Most Kenyans must be familiar with Patricia Mbela she featured many times at the Kenya fashion weeek and has many awards under her belt, but here’s another reason for the rest of you to get to know fashion a little better.

Dubbed origin Africa, this show pulled all the stops to showcase the best that can be achieved using only natural material.

They did not disappoint, it was almost like fashion week; frantic, flashy and fashionable!

Ruffles: Floral and layered, it seems this style is on and bravely so. Hoodies: Hip and hot this urban inspired pieces made for great comfort and weability.

Futuristic: It is never complete without some pieces you can only use on a film set like Avatar, the black, suited messenger in rainbow wings stole the show!

Monochromatic: One colour can never mean it is all-dull.
