It’s a busy week for aspiring models and fashionistas, as the fourth edition of Kigali Fashion Week (KFW) kicks off with the second round of auditions at tomorrow.
After the Kigali auditions, the KFW team will head to Rubavu District for another round of auditions.
John Bunyeshuri, the CEO of Kigali Fashion Week, (KFW), said, “This year’s event is going to be bigger and better. We are carrying out auditions early enough to allow the participants to get well prepared. We’re bringing fashion professionals from Belgium to train them with the models for the main show in July.”
Kigali Fashion Week is partnering with Rwanda Cultural Fashion Show (RCFS) to bring together contemporary and cultural designers.
Celestin Ntawirema, the CEO of RCFS, said, “We have new faces and we’re planning to hold a forum for designers so that they bring out the contemporary and cultural taste of fashion.”
He added that experienced fashion designers from Africa and Europe will come to train the local models and fashion designers.
The theme for this year’s edition is “The power of love”. It will include the Fashion Festival, Cocktail Fashion Show and the Kigali Fashion Week come July and the finale will be held at Kigali Serena Hotel in November.
The organisers said that this year’s fashion week will also feature regional and international models.
