If you have FAFA in your calendar as the event to attend this end of May, you are we dare predict, going to have a worthwhile experience. Whether it is your first FAFA gala or not, your number one reason for gracing the occasion is none other than our favourite F-word: FASHION. The Festival for African Fashion & Arts (FAFA) : Fashion for Peace is a gala dinner and show of top Kenyan fashion brands together with regional or Pan-African guest designers.

What is our take on this year’s list of participating designers? To answer this we may have to give a small commentary on fashion in Kenya over the years. Where the fashion industry in Kenya is right now, how far we have come and where it is heading? Indulge us, and try and remember any designers that have been in the limelight since ten or say twenty years ago. KikoRomeo just turned 18 years this month but how many more could you list? If I narrowed the figure to five years, an average Kenyan would still not be able to count too many household names in the fashion and design industry. John Kaveke would be another name you are likely to hear but the truth is even in these times that access to information is easier than ever only a few Kenyans are acquainted with their very own designers’ brands.
