FASHION DESIGNER SHERIA NGOWI ADDRESSES ALLEGATIONS REGARDING ONE OF HIS 2011 CREATIONS.

Leave a comment


Tanzanian renowned fashion designer Sheria Ngowi whose work has set a high benchmark in fashion designing in the country released a statement today to address the ongoing allegations circulating on social media regarding a counterfeit of one of his 2011 creations.

Sheria Ngowi confirms that the design in question is his own creation and was created in his current workshop located in China in 2011 while working on the Miss Tanzania 2011 Collection. The workshop is shared by different designers and buyers from across the world.

“The business of counterfeit goods is the largest underground industry in the world. Fashion design is huge business in Asia and is a booming industry globally but sadly so is the fake designer garment industry . Fashion designers in various countries are struggling to keep up with their clothes being copied and are facing a losing battle in many cases.” Said Mr. Ngowi when addressing the matter. “Seeing people selling imitations of your clothes is not easy to swallow since it means financial loss for your business”.

One of the issues contributing to high piracy of designer clothes is the dramatic rise in fashion industry and the internet. The more fashion designers get exposure, the more the chances are of their designs being copied. There are so many fashion events these days, and with the rise of social media most high-end designs are available online within moments of the garments being worn. Buyers from around the world seize these opportunities to make copies and sometimes unfortunately from the same workshops that the designers use to produce their work.

“Some designers have been quoted saying that fashion imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. When one’s designs are copied it goes to show that they have really made an impact in the industry. But I say, it is really when the imitation is so blatant that you can’t tell a difference between the imitated and the imitator that flattery becomes mockery” said Mr. Ngowi .

Any type of infringement is serious and spells financial disaster for the business involved. In the world of fashion, however, the existence of copycats is ten-folds than  anywhere else. Some of the most recent copyright designer battles involved mega brands like Gucci vs Guess, Prada vs Zara, and DVF vs Forever 21 where the small retailers were sued by the big designer houses for taking “designer inspiration” too far till one cannot tell the difference.

Mr. Ngowi wishes to assure his loyal customers, friends and supporters that the allegations of him copying a dress by another designer are completely false and inaccurate.  He confirms to be the creator of the alleged dress. He has further information of the dress being copied in other countries apart from China and he is working with his Legal Advisors to take the necessary legal steps against the perpetrators.

Leave a comment


Baada ya mtangazaji wa radio na msanii wa muziki Loveness aka Diva kuachia wimbo ‘Piga Simu’ aliomshirikisha Diamond, safari yake ya muziki haina dalili ya kusimama hivi karibuni kwakuwa ana mipango mikubwa na kufanya ngoma na ‘big cats’ in the game.
“Whatchu all think? Remix coming featuring Ommy Dimpoz na ndio video tutatoa sasa with the boys,Ommy Dimpoz and Diamond …all we need is something good not only a video but Diva kinda video …next level kabisa, the moment ntarelease remix and the video will continue sasa,” aliandika kwenye blog yake.
“Second song itakuja featuring Mr. Blue na ntaitoa after Diva Giving for charity event and namtafuta Blue for that muda si mrefu sana. He is the perfect feature for my second song, ana fit as in my verses are ready and the beat omg Fishcrab again as u know.”
Katika hatua nyingine baada ya kuongezeka kwa maswali mengi juu ya nani aliyemwimbia kwenye ‘Piga Simu’ mwezi uliopita na kuandikwa vibaya aliamua kufunguka na kutoa ufafanuzi.
‘Sijataja mtu jina …and are you sure huyo unaemuhisi au unayemtaja natoka nae? maana nilivyosema sina boyfriend for years mlisema Diva msagaji Diva this Diva that , nasema nina boyfriend nimemuimbia nyimbo mnaanza sasa kunitajia list ndefu , you guys got time I swear,you all don’t know a bit about me,” aliandika.
“Acheni kuzusha mambo ya ajabu na kusambaza,maana asilimia ya mambo ninayoandikwa na kuongelewa that’s so not me , nijueni basi kidogo ndo mnizungumzie.”
Aliendelea kuandika, “Tupeane break sasa, mjueni Mungu a bit maana it’s too much sasa. Next thing what???Diva freemason labda maana ndio zenu hizi mpya while am a very Good Christian and church is the right thing for me every sundays . Serious what next jamani??? What next??
