SWAHILI FASHION WEEK HEADING TO KENYA
(Posted 13th February 2014)
East Africa’s most successful fashion festival, the Swahili Fashion Week, is preparing to make a full appearance in Kenya as a mainstream event, starting from the 05th of April this year. Mustafa Hassanali’s erstwhile vision, which resulted in the first Swahili Fashion Week to be launched in 2008 in Dar es Salaam, has now established itself as the region’s foremost fashion and accessories event giving local designers a platform to showcase their creations and make a name for themselves in the international arena.
While the venue and programme are still to be announced, the SFW organizers have set a deadline for applications by Kenyan designers to send in their particulars by the 28th of February to designers or use their website www.swahilifashionweek.com to download the relevant forms.
Expect to hear more about this event in coming weeks as the programme takes shape and the lineup of designers and models is made public.
