I will begin by saying when I spotted the name “Maddison Lane” I was quite delighted. My mind quickly had a reminiscent of a fashion boulevard and with an “Old Hollywood Glamour mixed with a Modern Rendition”. Fashion icons such as Grace Kelly, Jackie O, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Coco Chanel came to mind as the epitome of Old Hollywood Glamour with a Modern Rendition of Victoria Beckham. And can you believe all this came to mind as I was shopping at Industria during the Summer Launch party! I will admit I love getting lost in fashion and discovering new things; it’s a mini adventure just for myself as I am always on this beautiful quest to find amazing clothing in Harare. I will also admit that I spend a lot of time at Industria because it pinpoints the exact closet I have in mind and one that I am building for myself. You could say I am a little biased but I can assure you there are three stores in Harare that are my go-to for the absolute most in quality and gorgeous fashion; Passport Boutique, Industria Clothing Collective and Mel’s Touch. I value the shopping experience and customer service above everything else; and affordability to a stunning piece. Why I say this is because you truly or rarely find something spectacular or special in Harare anymore; something you can hold dear and tell a story about. Although yes the fashion game is changing and shifting, which is wonderful to watch; I would like the nostalgia of a good ol’ statement piece that I can tell a story about. Maddison Lane tells a story of pure modern elegance; it’s simple, comfortable but breath taking! I love how I am falling in love with dresses and that I made this discovery with Industria. Just to think a year ago I was die – hard in denim and trousers. It could be the sizzling summer weather in Harare or it could be I finally found a perfect fit..? Whatever it maybe, I assure you I am avidly enjoying it.
