In my last post I posted about my outfit for the Deacons Fashion Show. Today,it’s all about the event. Basically it was an opportunity for 6 stylists to express their creativity through clothes from the Deacons Stores; Woolworths, Angelo,The Baby Shop and Zara courtesy of 4U2.Ann McCreath of Kiko Romeo pointed out the fact that in Kenya the spotlight is never shed so much stylists .They are as important as the model, designer and photographer in a photo shoot. I’m glad they’re finally being recognized! The stylists were Wambui Kibue of Sunday Nation, Sunny Dolat, Wambui Thimba of Standard Newspaper, Annabel Onyango of Mnet’s ‘Mashariki Mix’ , Connie Aluoch of The Nairobian/True Love/KTN , Anyiko Owoko of KBC/UP Magazine and Eddie Kirindo of True Love and DRUM Magazines. So yeah, these were pretty distinguished stylists.I was delighted when they announced that it would be an annual event.
Well, it was better than I expected in some aspects. I thought I was gonna stand the whole time but phew, there were seats. I even came prepared with my flats and low pumps. It started an hour late but I guess if they started when they were supposed to, there really would be no crowd. I put in my name for a draw, but Juelz, the blogger I was sitting next to won! How close 😀 Their vouchers were worth 500/= ,1000/= and 5000/= . The 500 bob voucher… I doubt you can purchase anything worthwhile at deacons though. Another thing is I could see the tags on the clothes the models were wearing…uh..no! Not good. Otherwise, I enjoyed the showcase and the energetic atmosphere and I’m glad I got to meet the fashion bloggers I met.Without further ado…The photos! Today there will be a barrage of photos. Hope you’re psyched for them!
