After a four-year hiatus, the Nairobi Fashion Week is making a comeback, bigger and better.

The Nairobi Fashion Week is set to take center stage at Sarit Expo Center from November 25th to 27th bringing together 25 designers who will showcase and launch their season’s latest collections on the runway.

This year’s event is themed “Blue Print” and will bring together budding and accomplished designers as well as a display of a variety of culturally-inspired creations from Kenya and beyond.

According to the founder and creative director James Brian, this year will mark the sixth season since the inception of Nairobi Fashion Week in 2013.

“Our focus is to position Nairobi as a fashion district in Africa and create an ecosystem between stockists and designers. Nairobi Fashion Week (NFW) has proven over the years to be an accommodating avenue for both upcoming and seasoned designers and fashion enthusiasts,” said Brian.

“It is an unstoppable fireball of glitz and glam that explores every inch of fashion from gracious and composed to fiery and bold. We are therefore delighted to bring back this outstanding occasion after a devastating period of the Covid-19 pandemic,” he added.

This year’s event will guarantee a universal space with a display of different culturally-inspired content from Kenya and beyond, under the versatile theme “Blueprint”.

“The theme seeks to bring to life the cultural journeys and milestones of the designers through their original creations. There will be a spectacular series of designs showcased to fit the theme. The event promises elegance with a purpose. Not only will it create a productive ground for careers to thrive but also aims at impacting the fashion, art, textile, and manufacturing industries.” Brian adds.

This season of Nairobi Fashion Week is expected to attract a larger audience than the previous ones where the 25 designers from Kenya, South Africa, Togo, Benin, U.S, Nigeria, Ghana, Angola, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Ivory Coast and Switzerland are set to showcase.

A share of proceeds gained from the sale of Nairobi Fashion Week tickets will be donated to support those suffering from esophageal cancer, in partnership with Kenyatta University Teaching, Research and Referral Hospital cancer center.
