Description

NNUA proudly presents CONNECKT|NG:
.pop-up store
.brand launch
.fundraiser
.fashion show

.showcase
.gallery exhibit


NNUA is always passionate about bringing cause to our events! This pop-up store is in support of Amza “Eli Gold” Niyonzima, a Rwandan-born artist who is boldly illuminating the Cape Town, South Africa fashion scene. As a child, he was forced to flee his village, due to the Rwandan Genocide, and seek refuge in South Africa. He hasn’t seen his family in 13 years, and for the first time he will be returning, for his brother’s wedding, with our help! CONNECKT|NG's proceeds will go towards presenting him with our first-ever Elfreda Munroe Memorial Award of Innovation. See his journey unfold at: https://www.masamara.co.za/


Elfreda Munroe (lovingly called Aunty Betty) was my paternal aunt. She embodied an unapologetic African essence from head to toe, and equipped herself with knowledge of her ancestry. She understood the value of surrounding herself with her reflection, and not waiting for anyone to tell her she was beautiful. She also understood the value of self-knowledge and ritual, and passed this on to her community. She is my inspiration, my muse, and I'm fully committed to following in her footsteps. CONNECKT|NG is in honour of her beautiful legacy.
