“We want it to be a successful party, we want to have marquees at festivals and award shows, we want people to look forward to attending The Fashion Soireè.” - Reinhard Mahalie

Hosted by three of Namibia's fashion darlings; Reinhard Mahalie, Jay Aeron and Rumano Fabrishh, The Fashion Soireè is the first of its kind in Namibia.

More than just a party, this event is a platform where Namibian celebrities and the fashion-loving public party in style while interacting and networking during the biggest fashion event of the year. This fashion party takes place during Windhoek Fashion Week and has received a stamp of approval by Windhoek Fashion Week organisers as the first and only independent after-party for their attendees.

Fashion parties are notorious around the world for having trend-setting celebrities mingle in style after some of the biggest fashion events. Who can forget the mega press garnered after Rihanna's 2018 Met Gala after party? If you're into fashion and love a fashion event, an after party is the perfect way to end the night in style! While the Namibian fashion scene is still growing and evolving, an event like The Fashion Soireè is one of the best ways of adding flair and excitement to the country's premiere fashion week. “We want it to be a successful party, we want to have marquees at festivals and award shows, we want people to look forward to attending The Fashion Soireè,” says Reinhard Mahalie, one of the talents behind the event.

In terms of the feedback received after the inaugural event, he says; “People really loved it, hence the reason we decided to bring it back this year.” The 2018 edition of the event was highly praised by fashion insiders who attended. Fashion designer, blogger and stylist Leah Misika was so impressed that she wrote on her blog; “I can only see this event becoming a staple for Namibian fashion weeks to come. A fashion party hosted by the most. It's kind of perfect.” In more press, Monochrome Magazine named the event one of their best highlights for Windhoek Fashion Week 2018.



The faces behind soireè

Reinhard Mahalie is a continental award-winning fashion stylist who was also recently awarded as Favourite Stylist at the Simply You Magazine Lifestyle and Fashion Awards. He is a style star who also doubles as an events MC and social media influencer of note.

Jay-Aeron is the brains behind some of the most iconic looks of some of Namibia's top celebrities, having styled rapper Lioness's video for Dreams. An award-winning make-up artist who is highly sought-after, Jay-Aeron is also a model and style star. Namibia's very own diamond Rumano Fabrishh is the quintessential fashion star, model and stylist whose take on fashion is both groundbreaking and bold but with an elegant touch. All three have become sought-after style stars and by now, most fashion loving Namibians will agree that no red carpet event is complete without them. They are also becoming hot favorites on South African red carpets and have been featured in various media platforms and exhibitions. On top of it all, they have disrupted the fashion scene with their androgynous style and push for representation of gender non-binary identities in the Namibian fashion and entertainment sectors.

This time around, guests can expect a special appearance by a renowned fashion star.
