Namibian born and bred Ennio Hamutenya has revived the classic Fedora without losing the hat’s classic aesthetic. The tweaks made to the classic silhouette by LORD EMH make a unique and distinct statement to style. This revival perfectly captures the essence of modernity, making it ideal for fans of fedoras and hats in general. Using only the finest fabrics from a traditional factory, they create the hats in Florence, Italy. Steeped in craftsmanship and respecting millinery techniques, the hats are an ode to a bygone era and superior level of quality. These are beautifully made soft 100% rabbit felt pieces, lined with hand dyed 100% silk lining and a raw edge finish are available in four distinct shapes and colours.

His mission was to create something that no one has ever seen before and something that will always be recognised. The hats are unique, exclusive and come in four distinct styles, each of which one can view on the website, www.lordemh.com. What makes the hats even more unique and clearly shows the deep Namibian roots of their designer, Ennio Hamutenya, is the trademark “The burn”, (it’s a natural burn that covers an about 10 cm width of the back, left corner of each hat). The burn lends an extra level of uniqueness to the hat and comes from the ancient Oshiwambo tradition Ekala po lupale, a Namibian tradition that honours the Alpha male of the village or tribe by keeping times. When an Alpha male or female is present, you are acknowledging their power and presence. When a man or a woman wears the LORD EMH Fedora, they are embracing their style and own power. Ennio believes everyone seeks power in his or her own way and his collection symbol of protection, unity and power. The symbol is a mirrored in the hat collection by a simple but powerful natural burn on the border of each hat and is Ennio’s homage to his homeland and that of his ancestors. The brand’s ambition is international luxury fashion brand specialising in timeless creations that will always be in style. It does this whilst at the same time demonstrating that although Namibia is a country with a small population, its culture and heritage is something that it can contribute to the world.

Her sculptures in clay and papier-mâché with traditional beads from northern Namibia highlight the difference between traditional and contemporary cultures, while combining the position of women in the pursuit of wealth. “Our leaders have lost their interest in ruling and all they do managers give themselves fake loans, church leaders, doctors and traditional healers sell fake treatments. “Women sell their bodies, happiness and peace of mind, while men become murderers.

We have to ask for wealth and why we always want more, while there are people with nothing. What is the cost of wealth?” she asks. The exhibition opens to the public Monday to Thursday from October 4-20 during the hours 09h00-17h30 and Fridays 9h00-14h00.

NSK Industry Loop Dating an entertainer: Part 2 Last April we helped you with tips for dummies on how to not only survive but also thrive in a relationship with an entertainer. Dating an entertainer kashipu, and hence, one could sum up the consensus at the time in three words: a) accept b) communicate and c) contextualise. Accept because well accept that your partner is an entertainer. That’s what they do. That’s who they are. Being an where you put on a nice skirt and suit for the day and take It’s in their blood. That’s all they know and that’s all they do. Accept that. He will have fans that are cuter than you are meme. She will have these COTAs with six packs, vraa paas and money that will at every chance try to score her omes. She will take pictures of everything. He will upload everything on social media and time will always be an issue. Communicate because an entertainer’s schedule is insanely hectic. Hence, they won’t always have the time to stop, pause, and accept an emotion for what it is. That’s where you come in. Initiate the communication fam. Entertainers generally struggle to communicate, hence, why you should slot in and initiate it. “Why must I always be the one to initiate blah blah blah”. Los dei attitude abuti seun; remember what I said right at the beginning? Dating an entertainer is not easy. A whole day can pass without getting a text from your entertainer special somebody. It’s not that she does not caught up in the nature of her work, which can be insanely hectic. When it comes to contextualising, the sword will need to fall on the entertainer. The entertainer in the relationship needs to take time out to explain the nature of their work to their special somebody. Otherwise, when you come back home in the early hours of the morning from studio sessions, your person will not understand. Or when you are moody because you received some negative feedback regarding your art… your person won’t understand the impact it’s having on you. As the entertainer… contextualise the intricacies of your work to your neck friend. Do all three of these and it can only result in a harmonious relationship. That was the advice last year. Still is! Have you since tried to follow the Industry Loop 3 step guideline to not only surviving but also thriving in a loving relationship with an entertainer? If you haven’t… let me guess what has been the case. You two hardly talk. He hardly shows affection, and when he does show affection it’s as a result of the consumption of forbidden substances. You’re hella stressed. You hardly get to spend time with her. You have no idea what his work is about. You don’t understand the mechanics that goes into her end product. You cannot for the life of Mr. Deliver, Deliver, Deliver understand his mood swings. Listen to me. #SwitchesOnMadeaVoice Hear my voice echoing right down your eardrum #SwitchesOffMadeaVoice. Go back to what I said last year a) Accept b) communicate and c) contextualise. Until the next loop, we say “GMTM”!
