It is promised to be one of the most exciting events of the year.

This year’s fashion show, will yet again-for the third time running-see the multi-faceted, director and producer for special events, stage and television; in fashion, music and lifestyle, Jan Malan, collaborate with Masa Square Hotel.

The Hotel is set to showcase a ‘one-of-a kind international couture experience’, which will see thirteen of the country’s seasoned fashion designers, display their Botswana garments with much pride and enthusiasm, as the Hotel transforms the streets of Gaborone’s Central Business District (CBD), into a spectacular runway.  Speaking on the choice of theme, Masa Square Hotel General Manager, Hayden Bowl said, “This year our beloved country has made a number of strides and gained international recognition in the media and society at large. Stories are being shared; both positive and negative, the underlying issue remains that they are told from a foreign lens.’’  ‘Masa Square Hotel recognises that the time is now to tell our narrative as Batswana. Who are we? What do we have to offer? What does it mean to be proudly Motswana today? Hence the title ‘Spotlight on Botswana’ ’’ he added.


Masa Square Hotel believes that there is no time than the present, to share our country’s narrative to the world. The Hotel is proud to bring to fashion enthusiasts and revelers alike a fashion show by Batswana for Batswana.

“As a business first luxury hotel, we understand the importance of highlighting the unique, relevant, robust story of our beloved country that is authentically US. We wish to shine the spotlight on Botswana’s inherent passion and talent in the Fashion and Creative industry. The time is NOW.” Bowl exclaimed.
