Nairobi’s Fashion High Tea (#FHT2016) event has come and gone but the fashion statements made are here to stay! I couldn’t help myself the entire time as I ooohed and aaawwed at the different looks around me.
From fascinators to custom-made outfits , you name it and it was there! This was my first time attending a #FHT event and I can honestly give you my opinion for those that might want to consider attending next years event.
Firstly, the food and bar layout was flawless, I couldn’t pin point what I thought could have worked better as they spread it out the best way they could. The shop stalls were located inside their dining room area (cool and airy to try on clothes if you wished) again no complaints.
However the one thing I can honestly say is that the main runway event lacked a variety of looks. One after another, the designers mainly consisted of Indian fashion designers accompanied by a few African designers. Please don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love Indian cultural and indo-western fashion (with the beautiful display of colour and designs), but literally no western contemporary modern stores or designers that line our malls and everyday life were present. I would have loved to see more variety in that sense.
That is the only part I could really comment on from a whole day and night event (which in my opinion is definitely worth noting).
Anyway back to the fashion aspect, here are a few looks that I loved from the #FTH2016 event;
