The event, which is held once every year marks a celebration of the fashion culture bringing together designers, models, vendors and fashion enthusiasts under one roof. This year saw a combination of various upcoming and well versed designers from Tanzania and Kenya to showcase their latest works. Held at the “traditional” Nairobi Railways Museum, the attendees were also treated to some good ambiance and lovely photography spots thanks to the well preserved old trains and railway tracks.

Drinks were also in plenty thanks to Martini and brew bistro who also offered vouchers that could be redeemed for free cocktails at their Ngong Road Branch later that evening at the After Party. Lots of exhibitors were also present and got an opportunity to sell off their goodies thanks to the frequent breaks in between the fashion shows by different designers.

However, speaking exclusively to Fotophreak, one of the event organizers alluded that in the future events, they are going to come up with a model that is going to give exhibitors more time and chance to interact with the event goers. He also revealed that the number of both ticket sales and merchandise sold by vendors went up tremendously this year judging from the past three events which is something commendable, reflecting a positive growth of the event.
