Winning! September edition

We have a winner for the September draw. I'll give you a hint ... she's a blogger. (So that's two hints, but that's ok, because you're about to find out who she is.) She wins herself an Awava Kiwanvu Maxi Dress.

A huge congratulation to blogger, Sandy, who blogged about Awava's runway fashion at the Kansas City Fashion Week.

You can still enter to win October's prize, the Ekitanda Duvet Set, by mentioning Awava on your Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or Instagram (@awava). Good luck :)
