"This year was bigger and better. I am mostly excited by the fact that the show has attracted people across the region & it is not only just about celebrating Zimbabwean fashion, but it is about developing African fashion and interlinking relations. 2 young designers have been selected to go into Edgars for training, while we will also be sending 3 more designers to showcase in South Africa this October, through our partnership with SA's Azzura. Plans for the next year event are already in place, and the team is young and energetic."  - Gilmore Tee, Producer of Intwasa Fashion Show.
