The awards, now in their third year, seek to harness the wealth of fashion talent across Kenya and East Africa. According to the organizers, the future of fashion in Kenya looks bright and is shaping up as the fashion capital of the region known for its diversity and richness in culture.

“Kenyan brands are recognized and even revered worldwide. However, several otherwise well-known brands remain unfamiliar to the public in Kenya,” they said. Mr Atman Ngau, a director of the awards, said fashion could create jobs for many young people. “Kenya Fashion Awards is raising an awareness of the importance of developing this economic sector by creating opportunities for the youth, mentoring, recognising and empowering them,” he said.
