July might be synonymous with sporting meets fashion events, and whilst socialites and celebrities might have flocked to Durban for Vodacom Durban July in South Africa, but in Lusaka, they were were all about the polo field. PR Girl Media hosted their third annual polo event at Lusaka Polo Club themed “Colony of Wealth”.
Guests interpreted the theme liberally and in myriad ways – from perfect florals, to bold hues ranging from a royal purple to vibrant cobalt. Ex Big Brother Africa Star Dillish Matthews and Maps Maponyane came dressed to win in festive camera-ready looks from Damage Designs and Dolce and Gabbana respectively.
The event brought out a star-studded crew including Cleo Ice Queen, Macky 2, Chef 187, Mampi, Bombshell. In addition to sipping on bubbly, the young socialites in attendance took in all the action on the field and hung out at the tents afterward. Entertainers at the Lusaka July including James Sakala, Kuni, Afro Red, DJ Sebestien Dutch, El Mukuka and DJ V Jeezy kept the guests in good spirits .
Stella Artois, Stanbic Bank Zambia, Air Namibia, South African Airways and The Terrace Apartments were the sponsors of the event.
“Lusaka July 2018 is no longer an idea, it is here to stay and I am honoured to have performed at the prestigious event to a crowd of beautiful Zambians”, stated James Sakala.
According to the organisers:
“This is a multi-faceted event, it’s about the fashion but also aims to cater to sports fans with competitive polo matches played along the social activities. This year, we have seen the fusion of fashion and polo in a way that can only get better in the years to come”, stated PR Girl Media Managing Partners Monde and Chishimba Nyambe, the sister-duo who are co-founders of the event.
