Fashion Without Borders makes Gaborone debut in April 2015

""The Fashion Without Borders (FWB) Designers Road Show, which promises to set trends for fashionistas in Botswana will be held on Saturday 25 April 2015 at Liban Mediterranean Cuisine at the Central Business District (CBD).

After successful road shows in Gauteng South Africa, Fashion Without Borders (FWB) will be bringing the show to Botswana.

FWB, a new division of Efigy Productions, is renowned for having organised among other events, Miss Emfuleni; FWB Vaal; Sedibeng Fashion Expo and Gauteng Fashion Show at the Sansui Summer Cup 2012.

“FWB is all about giving a platform to upcoming, unrecognized Designers and Models. We are also delighted to have the support of local businesses such as Liban Lounge and The Voice Newspaper Botswana who have come on board as partners. FWB is one way in which we wish to encourage local businesses to take pride in nurturing untapped talent which will ultimately contribute towards a strong pool of talent from Botswana to compete on international platforms”, said FWB partner Serge Kabisoso.

He said as artists they look for subtle beauty, and Liban for them is the perfect venue for the event because of its architectural charm complementing the artistic direction the show will be taking. “We are confident of delivering a great show which will leave Batswana proud of their own”, he concluded.

A majority of the models and designers at the FWB show will be from Botswana, with contributing designers from other African countries such as K.O.B.O Couture from Nigeria, Ali Adam from Ghana and Déjà Vu Designs from South Africa. Guests will be treated to the trendiest of designs, some of which will be available for sale at the venue.

According to their website Efigy Productions is a rapidly growing Enterprise in the Entertainment Industry, with interests ranging from Modeling, Fashion Design and Events and Promotions. Established in the Sedibeng region, Efigy Productions is fast establishing itself as a key competitor and role player in the region’s Entertainment industry, with a vision to spread its influence countrywide and on the sub continent.

Efigy Productions is growing its client base, with a potential on the horizon for expanding its vistas throughout South Africa and the sub continent. Existing and prospective clients include Business, Higher Education (HE) Institutions as well as government agencies that from time to time need services it renders.

It is also exploring possibilities of introducing its Fashion House’s creations to the general public. Each of Efigy Productions units, i.e., Efigy Fashion House, Efigy Events and Promotions and Efigy Models have already undertaken a few assignments, with others being in an advanced planning stage.

Creatives taking over 2023

26th September 2023

Creativity is seen everywhere and these individuals did something recently that’s never been done before, and some are still killing it. We see creativity on streaming platforms, stages, runways, social media and boardrooms even. Some of them are revamping their businesses, and lately, clothing sale is thriving.

They love concept-driven designs, storytelling and they bring fresh ideas and new perspectives that will leave footprints in the sand. Post the COVID-19 pandemic, these creative minds utilized the drawing board and they became cognizant that monetizing content will actually take them far, which is frank nonetheless.

This is commendable though, but the creative industry will still need support from government in order for it to flourish further. Allocation of resources (funds, facilities and empowerment) should be done consistently, creativity must be raised and at the end of the day, the economy benefits from that kind of investment.


Ever since he parted ways with his former manager, DJ Bougee Sid, Mahalapye born-pint sized, multi-award-winning artist, Hanceford Magapatona has been taking up space, unapologetically so. Han C has shown a strong will to take over the entire world, and he is in the right direction. He’s solely organizing the annual Mahalapye Spring Festival, which is taking place next weekend.

The Pepetetsa hitmaker raked some monies from his savings to put together this event. Mahalapye Spring Festival will feature Paige, Ubuntu Band, Khoisan, Amantle Brown and Double Up among others. Even though it didn’t come as a surprise, Han C was nominated at African Muzik Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA) in the US, under Best Male Southern Africa category.

However, the award was snatched by the late South African rapper, AKA. Its not all lost as Han C secured two nominations at the Yarona FM Music Awards (YAMAs): People’s Choice of the Year and Best Male Single.


This entrepreneur has turned his dreams into reality, and his promising apparel business is now a fashion destination. Matter of fact, Motswagole weathered the storms to be where he is now because through criticism and social media bullying, he still leads the pack in fashion.

His social media accounts got deleted but through his online store, KM Sales, Motswagole is able to rake in some profits. He initially started selling from his car but now owns a busy store and has employed a number of young people.

KM Sales has been offering fashionable items (shoes, t-shirts, pants) and has been participating in various lifestyle events such as Garden of Drip where it showcases its products.

If there is one young entrepreneur to draw motivation from is Koketso. The business started from humble beginnings, at the time when he worked part time at Ipelegeng as a casual labor. Indeed, good things come to those who wait, or well, work like a slave today, live like a king tomorrow.


Vee Mampeezy’s ex-wife Kagiso De Klerk clearly did not sit and weep over their dramatic divorce. The famous social media influencer hurriedly picked up the pieces and went hard on promoting business online. She literally took social media influencing to the head and it is working for her.

This year saw her partnership with Shell reach greater heights, and obviously, she is raking lot of pulas from the deal. Kagiso has been making frequent appearances in top events in South Africa such as Bubbles in Spring and Gold and Diamond Experience.


After a long break from the limelight, renowned media and radio personality, Gaona Dintwe is back. She was missed by many on TV, and she’s back where she belongs, news anchoring on BTV. Gaona has also found a niche in podcasting. She is a host of her own podcast, Gaona Live Conversation, where various people share their stories on camera.

Some of what they discuss is Gender Based Violence (GBV), polygamy and drug addiction. This is highly commendable because even BTV doesn’t have programs that discuss these crucial social issues. The Lentswelemoruti native is also seen in various corporate events where she is engaged as a host.
