Last Saturday afternoon, my friend Ninda and I decided to head over to the Nairobi Fashion Market to ‘see’ what goes on there. And see we saw. We saw a bevy of beauties and lots of lovely outfits and bags. And shoes and jewelry.
With my lens, I captured the ladies and the outfits that caught my eye, and I share them with you below. But first, let me give my fashion mwitu analysis of my observations. I noticed that there were lots of ladies baring their mid-riffs. In my days we called them ‘tumbo-cuts‘, I don’t know what they are called nowadays. There was also lots of lace outfits -especially the tops, most of which were black in color. The ladies then had black bra’s underneath and that’s it. To pull that off trust me you need to have NO pot.
I also noticed that there were lots of kitenge skirts -the ones with a fat waist band. Some of them were long while some of them were short skirts. Interestingly, many of the ladies who wore these skirts did so with sneakers. That’s a new trend I guess?
So anyway, enjoy the photos.
It was a nice event, full of lots of beautiful ladies, some men, a good band, some good food, some warm coffee and some good laughs with my friend Ninda. Definitely an event that was worth my time :). See a few more photos on the Mummy Tales Facebook page here.
It was fun Maryanne. It was great seeing you there, thanks for being such a fan of Chefammel.
Anytime Juliet. Your work speaks for itself. Best wishes.
Lol. Maryanne..I love that part for lots of beautiful ladies and some men.
I felt so bad missing out.
I hope ill catch up with it next time
Ahhhh Ruth I’ll sure drag you along next time!
An afternoon well spent! Thanks Maryanne 🙂 Madonna wore crop tops in the 80’s in her music videos and in the 90’s Britney Spears rocked them. A decade after and the trend has made a major come back. On the other hand, sneakers were trending last year even on the runways however, this year the sneaker trend died out. Guess its still going strong here in Kenya. Lol.
