DESTINATION: Kenya

Posted on in Blog by Mataano

On a recent trip to Nairobi, Kenya to visit family, we took some time to see what the rest of the country had to offer. Kenya is a place of startling beauty and it was a tough choice between visiting the desert lakes around the cradle of civilization in the north, the volcanic Rift Valley or the wide open plains of the Maasai Mara. Ultimately, we chose to visit the coastline and headed to a small sleepy town called Malindi.

Say what you like about Lagos – chaotic, frenzied, disorganised, sometimes hazardous, but at least it causes a reaction. True, it’s loud, the traffic can be relentless, and with its bursting-at-the-seams population, the city can feel like one big generator-charged hustle. Lagos is also as addictive as caffeine. So when we got invited to the second annual Arise Fashion Week Nigeria, we packed our bags for a week filled with fashion and fun.

We ventured to this stunning corner of Africa. Invited to participate in the 2014 Hub of Africa Fashion Week, for our second time, we were excited to visit Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and continue exploring the country, people and culture we fell in love with on our first visit. One of the oldest cultures in the world, Ethiopia is a warm and welcoming land defined by its rich cultural traditions, ancient ruins and ubiquitous natural beauty.

There’s a certain je ne sais quoi about Yagazie that inspires us to create clothes that, well, capture that indefinable cool trait of hers.
