Color of the week- Cerulean

But what you don’t know is that that sweater is not just blue, it’s not turquoise. It’s not lapis. It’s actually cerulean. – Miranda Priestly, The Devil Wears Prada.

There is just something about this shade of blue, so bright and so alive! I have never been a big fan of any shade of blue but after wearing this skirt here I’m a convert. I’m loving the leather skirt and the ribcage jumper.

Enchanted Jungle

My fave designer Ally Remtulah showcased his 2013 collection at  Serena Hotel
To me this collection is fully functional and you don’t have to hold your breath for long periods. The colors are  basic. Red, black,gray, green, pink and white which are all favorite colors of mine. Enjoy…

Words Sylvia Abwao   Photography Emmanuel Jambo   Pictured Pedro wearing KikoRomeo

The Festival for African Fashion and Arts (FAFA) returns to Nairobi for its forth edition on November 17. Originally set up by KikoRomeo designer Ann McCreath in 2008 as a creative response to post-election violence in Kenya, the event has blossomed into the city’s major fashion event.

So much so that this year they have also launched the young talent search FAFA Insight. On June 30, 18 hopefuls showcased collections under the themed on “Rebranding Africa” and three finalists were selected to go forward and take part in FAFA – Jamil, Azra Walji and Galina Tatarinova.

“There’s never been a better time for young people in terms of access to technology, access to information and exposure to different cultures, ideologies and possibilities,” says Njuhi Chege, FAFA spokesperson. “FAFA offers a platform for them to be seen and heard on the world stage, supporting them in defining the developing their own cultures.”

Internationally successful Kenyan model Ajuma Nasenyana, who has worked with Vivienne Westwood and Marc Jacobs, will also be at FAFA to mentor the local models. “My experience has put me in a position where I can help train models to major runway standards and scout for the right looks,” Nasenyana says.
