Simple and elegant, Vera Shemang
AFW: Hi Vera, tell us more about you
Vera: A young lady striving for near perfection my name is Vera Shemang professional accountant and a managing director in the making. Currently studying towards obtaining my degree in accounting and finance at the University of Botswana. I have amazing friends and have been raised by the most precious parents who I want to make proud. I have a huge passion for sewing and making dresses. In my free times I love to make dresses both for myself, my family and friends. Am a very determined and self driven lady… I possess all the qualities that I need to excel in life. Not forgetting that am Jesus baby… It’s Jesus or nothing!
AFW: We love your sober and sophisticated style, where do you get the inspiration from?
Vera: My inspiration basically comes from me! It don’t mean that I don’t acknowledge other peoples great work but my style is all about me! I centre my style based on what suites my body shape. I just don’t wear anything just because that’s what is trending but I have to first think of how it would look on me considering my shape. Another key element to my style is that I don’t over do things. I believe in looking simple yet classy and elegant. I wanna look like I just woke up wore something on and still turn heads around.
AFW: If you should attend a VIP wedding how would you dress?
Vera: wow! VIP wedding, you got my imagination running mad here. Lol.
Ok one thing is I would try hard not to out shine the bride as it’s her wedding.
I would wear a long mermaid dress with a crossed back. The colour of the dress would be a rich royal blue with gold. The front part to the crossed back will be beaded in rich gold beads and just by the tale I would have a piece of the gold there too at the back most especially.
My shoes would be that peach/orange color.
My clutch bag would be Ankara that has the touch of both my shoe colour and my dress as well. My outfit can’t be completed without something African.
No accessories because the gold beads will finish everything for me. I will wear a small stud as my ear ring.
My hair will be an up do so that I don’t cover the cross at the back.
My make up will have to be a simple one. Preferable nude make up so that the attention would be on the dress and not my face.
Yeah that’s my VIP wedding dress.
AFW: Thank you Vera, we wish you all the best
