Lights, cameras and beautiful male and female slim models rocked the runway on Saturday night when the Distinguished Gentlemen fashion event returned.
The handful fans who patronised the event at Lilongwe Golf Club experienced a fashion show that added to the many that the fledgling industry has witnessed in the recent past.
The proceeds from the event will go towards buying dignity kits for school girls.
The second edition of the event organised by Fashion Malawi Edition (Fame) turned into a night of elegance, fashion, whiskey and cigars, as cutting edge fashion that celebrates the body and inspires sensations of desire, allure and obsession.
With designs from great Malawian fashion houses such as Mweneyamasi Shoes, Mkanda Accessories, Tavari, Home Grown, Alinafe and Log Fashion House, the creations were so irresistible and got guest of honour, Minister of Lands, Housing and Urban Development Atupele Muluzi clapping hands as models strutted their stuff.
Fame project manager Samantha Nampuntha said they target to assist 300 secondary school girls with proceeds from the event.
She said the girls would be identified by the Forum for African Women Educationalists (Fawema).
Other activities at the event included whiskey sampling, cigar bar and an auction that saw local urban artist Theo Thomson performing at a fee of K100 000.
Fame is an entity that seeks to give designers a platform to showcase their talents.
The first ever Distinguished Gentleman event was held at Crossroads Hotel in October last year and raised K376 000. n
