Meeting the President of Zambia’s wife and styling BEN TV presenter …

Today I went to the ASAHCA (Association of Spouses of African High Commissioners and Ambassadors) Gala dinner which took place at the 5 star Royal Garden Hotel in high street Kensington. I went to style the evening’s presenter Janet Narh who is professional Radio and TV broadcaster, specialising in current affairs and topical issues. Janet trained as a lawyer, but after ten years moved into broadcasting, specialising in current affairs and news issues. She presents the Woman’s Hour slot on Ben Television, a satellite channel aimed at Africans in the UK, and also spends much of her time supporting and campaigning for women’s equality causes in Africa.

I styled Janet Narh with a fantastic selection of gorgeous jewellery pieces from 4 Season’s Shop ( ) . She looked absolutely amazing I must say! She wore a striking contemporary African Tribal ensemble by Zambian designer Brenda Mwangala.

I also bumped into the gorgeous Justina Mutale CEO of Perryfield Promotions Ltd.

On my table east Miss East Africa (current holder), BEN TV CEO, BEN Technical director, Latifah Jolie ( La Geneve North – ) and the talented African designer Brenda Mwangala.

The Zambian president’s wife, Mrs Maureen Mwanawasa, gave such a touching speech and lots of hope for the future of African women living in Africa.

I entered the evenings raffle. The prizes included 2 return tickets on Kenya Airways to any destination, dinner and bed and breakfast for 2 at the Royal Garden Hotel.

Overall it was a wonderful and entertaining evening.
