news Weâ€™ve got the scoop on whatâ€™s happening at Edgars. Pictures by Mike Wall
A TOUCH OF CLASS 16
It was an auspicious occasion as we celebrated a fusion of fashion and dance with a touch of class at the National Ballet High Tea held at the Meikles on June 9th. In their efforts to fundraise for development, The Dance Trust of Zimbabwe partnered with Edgars stores to showcase the unique combination of dance and fashion. The proceeds of the event went towards bringing five ballerinas from The Cape Town City Ballet to Harare to produce and star in Ballet Beautiful at Reps Theatre in early August this year. Edgars came to the party showcasing an assortment of formal and casual apparel for the whole family, particularly our in-house brands, the likes of Kelso, Signature, Merien Hall and Penny C. The event was also streamed live on our facebook page (EdgarsZimbabwe) which enabled our customers to view the fashion show in the comfort of their homes.

What to see, do and experience in the months of August and September
On being involved with Black Panther I’ve always felt blessed to be a part of this because I could understand the response, in the sense that this is imagery and narrative that many of us have yearned for. I know, being a black woman who’s from Zimbabwe and from the United States, I’ve yearned for this type of imagery. I mean, it’s one of those things I’m just excited it was getting made. The idea of actually touching into Africans being treated with this sort of respect and on this type of a platform, and the narrative coming from, you know, the black perspective entirely. And the sort of pride. There’s
something about the pride that this shows, that Wakanda shows — African pride, black pride, pride of your people, of your culture, of you know, who you are outside of any hegemonical influence, and how you can create your own hegemony right there amongst your own people. That, I think, is something people have really attached to. And I get it, being that I’m African, but you know I think it’s beyond that. Many, many people of every different race I’ve come across are really attaching to that, and it’s just been really thrilling. I really couldn’t have anticipated it. On the experience of
making a blockbuster It’s great. I mean, I think what’s really exciting to
talent to watch
me is the idea that it’s a blockbuster where I’m speaking Xhosa, you know? I just think that’s the coolest thing in the world. Xhosa — it’s the same language that is native to Nelson Mandela. It’s from the Cape region
of South Africa. And Mr. John Kani, who plays T’Challa’s father, T’Chaka, he’s Xhosa. And so they started and agreed to that language being the language of Wakanda in Captain America: Civil War, where of course, T’Chaka is unfortunately killed. Feel like doing something a little different.Take a walk to the Harare Botanical Gardens. Make an afternoon of it and take a picnic basket.The gardens are located on Sandringham Dr, Harare

Who will the king choose? Award-winning artist John Steptoe’s rich cultural imagery of Africa earned him the Coretta Scott King Award for Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters.

GADGETS ROKU HD STREAMING STICK
Now you can stream just almost anything you want like blockbusters, broadcast TV, big entertainment brands, and niche channels. And of course there are your favorite Movies, TV shows, live sports, news and music! This is a pretty decent price too!. The Streaming Stick, plugs into the HDMI port of any HD television, offering many of the Roku 4’s best features, such as Netflix, YouTube, Spotify and Hulu streaming, along with casting from your phone to the television. The updated Stick is also the first Roku product to boast Roku OS 7.1, which adds additional categories in the Feed. But perhaps the best addition is the ability to stream the Roku’s sound output to the company’s Android or iOS app. More expensive Roku boxes boast a headphone port in the included remote, but to cut costs the Streaming Stick’s remote lacks that option. So here Roku decided to route the Stick’s audio to a connected smartphone app.

No matter who you are, keeping your life (and ideas) organized is a virtue. Evernote is one of those applications that slows time in an ever more fast-paced world, allowing you to keep track of just about anything. The app has quickly become something of a classic, and it’s certainly a worthwhile upgrade to the basic Notes app users find on their iPhones or iPads.
An epic adventure set in the last Ice Age. Europe, 20,000 years ago. While on his first hunt with his tribe’s most elite group, a young man is injured and left for dead. Awakening to find himself broken and alone -- he must learn to survive and navigate the harsh and unforgiving wilderness. Reluctantly taming a lone wolf abandoned by its pack, the pair learn to rely on each other and become unlikely allies, enduring countless dangers and overwhelming odds in order to find their way home before the deadly winter arrives. TRIVIA & PRODUCTION NOTES Based on a story by Albert Hughes., The Solutrean
(14 SEPTEMBER) From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race. TRIVIA & PRODUCTION NOTES: A sequel to the 1987 sci-fi film, Predator. Originally conceived as a reboot of the Predator franchise until Shane Black came aboard and said he’s making a sequel to the franchise instead. *These prices and dates were correct at the time of print.
