Budding fashion designer Chiccu Gondwe of Chiccu Clothings is set to be the only Malawian to showcase her talent in Paris, France, from September 6 to 9.
Gondwe is one of the selected designers to what is dubbed one of the must-attend events of the year for anybody working or interested in sustainable eco-friendly Ethical Fashion.
Gondwe said the show is an event that every designer has to dream of attending.
â€œIt is the perfect occasion to discover new brands, for industry professionals to meet and exchange ideas, and to give public access to a dedicated fashion event. The first few days focus on an industry only trade show, with a final day open to the public, allowing consumers to attend runway shows and to encourage an alternative shopping experience,â€ she said.
Gondwe said the show will open its doors on Thursday, 6th September at 5pm for a press, partners and VIP evening at the Carrourel du Louvre. The venue is a mecca for Parisian fashion where designersâ€™ shows and catwalks take place.
â€œThe exhibition reflects the spirit of the times, presenting contemporary and imaginative fashion for buyers on the lookout for labels that promote an ethical stance and sustainable development, without forfeiting style,â€ she explained.
Since its creation in 2004, Ethical Fashion Show strives to publicise the fashion, which includes economic, human and environmental aspects.
