The Fashion Couture Affair continues to position themselves strategically as one of the big names in the fashion business even as they continue to involve more players and rub shoulders with the status quo. The organizers of the event are also young men and women who inspire many youths of this generation to keep working hard on their passion and always strive to succeed despite the odds.

Many young people in Kenya and in Africa continue to be the force of change in society and especially in the fashion and modeling industry.

The Fashion Couture Affair has very much indeed raised the bar higher, in terms of penetration in the region and everyone will be looking forward to the 6th edition which will be held in the country later this year.

This was the first time the event was being held outside Kenya and the crowd was amazing.

In an exclusive interview with Fotophreak Magazine, the main organizers of the event; Byron Oreyo, Catherine Mumo and Silas Omenda expressed their thanksgiving and gratefulness for all the stakeholders who came on board to support them and made the event a success.

However, they also were keen to note the drawbacks and challenges that face entrepreneurs in the fashion business and especially looking at their journey from when they started and how far they have come. They also expressed optimism in Hon. Ambassador Amina Mohammed who was newly appointed as the Cabinet Secretary for Sports, Art and Culture that she will carry the mantle with honor and deliver for the creatives in this industry. The event was being hosted by Miss Tanzania, the beautiful Diana Edward Loi.
