Fashion in Kenya – Fashion Designers in Kenya

Fashion Designers in Kenya

Fashion Designers in Kenya have come of age. The trends seen on the streets today were unheard of ten years ago. With the fashion world changing daily, we have had to try and catch up with the rest of the world, and this includes the fashion trend-setters who are mostly found in the capital, Nairobi. Fashion Designers in Kenya are coming up at every corner of the country, all hoping that their designs will catch the eye of a big shot in the fashion industry, hence finding themselves on the glossy pages of our fashion magazines, and thus guaranteeing themselves higher sales.

Fashion in Kenya

One may have a good piece of garment, but if accessorized wrongly, or if put on the wrong body type, may prove disastrous, thus defeating the purpose for which it was designed for. This is where the model scouts come in. These are the people who walk around in major towns looking for ladies who can work the runway with ease, who have the right body type and posture, and also possess the smile that would sell the product for which they are marketing. They also scout for talented designers whose talent is yet to be discovered and experienced.

Fashion show in Kenya as you all know is till part of modeling. This is a celebration that models showcase clothes, ornaments and jewelries from different culture.

It’s the most highly participated by models because it’s well paying. By this I mean all models participating end up getting a reward for participation. The organizers normally pay the models per show and this keep s the model moving. Compared to beauty pageant, fashion show is fair and worth the efforts. This is because when you participate in beauty pageant you spend so much money and effort but in the long run it’s only the winner who gets the prize and the rest gain nothing.
