Miss South Africa Zozibini Tunzi has arrived in the Big Apple, for the New York Fashion Week.
The South African beauty was crowned the country’s fairest last month, and has already embarked on her duties at home and abroad.
While at the highly publicized fashion week, Zozibini will be highlighting some African clothing, wearing pieces from Belgian-born Mozambican designer Eliana Morargy’s ‘Basking in the Osun River’ collection. She will also wear a Mpondoland inspired gown by designer Laduma Ngxokolo.
On arrival in New York, Zozibini spent time at the South African consulate, where she met South Africa’s ambassador.
”In the city of dreams! 🗽🗽🗽 I had quite a morning spending time at the South African consulate meeting with our country’s ambassador. We had a very productive conversation with various members of the consulate around what’s happening in our country and how we can best serve the women of our nation,” she wrote on Instagram.
This is her first trip abroad, not only as Miss South Africa but since she was born, and it is clear she is enjoying herself.
On another Instagram post she wrote, ”This is me in Time Square, New York. It is my first time out of South Africa and I should be overjoyed but I am ridiculously torn. My heart is back home with all the women in this difficult time.
A month ago on the 9th of August I stood in front of the whole country and spoke from the heart about the plight of South African women and today it stands true more than ever. Something has got to change”
