It is a massive platform that will expose Lesolle to a potential market in all of the Commonwealth’s 52 nations (Blurb)

Internationally-acclaimed local designer Mothusi Lesolle will showcase his Swazi-inspired gown at the Commonwealth Fashion Exchange from February 19 to April this year.

He explains: “I have been chosen to represent Botswana in London for a cultural fashion exchange. It’s a project that has been going on for months now and we will celebrate on February 19 at Buckingham Palace together with other events that will take place that week. My gown will continue to be displayed for months at different locations, including museums in the UK until April when Commonwealth Heads of State summit takes place in London.”

According to Buckingham Palace as stated on RoyalCentral: “The initiative uses fashion as a common language and platform to help people understand the modern Commonwealth in a different way. It will celebrate creativity, sustainable production and manufacturing, trade links and ethical supply chains across the fashion industry, from business and design to textile and fabric design and manufacturing, to craft and artisan skills.”

The Commonwealth Fashion Exchange’s mission is to create partnerships between established and emerging talent from across the 52 member countries.
