On the run up to the 2nd edition of the fast growing Swahili Fashion Week & Awards. The organiser have just revealed the nominees and designers to showcase on the day. From the looks of things, you should definitely expect a weekend of extreme creativity and hopefully accompanied with credible award decision. The Swahili Fashion Week is a great initiative for Tanzania and a great chance to expose its culture. Let’s not forget this is the home country of rising star Flavia Matata, the 5ft7/8 model who has managed to compete with the likes of many international stars. With the development of Swahili Fashion Week, the next Flavia could possibly be spotted right here on this runway.

But even more exciting are the designers set to exhibit. Just view this juicy schedule right here.
