Luis Munana, founder of WFW said they are looking for talent and professionalism. “Designers must really impress. This is an international platform. We don’t want untidy work threads hanging, or outfits not well-fitted on the models.”, Munana said in an interview.
“This year we will have more fashion designers showcasing their work. We are also pleased to announce that for the second year, the people working behind the scenes are Namibians. For the first two years, we had industry experts from South Africa. Our team has learnt from them and can now successfully do the work by themselves.” She added.
All the selected designers will be revealed to the public next month. Munana says WFW will be welcoming interns this year. “The aim is to improve the skills of youngsters in the industry.”
