Model and fashion designer Vejama Ndjiharine loves to kill on the catwalks.
She participated in MTC Windhoek Fashion Week 2021 as a model and advertised various clothes on the catwalk for, among others, Siuna Designs, House of Tsatago and Made by Ngaa.
Last year, she walked the runway in Couture by Kim’s Safari line and Kala Crochet’s summer / spring outfits.
“I model because I love to wear clothes, and I don’t limit myself when it comes to clothes. So, I like to see myself in all the clothes that I kill on the catwalk, ”said Ndjiharine. VIBE!
She started modeling in 7th grade and was motivated and supported by her parents throughout the early stages of her modeling career, which is why she continued.
“I love the experience of meeting new designers, models and the whole experience.”
Outside of modeling, she designs clothes that she always presents to her mother.
Not knowing what to do after graduating from high school in 2016, she started researching fashion design in Namibia and how to further her fashion knowledge.
Ndjiharine (24) then enrolled at the Katutura Community Art Center in 2019, and learned about design knowledge. It was then that she realized her full potential and abilities in the design and fashion industry.
Her clothing line is called Dvaam and was launched in 2020 at the College of the Arts Fashion Show. She sells her parts online.
Ndjiharin said his goal in the modeling industry is to advocate for equality for all and fair opportunities for all.
Without revealing much, she said that she had plans for many things, with the direction and love of God.
“I’m still young. Having said that, we’ll see how things play out and then I’ll know what to do next on my list,” she added.
Walking in Couture by Kim’s Safari line, she said, “I loved how I felt and how I looked in the Odelela jumpsuit. It made me feel like a tourist who has traveled a lot with a comfortable Shilongo leather hat for the harsh sun and a pair of their trusted Shilongo leather shoes.
