Kenya is one of the countries in Africa who’s citizens are famed for their sense of fashion and impeccable styles in the world of fashion.
We have some of the biggest fashionistas in the continent, who have redefined the meaning of fashion and style in an African context.
Some of them are not fashion icons per se, they have propelled the Kenyan fashion industry with their elegant sense of style, always impressing on the red carpet with eye-catching outfits, be it casual, Ankara, suits or just classy evening gowns.
Some of Kenya’s top fashion icons include; Diana Opoti, Ann Mcreath and her daughter, Iona Mcreath, Brian Babu,, Laura Lwala, Wambui Mukenyi, Nick Ondu, Valerie Nyamwaya, Esther Mundia, John Kaveke, Evelyne Adongo and more.
Away from the fashionistas, we also have some Kenyan celebrities who are listed as the best dressed, both female and male, but that is debatable and depends on the occasion, event and taste.
But now, the Abryanz Style & Fashion Awards 2016 are finally here and from the much-anticipated event, we will be able to see who got nominated in the various categories.
