Fashion After Dark at Skyluxx

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

The much hyped Fashion event in Nairobi that wasn't all that....I was so excited to attend F.A.D last week on Friday.I knew it would be glamorous and of course i would have a chance to interact with  Kenyan designers,fashion bloggers but shock on me..it turned out to be the complete opposite.



"Fashion 2DIE4 is proud to be part of 'Fashion After Dark'. Are you a local designer, blogger, model, stylist, have your own tumblr, photographer, digital designer, music-based group, choreographer, accessory designer, have your own company...ANYTHING??? Comment here or email us: advertise@2die4trends.com, and your name and work will be showing on the screens at SKYLUX LOUNGE this February 17th at ...the Masquerade Party.....FOR FREE!!!! This will probably be the biggest FASHIONISTA'S event all year!
Lots of press coverage, so this might be the breakthrough you've always wanted. :) we won't discriminate. Anyone and everyone will be listed!"


How come you did not advertise the bloggers,digital designers,photographers as you promised??I din't get to see anything being advertised on Skylux's screen...... And don't get me started on the masquerades that you were giving "fashionistas" at the entrance...what was that??ummmm.. the red carpet photo shoot ,where was it coz i din notice that..From my point of view Fashion After Dark was just an ordinary clubbing night,where the ladies and the guyz wore their usual partying outfits.Fashionistas could be hand picked,they were very few.
Am hopping the Next Fashion Event i go to will be worth my time & money!


Fashion 2 die 4,am sure you will do better next time but  don't get me wrong  these are just  my thoughts from a Fashion Blogger point of view.

Reknowned African Fashion Designers From Kenya

Thursday, February 9, 2012


They ooze creativity,Swag,uniqueness,intelligence,popularity and they be drop dead gorgeous their designs and fashion sense is to die for and these African designers aint no other than Blackbird Jeans.I remember the instant i saw their pieces on AFWNY i couldnt help but be dazzled,they made me more  proud to be Kenyan.I almost went insane when i saw their designs on the Runway,I was totally  impressed.

I recently had a chance to hook up with Zeddie for more of a chit chat than an Interview,he is one of the Duo together with Syd who make up  BlackBird Jeans.For the first time they had a chance to showcase their designs on the African Fashion Week New York which was Held in July 2011'.

Zeddy and Sydney


A brief Insight on Blackbird and how it came about is that they started designing way back in High School.Zeddy and Syd were in the same High School.This clearly shows that what they got is an inborn talent.I could tell that they have passion for what they do....u should see Zeddy talk about African Fashion and his experience in New York.One word it was FANTASTIC they got exposed to different fashion cultures not only from Africa but also international.
