The Jw show 2019 at Two Rivers Mall
The JW Show #MadeInKenyaByKenyans movement, is the leading and most popular Fashion House in Kenya, formed in a quest to showcase what Kenyan fashion has to offer connecting Kenya, Africa and The World through fabric and design.
Marking the ninth edition in a row, tonight The JW Show is opening its doors to designers, models and fashion enthusiasts to its one-of-a-kind fashion experience, showing Kenya’s leading brands such as Kelele, Elle, Aqil, Ashok Sunny, Lucy Rao among others plus also different Fashion institutions who will be competing (Nibs,Amboseli,Delight,Nairobi University,Bifa,Verabeauty.
This Show was started with a vision to offer a platform to promote what Kenya owns; what Kenya has, by incorporating the love and passion for fashion, quality, and design, together
with the Kenyan character, supporting local talent and increasing the purchase of locally made fashion designs. Over the years, the JW Show has served as a space to celebrate Kenyan designers, models and the different cultures in the Country through fashion and art in a bid curb unemployment amongst the youths in Kenya.
- Since 2013 The JW Show has supported and economically sustained over 10,000 young fashion industry players in about 26 counties across Kenyan.
- Over 80% of young industry players that have passed through the JW Show are currently running successful businesses in over 26 Counties across the Country.
- Our priority remains to promote the Made in Kenya By Kenyans initiative where we not only support young Fashion Talents but also create linkages and networking opportunities as well as capacity building through mentorship programs and local and international conferences and exhibitions.
