Danny Ndayishimiye, the brains behind the annual event on Kigali chapter, told The New Times that they are putting things together to ensure a successful event for the fashion community who have missed similar events since the pandemic arrived in Rwanda in March last year.
“The event is back because we think it is more important for the industry than stopping it until the pandemic relaxes,” said Ndayishimiye.
A total of 15 designers are expected to participate in this year’s edition of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Kigali, three of whom are Rwandans, three from the United States, a Belgian, an Ecuadorian, two Ghanaians, one from South Africa, and one British designer.
To make the fashion event relevant to the brand, under which it is named, organizers are preparing a red-carpet glamorous moment during which Mercedes Benz-branded vehicles will be unveiled as an occasion to show car series that will be available on the market next year.
