The Nairobi Fashion Week is the first ever of its kind, an fashion affair to be held on the 23rd to the 25th of August which seeks to celebrate the immense creative talent being nurtured in Africa through the fusion of a number of local Fashion Designers, Sponsors, Models, Publicists, Stylists, Models, The media, Exhibitors, Marketers, fashion bloggers and key industry stakeholders and fashion consumers from across the region and beyond as we sample and showcase the very best from East Africa's fashion hub, Nairobi to the rest of the globe. Our vision is to bring creativity and innovation to fashion and forecast the future of African fashion and synergize Kenya into the fashion world. It is a fashion incubation that brings together Fashion Designers, Sponsors, Models, Publicists, Stylists, Models, The media, Exhibitors, Marketers, fashion bloggers and key industry stakeholders and fashion consumers from across the region and beyond as we sample and showcase the very best from East Africa's fashion hub, Nairobi to the rest of the globe.The Nairobi Fashion Week proves to be more than just a glamorous event as we are in liaison with the charity initiative, The Lance Foundation. This is an initiative which seeks to support throat cancer patients through funding their treatment and we are more than honoured to be facilitating the treatment of three patients through this event. Here is how it works; a fraction of every ticket will be preceded towards The Lance Foundation. For example, from a regular ticket costing Kshs. 1,500/=, Kshs. 500/= will be donated to the charity initiative. A VIP ticket costing Kshs. 4,000 /= will contribute Kshs. 700/= to the same.
The Nairobi Fashion Week will hold its gala night on the 23rd of August which will be the opening night of the 3 day extravaganza at the Hilton Hotel, Nairobi, Kenya. This evening will feature household names such as Enzie Porter, Hers by Hellinah Design, Bessy Bugo Jewelries, Kyoko Musemu, Atsenga Kreations, Naomy Design and Gonzala Leather. The following day, 24th day of August 2013, will showcase the best of Shenu Hooda, Atsabina, Afro Street Collection, Vaishali Creations, Severine Devaily and Zambarau accessories. Then after will be the Finale Night on the 25th of August which will mark the end of this auspicious fashion adventure.
