Lusaka July 2017

This year we attended Lusaka July at the invitation of PR’s dynamic duo, Chishimba and Monde Nyambe of PR Girl Media. After the event, we promised them an email full of all the mushiest words we could find to describe the beauty that was Lusaka July.

This post will have to do – albeit without all the mush.

This post highlights some of our favourite pieces about the 2017 edition of Lusaka July, as captured by the Kreative Kingdom lens. The theme? ‘African Luxury’.

The event brought together some of Zambia’s (yes, Zambia, we met a lovely couple that had come specifically for the event, all the way from Mufulira) finest – food, drink and people.

The event was graced by South African Actress and TV Host, Boity Thulo, and designers from as far afield as Accra, Ghana and Gaborone, Botswana.

We think it is even safe to say, Lusaka July marked the beginning of Zambia’s fashion season. ūüėČ

Below to see why.
