This will be the first Emanitees multicultural fashion event in which it will be showcasing their latest body of work, The Queen of Sheba Collection.
The Emani Experience fashion show is on July 23rd, 2016 in Dallas, Texas. African women entrepreneurs are coming to the fulcrum of business, and doing it with passion. Makamba Online discovered this last year in an interview with Simbi K. Emani, a Zimbabwean-born distinguished fashion designer who is based in the United States of America (USA). We again had time to talk to Simbi K. the founder of Emanitees as she reflects on her fashion show.
She said: “Emanitees has been a part of several events and fashion shows across the US over the years, however, this one is special because it is the first one that I am organizing and hosting on my own. The show will feature live performances from both local and out of state designers and artists.”
One of the artists taking the stage is 90 One, an up and coming rapper from Central Texas who delivers a unique sound fuelled by positive energy, good vibes, jazz samples and hardcore 808’s. Batsi Thembani from Dallas, Texas and Stayce Dylan from Atlanta, Georgia will also be performing. Complex Music will be the Master of Ceremonies for the evening, with DJ Rell in the mix.

This show will be featuring 3 designers from different states in the US. Emanitees will be showing some of their perennial designs, as well as and showcase their latest body of work, ‘The Queen of Sheba Collection’.

Proceeds from the show will be given to “Women Taking Action (Zimbabwe)”, a non-profit organisation that aims to assist and to empower women of all ages in rural communities and marginalized urban communities to take responsibility for their own wellbeing. Simbi calls this part of the show ‘fashion for compassion’ because she is always happy for an opportunity to give back, especially to Zimbabwe. She has a big heart for disadvantaged girls, particularly those in rural areas of Zimbabwe.
