I cannot say how saddened I was to miss this event, I'm going to blame this one on flight delays, being upcountry sucks sometimes dah ( I think nilipania haha) When someone says designer in Tanzania, the first name that comes up is Mustafa Hassanali. Totally a pioneer in the field, I think we all need to celebrate him for his 15 years in fashion more than he needs to celebrate his 15 years in fashion, lol!!! He showcased in more than 27 cities worldwide 18 countries representing Tanzania. He's been a mentor for young fashion designers in Tanzania making a platform for them to showcase their work....Tanzania's fashion industry owes him a celebration, and so do we bloggers... coz not only does he support other designers make a platform for them to be noticed he also carries out charitable events "Breast Cancer Awareness"&"Violence against Women"which he hosts every year to generate funds for this noble cause in the country. In Zanzibar, he supports theZanzibar Mental Hospitalsince 2008. He also established a "Fashion 4 Health".Oh by the way...did you know he is also a doctor?!
Mustafa Hassanali, the mastermind of the annual Swahili Fashion Week and Harusi Trade Fair is one of a kind. I wish him more success more fabulosity.
