THE Simply You Magazine Fashion and Lifestyle Awards have returned and this time around, the organizers have promised an even better spectacle event than the one they hosted last year.
The popularity contest is scheduled to be held on 24 August at the NTN.
Last year the awards saw celebrities, artists, fashion designers, entertainment industry connoisseurs, models and corporate representatives out in jaw-dropping garments to celebrate the celebrity culture and lifestyle as well as fashion. Although there were a few glitches at last year’s event, the magazine’s founder and chief executive officer, Helena Ngaifiwa describe the first awards as a learning experience. “We had to get it wrong or right in order for us to know exactly what we are dealing with” Ngaifiwa said. The categories include favourite celebrity couple, favourite deejay, favourite comedian, favourite blogger, favourite female model, favourite male model, favourite radio dj, favourite fashion designer, favourite emerging designer, favourite photographer, favourite actor, favourite actress, favourite stylist, and favourite makeup artist. The SYM Fashion and Lifestyle organisers have partnered with In Vision Wellness Magazine to add more categories that will complement the wellness and sport lifestyles.
“This is an opportunity for Namibians to celebrate our entertainment industry” said Ndapewashali Shapwanale, the Editor of SYM and spokesperson of the awards.
According to Shapwanale; winners do not necessarily receive any monetary funds for an award, but do receive gifts, such as ‘fully paid weekend holidays’ and ‘free photoshoots’ amongst other gifts. More information about the glitzy event will be revealed as the day pulls closer.
