2011 Africa Fashion Week in South Africa: Zimbabwe’s Maita Marimo Fashion Showing!



Filed under : Africa, Entertainment, Fashion

Africa Fashion Week has come & gone….

My friend, Chipo’s younger sister, Maita Marimo showed her fashion line earlier today at the 2011 Africa Fashion Week held at the Sandton Convention Center in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Maita presented her “ready-to-wear” collection, Maita Marimo, which inspired by ancient Egypt but with a futuristic look.

“I’m mixing the old with a look of the future. The range will include summer and winter outfits. It’s a collection that a woman can wear all year round.”

Africa Fashion International released its nominees list for the 2011 Africa Fashion Awards which took place earlier today.
