I had the most fun yesterday you guys! KCB Rally was just the business and I’m so exhausted right now . I started my weekend( which starts on Friday 😀 ) by going to a designers’ fitting for FAFA. The designers who will be showcasing at FAFA were fitting the models . Guess what though? I reached there and to my dismay I had forgotten my camera’s memory card in my computer at home so I couldn’t really take many photos…Thank you brain…I only took four with my camera…The ones I took with my phone were so horrible and I won’t expose my readers to my phone’s less than mediocre photos 😀 It’s like getting used to gourmet food then someone gives you crappy food.
The party peoples…Kidding.These are the models…Oh and the male model in a yellow and blue tee told me he reads my blog.He’s a Winnie The Fashionista fan. Holla Lyimmo! 🙂
The fitting station…
This is THE Nick Ondu of the fashion line ”Ankara Vintage”.Incase you ain’t know,he’s the official designer for Sauti Sol.He’ll be showcasing at FAFA . You can view his work here.
