Events of the year
From fashion shows to online music shows, Namibian event organisers were once again challenged to think outside the box this year in order to continue having events that could thrive under Covid-19 regulations.
Below are some events that stood out this year - from their turnout, stage designs and overall buzz the spectacles created.
MTC Windhoek Fashion Week
The sixth edition of MTC Windhoek Fashion Week was definitely the biggest fashion show hosted in the country, and fashion enthusiasts flocked to Maerua Mall to celebrate Namibian fashion designers and their creations. The show also featured designers from other African countries. The organisers pulled out all stops to demonstrate the growth of Namibian fashion.
Hunter’s tjil Sessions
Namibian Sun’s tjil and Hunter’s Namibia partnered up for a live music show that gave a platform to 14 performing artists. The show had eight episodes in total and was broadcasted live on Namibian Sun’s Facebook page. Due to regulations, the show was only open to the public twice when regulations permitted.
Katutura Fashion Week
The third annual Katutura Fashion Week took place on 26 and 27 November and featured some of the best upcoming fashion designers from the College of the Arts (Cota). The two-day event was hosted at the Franco-Namibian Cultural Centre, and boasted a good turnout. We cannot wait for next year’s event. The emerging Cota students really got next.
