The Concord Hotel and Suites will host Nairobi Fashion Week’s fourth season, called “Mama Afrika,” on November 26.

Every 1900 to 2200 hours on both days, six designers from various nations, including the Netherlands, will present their original works.
I’m thrilled to reveal this year’s display.

Nairobi Fashion Week will present the newest collections for the season at Sarit Expo Center in November as it returns after a four-year hiatus.
From November 25 to November 27, 25 designers will present their newest offerings.
The countries they hail from include Kenya, South Africa, Togo, Benin, the United States, Nigeria, Ghana, Angola, Zimbabwe, Namibia, the Ivory Coast, and Switzerland.

As we constantly strive to accomplish more and provide both our clients and guests with satisfying entertainment, it will be better than the last. According to Joseph Brian, the founder of NFW, we have five designers from Kenya this year, the others are from Africa, and one is from the Netherlands.

Pop-up exhibitions will also be part of the two-day event, allowing visitors to meet designers and exhibitors before the show at any time.

Since NFW’s beginning in 2013, this year has marked the sixth season.
NFW has established itself as a welcoming environment over the years for both aspiring and established designers as well as fashion fans, according to founder and creative director James Brian.

In order to establish an ecosystem between stockists and designers, he said, “our objective is to promote Nairobi as a fashion district in Africa.”

With a variety of culturally inspired content from Kenya and beyond on exhibit under the adaptable topic “Blueprint,” this year’s event will guarantee a global place.

According to Brian, the theme aims to vividly depict the cultural landmarks and experiences of the designers through their unique works.

“A stunning collection of themes-appropriate designs will be displayed. The occasion offers elegance with meaning.
The fashion, art, textile, and industrial industries will all be impacted in addition to providing a fertile environment for vocations to flourish.”
Chema Chetu Leather’s Eva Wanjiru, a Kenyan designer, expressed excitement for the exhibit.

“I’m meeting other designers for the first time, and I’m looking forward to doing the same for other fashion fans.”
A portion of the money made from the sale of tickets for Nairobi Fashion Week will go toward helping people with oesophageal cancer.

The Kenyatta University Teaching, Research, and Referral Hospital Cancer Center will ensure that we have a good impact on the community, according to Brian.
