According to the founder of Aboutthatcurvylife.com, Latasha Ngwube,
We could not have been included on Africa’s most organic and progressive fashion event at a more strategic time. All over the world there has been a spotlight on body positivity and fashion inclusion for more than just runway sizes. This year’s theme of “Connecting the dots” is more than just a catchy phrase and we are glad to be a part of Heineken LFDW 2016, thanks to Intel. Bringing this vision to life has been an unforgettable experience so far…my background and decade long experience in the fashion and lifestyle industry prepared me for this role as Creative Director of the #Aboutthatcurvylife Collective and this is only the beginning
