"Culture is the heritage of us all. some may be more interested than others in the treasures of the past, but no one can fail to take a pride in his country's participation in the story of mankind, as represented in carvings, sculpture, music, paintings and the other arts. And there is a personal commitment to this, for no man can really say he is alone: we are all joined through our identity, with the cultures which are part of the mainstream of life"
- Simon Kapwepwe, Zambian Independence Freedom Fighter

"Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm" - Winston Churchill

"Try to be the rainbow in someone else's cloud" - Maya Angelou

"Your time is limited so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinion drown out your inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition" - Steve Jobs

Zambia Fashion Week Grande Finale Tomorrow!

So I will be live tweeting from Zambia Fashion Week's Grand Finale thanks to Jewel of Africa, who have a booth and will showcase some serious glittery eye-candy with their beautiful world class jewelry on the catwalk and have pieces on sale all 3 days.  iPad hook-up from Lusaka Voice too :).  Please find information above about the event, organised by Karen Nakawala of Afro Multi-Media Productions.

So I bought 3 pairs of shoes to choose from to complete look for tomorrow, now broke! Was only meant to get a pair and got drunk with the selection of shoes in my size as usually don't find sizes smaller than UK 6-7 in abundance.  Was once told by a sales assistant that maybe I should shop in the kiddies section! Ummm, rocking pink polka dotted Hello Kitty shoes? Think I'll leave my niece to rock those...

Here are some of the Zambian designers who have been mainstays at ZFW.  Designers from Zimbabwe and  Malawi will also be showcasing.  For more information on all the designers go to Zambia Fashion Week on Facebook and Twitter and check out hashtag #ZedFW2013.
