In case you missed it. Lioness launched her first ever fashion line in partnership with Namibian fashion brand SynEDGY.
Monochrome had the chance to chat with the ever so beautiful and fiercely talented Lioness on her recent launch of her debut fashion line, “CilQ”.
At her exclusive launch on a beautiful warm evening, on the 10th of May 2019, close friends and fashion enthusiasts were in attendance to witness her collection in collaboration with snyEDGY.
Lioness felt there was a need for women, men, trans, queer and basically everybody to feel sexy, luxurious at an affordable rate.
Lioness spent some time researching which fabric would best describe how someone wearing CilQ would feel and experience.
I looked at some designs that used satin. Images from Pinterest and did thorough research on different body types and how to tailor it to my specifications.
Her love for fashion meant she needed to work with someone she trusted in the fashion industry here in Namibia, hence the collaboration with fashion brand synEDGY.
Simeone understood that Lioness wanted whoever wore CilQ to feel sexy at a festival, an intimate dinner or even at a summer braai.
Lioness’ biggest fear when starting out this new venture meant that she would be doing something that stands less of a chance to succeed in Namibia because sometimes it is just not feasible. Following her gut feeling and seeing that she needed to expand her love for fashion. CilQ was born.
This unisex collection is made for everyone. Prices range from N$400.00-N$800.00. Custom-made pieces are also available on request.
The best part of this collaboration is that it is unique. Made for Namibians by Namibians.
Lioness’ next steps are to venture into entrepreneurship and become her own boss babe.
So stay tuned for more.
