IN what could be best described as good news for fashion designers, there will be a fashion show at this year’s Eswatini Biggest Braai.
The Biggest Braai is slated for July 22-23 at Mavuso Sports Centre.
This was revealed by Philani Maswati Charity Organisation Chairperson Lutfo Dlamini during a preparatory meeting held at the Municipal Council of Manzini Chambers yesterday.
Dlamini said they were bringing top designers and models from South Africa, Botswana and Eswatini to showcase their designs. Dlamini said they would also have the fastest growing sport in the world, which is car spinning. He said they had signed a contract with Team Bremer.
He further stated that they would have a concert as well as a battle of disc jokes (DJs).
He added that they would also host a top South African artist whom they would unveil in the next few days as they were still finalising a few things.
“We have noted that in some events, invited guests end up not coming, so we are avoiding that scenario. We want to make sure that whatsoever we invite will be available on the day. We rather under promise than overpromise,” Dlamini said.
During the meeting, the Biggest Braai organising committee which comprised of representatives from Philani Maswati Charity Organisation, security forces (government and private security forces), ministry of health, Municipal Council of Manzini and sponsors were present.
According to Dlamini, not everyone understands the concept of the Biggest Braai.
He pointed out that the Biggest Braai was aimed at raising funds for the charity organisation.
He said those who have anniversaries that fall within the date of the event, be it birthdays or wedding anniversaries, would also be catered for.
“If you have any event to celebrate on the day, then you must register. We have found a donor who will supply the biggest cake so that all those who have something to celebrate can have a piece, like we have done in the previous years,” he said. He assured the public that security measures would be strengthened during the event.
Dlamini also reminded the nation that COVID-19 was not yet over, hence he encouraged those who would be attending the event to adhere to all precautions. “For instance if you have not vaccinated, you should try and protect yourself from contracting the virus by wearing face masks,” he said.
Dlamini encouraged vendors that stalls were still available at E500 and urged them to bring their own gazebos. He stated that the event would commence in the morning and lasts for the whole day with children games in the morning such as horse riding.
