On December 1-10, Mozambique Fashion Week took place at Maputo, hosting over 50 designers, including young designers to showcase their latest collections. For the past 13 years, Mozambique Fashion Week has been that cultural and artistic event in the fashion industry, seeking new talent and expanding it globally.
At this year’s event, themed “Feel our colours”, where King Queen, Mahone, Rich Factory and John Kaveke just to name a few were among the showcasing designers, we spotted some dapper menswear that got us intrigued. From formal tuxedos to casual wear, these are the looks that caught our eye.

" It was not a spectacular fashion event, but we did something very important: we planted a seed. It was in that year that we took on the commitment to give shape to something that could spark talents in all areas of the industry, from photography to designers, from dresses to models, from make-up artists to sound and light technicians ... all those components that contribute to such an event".
