We are using international standards to select models,” FFW CEO, Kesaobaka Kemolatlhe said. He said judges are scouting for catwalk and editorial models for

magazine photoshoots. Only 10 models will be selected from the Gaborone auditions. The FFW team will also host auditions in Francistown, Gantsi, Kanye, Lobatse and Maun.

Kemolatlhe said that FFW has partnered with a number of fashion designers who will be showcasing their clothes during the fashion show.  “We also have tertiary schools such as University of Botswana, Limkokwing University of Creative Technology and Botho University that have fashion related courses,” he said.

He said he hopes the fashion industry will be taken more seriously in the country as it plays a role in the development of the economy. The fashion week is packaged in a way that it will have modelling and fashion design-related workshops including fashion shows.
