Zambia Fashion Week; What I wore

This post is so late,i know! But, better late than never as the saying goes.

Zambia fashion week took place from 17th to 19th October this year.
Saturday 19th was the grand finale, I opted for a different,simple yet chic look as i figured everybody would be in chitenge fabric outfits.

I threw together a crocheted vest,put black peplum vest and skirt underneath it. I held it all in place with a skinny animal print belt and accessorised with some gold accessories and animal print heels.The crotcheted vest being the highlight of my outfit, i absolutely love it and how it added personality to a simple black look.
Vest from Style_Struck at K180; Bangle set at K60; earrings at K40; Neckpiece at K120 and heels at K 300 all from Style_Struck!

A MissKombe Original: Emipire Silhoutte

An Empire Line dress is one that has a waistline that is raised above the waist and falls just below the bust.
This particular dress i LOVE as it is an original designed and constructed by myself. The bodice was cut and  fitted to show off my petite bust :) and ends just below the bust to give a high-waist appearance.
The loose skirt lengthens the body and gives the illusion of  a taller me.
I love making dresses,the chitenge (tribal print) fabric choice was inspired by my lovely mother!
