The Beautiful Ms. Shala Monroque in a shoot for Vogue Japan! Very elegant, very classy, fun filled and what I love about it all is the natural make up! Makes me want to book a holiday in the beautiful Carribean Islands somewhere!

SFW: WINNING STALL: ESKADO BIRD


So Eskado Bird won the award for the best stall! It was nicely laid out like a little boutique where you'd love to look at everything! Congrats Eskado!

SFW 3: ZAMDA GEORGE

High Slits, Neck Details were the staple of the collection. Zaidi Collection as my very good friend Zamda G likes to call it has given you just a bit 'more'

SFW 3: TAIBO BACAR

This was my favourite favourite collection, of the night! It was suede and leather perfection! Just see after the jump for yourself

SFW 3: PATRICIA MBELA

A very sexy  and lustrous collection fully with whips and all! very interesting!
I loved the necklaces!



SFW 3: GABRIEL MOLLEL


This collection, I absolutely want the mens trousers for myself! They are so funky comfortable and colourful! I want, I want, I want!

SFW DAY 3: CATHY KAMTHUNZI

SFW DAY 3: Ailinda Sawe

Day 3 was a vibrant day, set up was so great for a catwalk as it allowed you to be up close with the clothes. My only disappointment was that it was so packed that there were no sits and it was extremely hot. But I wasn't so disappointed to stand with the photographers as I got to see closer (dispite my feet being not so happy). I chose the designs I really adored of the day!

Another designer that I favoured more of the men wear than the women's wear is Ailinda Sawe

SFW 2 : ESKADO BIRD




The designer in the middle

And the winner is, Miss Doreen Estazia Noni! Woohoo! So our vote counted, she won emerging designer award and the most impressive stall award. Her collection was trendsetting rather than copied from what's already around. The finishing was excellent, and the collection is ready for orders : ) it included layering and large pockets, a very funky and edgy collection! We love it Miss Bird!

SFW 2: SONU SHARMA



From this collection, i loved these two especially the above harem trousers.

SFW 2: SAFFRON

My Favourite Model of the show


Saffron theme was yellow and black, yet another ready to wear collection

SFW 2: MANJU MSITA

This model won, male model of the year award
Manju Msita actually had women's wear too but I loved his sharpness on the mens wear

SFW 2: MADE BY AFRICA



Another one of my favourites of the night, a collection called Safari! It seems many designers wanted wearable collections. I could see myself buying a lot of these! Earth tones were dominant with a hint animal prints.

SFW 2: FRANKOO DESIGNS


The designer

The collection was edgy, it seemed frills were the main focus of the collection. Very well executed!

SFW 2: HOUSE OF ZIRIAN



One of my favourites for the night, a nicely put together collection by the Ugandan designer. I absolutely loved each piece.

SFW 2: KI2


The designer

Ki2 designs were actually quite nicely put together. Her Tie and dye combination of colours and those necklaces were just gorgeous

SFW Day 2: KEMI KALIKAWE


The very bubbly and lovely Miss Kemi's line consisted of lace and kitenge materials, it was a lovely wearable mix. I fell in love with the jewellery. Kemi's show actually started with a THT dancer in the background which was pretty artistic and exciting. Keep it up Kemi!

SWAHILI FASHION WEEK DAY 1

Sorry guys, I actually have not gone MIA but rather been busy with work and at night going to SFW. First day had a great vibe despite minor hitches (rain stopped the show for a bit). I was impressed by fellow boutique owner's collection, KIKI'S FASHIONs on this first day. Great work, checkout pictures. Sorry I forgot my camera so had to use my iPhone. I went with my beautiful mama and who was invited by EVE's collection. It was lovely spending time with mama and sat with Mustafa Hassan Ali whose actually quite a fun person. Got little insights that added to my enjoying the event. The Models are from Kenya, uganda, Zambia, Botswana and Sudan. I absolutely fell in love with this dark Sudanese Model, whose catwalk was perfect. Didn't quite get her name will get it tonight when I attend the last day of SFW. Anyway Enjoy:

When you enter the building, you are welcomed with stalls of different shops and designers selling their items. Others being intervied, flashing everywhere! Great atmosphere as a whole!
