HOUSE OF KONGO BY MARIA FOSTER FASHION SHOW

 

Saturday, 30 July 2016

1:00pm - 6:00pm

At MOAD, 281 Commissioner Street, Jeppestown, Maboneng

You are invited to the private viewing of Maria Foster's fashion show. The fashion designer behind the emerging label House of Kongo, knows a thing or two about uncomplicated elegance. Her mission? To dress women in pieces that embody a certain je ne sais quoi-relaxed yet refined, nonchalant yet impeccably constructed. Looking to Paris, Antwerp and New York for inspiration, her latest collection embodies the spirit of elegance in the city. Though the offerings swerve more in the casual-cool direction, they're still imbued with Maria's signature sophistication.

The program:

13:00 - Welcoming guests

13:30 - Welcoming Drinks

13:45 - MC to open the show

14:00 - Fashion Show start

14:45 - End of the Fashion Show

15:00 - Champagne , Music and Food

16:00 - Opening of the pop up store with the DJ and champagne

18:00 - End of the show

Design Thinking Workshop

Join us for a Design Thinking Workshop!

Tickets available on Quicket.

Design is not only a hot topic in the latest retail concepts, urban strategies, and new buildings; but the way designers think is becoming increasingly sought after by the world's leading business consultants and entrepreneurs.

Design Thinking has been the focus of new Business School programs, like the "D School" at Stanford and the Media Lab at MIT. The Harvard Business Review has dedicated entire issues to the topic. At the Museum of African Design, we see design in its infinite forms across the continent. The tech scene in Nairobi is using design to rethink global financial systems. Furniture designers in Dakar are exporting works to Europe and North America made out of scraps from commodities that were imported from the same places. South African medical companies are changing the way hospitals and doctors work. Design Thinking is at the route of some of the world's best marketing, sales, and operational strategies.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” 
Nelson Mandela

We believe education is important: it can maintain the status quo or challenge, liberate and transform. Who are the people across Southern Africa wielding this powerful weapon? Three photographers traveled over 4000 kilometers via public transport to celebrate and share stories of Southern African schooling. Journey with us to meet the leaders and learners of Southern African education. 

Through the instagram accounts of @stickylittleleaves (Rebecca Crook, Joburg/Nairobi), @diaryofzach (Zach Louw, Cape Town), @samvox (Sameer Satchu, Dar Es Salaam), Everyday Education explores the stories of resilience in the classroom throughout in Sub-Saharn Africa. Visitors have the opportunity to participate in a mock classroom experience, and to contribute photographs, artefacts, and written anecdotes about their own education interactions.
