traveling to the states for the Miss Universe pageant wearing Schwari.
My 'job' at Schwari has been uber interesting lately!! Generally I do odd jobs like making candles, painting murals, and making playgrounds. A lot of creative or organizational behind the scenes stuff.
In September we had a fashion show in Dar Es Salam and Schwari did SO well!! Uproarious standing ovation and clips have been shown on the Social Life section of the news for weeks afterwards. Tanzanians are so proud that all her designs are entirely made in Tanzania and it has been amazing to see the staff shine with pride!
She was then asked to dress the entire Miss Tanzania Pageant with a week's notice. And somehow we did it!! And now she was asked to dress Miss Tanzania on her trip to the states for the Miss Universe Pageant. A few designers were asked so she won't wear Schwari every day but here she is arriving in America.
Awesome Schwari is getting international attention and publicity!! Very exciting time at work!!
Sad that I won't be around next year to see what the future holds. I wish we had a decent website to send you to for more shots of the amazing clothes and jewelry at the fashion show... if we ever get it up and running I will let you know. For now here is the site that will follow Winfrida through her trip in the states... it is a total fashion and gossip blog... http://missiepopular.blogspot.com/2012/11/mp-beauties-of-day.html... we will be watching to see what she wears every day for sure!!
