In an attempt to liven things up, Colourful People, the brand behind the African Attire on Fleek has decided to rename this year's Gabs edition as 'The Ultimate African Attire on Fleek' and set it to its original venue, Bojanala Waterfront, on March 9.

The changes coincide with the event's fifth year anniversary celebrations. One of the event’s coordinators, David Letshwiti told Showtime that they believe this year’s edition will be one of the historic events they have ever hosted. He promised ‘Fleekers’ the best experience of all time adding that the cherry on top is that this year’s event will be hosted at Bojanala Waterfront where they started the African Attire on Fleek concept. “Even though we changed venues for the previous editions, we decided to take this anniversary to its original home and it will give our revellers a great ambience.

As the event kept growing, we introduced the Golden Circle, which its focus is to bring different themes of our different cultural wear we find in Botswana and other parts of Africa. This year’s theme will be Sebirwa, Sepedi or Seswati for the golden circle,” he said. Letshwiti further explained that the reason behind this year's theme is to appreciate other cultural attires. He also said this will also give the youth the moment to appreciate traditional wear as something that one could pride themselves with. African attire has been sweeping the fashion business in recent years since the start of cultural events like this one because of the exquisite fusion of traditional and contemporary styles, which made the entire concept endearing. There are many varied styles of dress and the type of cloth plays an integral role in fashioning the garment.
