Sinikiwe Moyo’s Thank you Speech:
‘Thank you for the Zimbabwe Achievers Fashion Designer Of The Year Award. I can’t express how grateful I am to have been nominated amongst all the other amazingly talented Zimbabwean Fashion Designers in the UK. I am so honoured and grateful to be the recipient of this award.
To be considered for an award for Fashion Designer Of The Year is a great honour and a privilege. Thank you Zimbabwe Achievers Awards for putting up this amazingly successful event and for all your great support and kindness. May you all at ZAA be blessed abundantly for being the beam of light for all of us Zimbabweans at these dark times when we need it most. Sticking together in these tough times strengthens our bond and rising together means we can all win.
I also want to thank #Fashion4Africa for helping me get back on track and refocus on my fashion career after they got me out of a dark cloud which I probably wouldn’t have been able to come out of due to personal life circumstances. They work with Fashion Designers and Models of African backgrounds, with a goal to train, mentor, share, and develop creative skills within the African Diaspora and talent in Africa. I got involved with Fashion4Africa in 2017 and I participated in their annual fashion competition which I won the prize for Fashion Designer Of The Year. To say they have helped and supported me is an understatement. As part of the prize, the mentorship and development I have received from them is priceless. Thank you to Anna Njie, Founder and CEO of #Fashion4Africa for your support and kindness. Your love, dedication and dream for Africa is way bigger than the whole continent of Africa itself.
Another big thanks to Deborah St. Louis Director of #FashionsFinestUK, the second largest event for UK and International Designers during London Fashion Week for helping my breakthrough in the challenging UK fashion industry. The prize I won from Fashion4Africa was sponsored by Fashions Finest to showcase my next season collection with them during London Fashion Week which took place on the 18th of February 2018. Your desire to uplift and empower underprivileged emerging designers like myself amazingly mirrors your beauty inside and outside. May you be blessed for your kindness and generosity.
I am also especially grateful to a few amazing people whose support is the reason I have managed to accomplish all this: All my family and friends, I can’t mention all of you as I may need a whole book, all my Gloucester work colleagues, Themba Phakathi Phakathi Angelo Pucello Lorenzo Udo Omire (Double Stitches), Felix Facknou Corrinne Kolatsi and the girls for your support during London fashion Week, Julienne Saint Louis Augustin Justine Kiyaga Edith Samambwa Monalisa Ncube Ng Thompson Grace SibandaKwame Koranteng Bespoke for being inspirational, Alfredo J Carreira Ndey Manneh

Last but not least, I would like to thank everyone who supported and voted. Without your continued support, I would never be in a position to accomplish what I have. So thank you.
Once again to Zimbabwe Archivers Awards and all the Zimbabwean community, MINA LAWE SILOMSEBENZI. Our work is far from over but if we can put our heads together, we can managed to put together some solutions for a gateway to overcome the obstacles within our society and rebuild our lost Bread Basket, Our Zimbabwe’.
As Henry Ford says, “Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success “.
