own personal battles with health and finally coming to terms with her whole being.
The Style Sessions will be hosted on a quartely basis, with the upcoming 3rd Edition to be held in August 2017. Details of Venue, Theme and Guest Speakers will be announced in due course. To stay up to date with The Style Sessions, kindly follow on Instagram – @TheStyleSessionsZW.
