Swahili Fashion Week makes me wonder what is behind that name. This event caught my attention and I didn’t hesitate to let you know. The Swahili fashion week, this year on the 4th -6th November, is regarded as the platform for designers from Swahili speaking countries. This fashion week is a combination of expressing creativity in fashion and accessories, Swahili cuisine, arts & crafts, music performance, entertainment and more. This year, many designers from East Africa gathered to make this event a successful one in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania.
Many designers showed their fined creativity at the event. Chichia London, Koroo and Asia Idarous are a few of the designers that participated in the Swahili Fashion Week. Abina is familiar with Chichia London, her style and designs.
I love the distinctive style of East Africa. Compared to the Central and West African style, they use more dark colors in their designs. This annual event is definitely something to look forward to each year.
