Mozambique Fashion Week: Open call for aspiring Mozambican fashion designers, models

Every year, Mozambique Fashion Week (MFW) seeks to expand, to leverage national production in the industry and offer its many followers a quality event with a variety of designers and models that add value to the event, to the fashion sector and to Mozambican arts and culture.

MFW acts also as a platform for discovering, encouraging, training and promoting Mozambican fashion. We believe that part of this comes from giving openness and ease to young and small entrepreneurs to walk and take their small steps to conquer their careers and business success.

According to the statement sent to Moz Entretenimento, the MFW team will be receiving applications for its 18th edition, where designers and models can showcase their talent and take their place in the fashion world.

Enrolment for candidates in the areas of fashion, design and catwalk have been taking place on the event’s website since July 18. This is a different system from previous years, when enrolment took place in person. For this year’s edition, the production hopes to continue to attract fashion designers and models with talent and technical capacity to surpass the numbers obtained in past events. Last year alone, the team received more than 1,300 entries for models and 150 applications for designers, of which 60 models and 70 designers were selected for the big event and were able to showcase their talent and creativity.

As always, MFW wants to encourage designers and new talents to think outside the box and present new, unique and competitive ideas that can inspire a totally different experience for the audience or final consumer, showing their full potential for the success of their brands.
