SWAHILI FASHION WEEK: NAIROBI SHOWCASE BEHIND THE SCENE

Last weekend Was Swahili Fashion week, NAirobi Showcase, At the Micheal Joseph Centre.
I got to the venue at about 6:30pm, 1.5hrs before the show, so I could chat up the designers and take some pictures.
There was a lot of hustle and bustle and the occasional “EVERYBODY LISTEN UP!!” going on back there. I could tell the models and designers were excited about the show as they were busy trying to do last minute fittings. The energy back there was palpable and everybody seemed so engrossed in what they were doing that I almost felt invisible! I could snap up any picture and no one really asked questions.
But even despite all the exciting chaos, whenever I’d approach a designer to ask a few questions about their line or a certain piece, they would always be so warm and patient with me.
And let me not even start with the gorgeous models and their fabulous poses. They too would be so patient whenever I asked to take their picture!
It was really awesome, hope these pictures are able to take you backstage with me. 

 I think this lady is gorgeous. I mean,  GAW-JUS.

 So just to give you a little background info on SFW, it was founded by a Tanzanian named Mustafa Hassanali and it’s been running annually since 2008. This was its debut in Kenya with a total of 16 designers showcasing their work - most were from Kenya but some were from Tanzania. Besides Tanzania and now Kenya, the event is also held in Zanzibar and it’s said to be the largest fashion show in East and Central Africa!
