"You are the future of this industry not the big fashion brands you hear of today. You are the ones who will put Kenyan fashion on the map but in order to do that, you all need to work together as Brand Kenya.

So for the sake of Brand Kenya, let us put our differences aside and learn to work together."

I do hope this is about to change.

I have personally received so much love and acceptance from Kenyan bloggers and I appreciate it. It’s nice to know that fellow Africans in the fashion industry can support each other and cheer each other on. It says something about Kenyans.
