The fashion industry in Kenya is growing bigger and betters each year and what better way to celebrate our African fashion prowess than dedicating a whole week to all things fashion.
This past weekend (24th – 26th Nov 2017) the summer/spring edition was held at the Nairobi International Convention and Conference Centre and the theme was ‘Arise’.
The 3 day event was an all glam affair from the designers pieces showcased, to the red carpet moment, the street styles from models and the pop up shops. The runway featured international designers from all over the Africa and beyond. Some of them include Alexander Akande (Cameroon), Matseliso Mphaka (Lesotho),Paakow Essandoh (Ghanaian), Armstrong Loga (Cameroon), Thokozani Freedom Mbatha ( Durban), Sam Omondi (Kenyan), Rawan Bahabri (Saudi Arabia), Yaan Djossonou ( Benin), Ines Claudia and Diane Umugwaneza (Belgium), Safietou Seck (Senegal), Idil Abdi Mohammed ( Kenyan), Alexandria Garcia ( Spain), Brian Lenze ( South African), Ingo Shanyege ( UK), Debbie Oyugi (Kenyan), Fatuma Asha (Ugandan), Irina Karataeva (Russian), Rosalina Sina Tlelase (Lesotho), Megan Smith ( USA).
