Design Label MIA presents its Spring/Summer 2014 Collection Lookbook

Paging Malawian fashion enthusiasts!

Let’s take a walk on the borders of Malawi with design label MIA‘s new 2013 collection. Created by designer Mia Nisbet, the collection is a testimony to her ethos of creating ethical and sustainable fashion from Africa and for Africans, which she also refers to as up-cycled fashion. She fuses recycled fabrics and traditional Malawian textiles to create collections that combine the richness of African fabrics and cultures with Western styles.
According to the designer in an interview with the collection’s lookbook fashion photographer Adam Marc Williams, creating up-cycled fashion is “more than recycling clothing. It involves a whole process of deconstruction, re design and reconstruction. An up- cycled garment will utilize an old dis-guarded garment and give it a completely new lease of live as a completely reinvented garment
Well, let’s see what she created with her pro-recycled fashion movement and fashion expertise.

Hear This Guy Shaa - " This World Cup is for Jonathan – Eaglets Coach"

So other Nigerians con be wetin?
This World Cup is for Jonathan – Eaglets Coach

Coach Manu Garba has dedicated Nigeria’s fourth FIFA U-17 World Cup victory to President Goodluck Jonathan and his wife.

Away from the battery of cameras and in the hallowed corridors of Al Jazira’s dressing room in Abu Dhabi, Manu said both President Jonathan and his wife more than anybody deserved praise for the feat he achieved with his team.
He recalled it was only President Jonathan that hosted the boys upon their return from the African U-17 Championship, where they came second.
“This trophy is for President Goodluck Jonathan, who had a strong belief in us despite the fact that we came second at the African championship,” MTNFootball.com quoted the Eaglets coach as saying after the team’s victory on Friday.
“We were really fired up when he hosted us after the African Championship and we are looking forward to meeting Mr. President again with the World Cup.”
Manu described President Jonathan as a very lucky man after the Golden Eaglets followed the footsteps of the Super Eagles for winning a major trophy in 2013.
The senior national team started the year with glorious outing at the African Nations Cup in South Africa and the Golden Eaglets World Cup win is more than an icing on the cake as 2013 drags to an end.
He revealed that his wife was the first person he called immediately after the final whistle of the match that saw his young guns dethrone Mexico as champions and entered the pantheon of world football as the first to win a record fourth world title.
“In fact, for the past four months I was not able to see my wife because of the nature of this job and I’m so happy that all the efforts we put into this work was not in vain,” he said.
“I want to use this opportunity to thank my wife for taking care of the home front.”
Manu also heaped praise on both Senator Liyel Imoke, Governor of Cross River State and Nigeria’s Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates, His Excellency Ibrahim Auwalu who rode on the team’s bus in company of Nigeria Football Federation’s President Aminu Maigari for a dinner reception hosted by the Nigeria Embassy in the UAE.
