Hello Happy Wednesday! Here's some more pictures from my NYC trip! I love NYC this city has the best spots to take some great shots!

Being Kenyan has allowed to view culture and fashion with different eyes. I would remember my mom wearing these puffy African sleeve dresses and thinking "she looks ridiculous". As I have gotten older, I appreciate my culture especially the food and fashion. 

It's ironic, I'm in the process of making an modern African line called APAR. Which means 10 in my Luo tribe, As women we wear things that makes us feel good like a 10. In coming up with the name was easy, but making garments that are wearable is another. I decided to research different trends that could be translated into wearable African apparel. I wanted to create this line that is true to my culture and heart. I hope that as I grow as a fashion designer you can love this brand as much as I do! 

When I went to NYC, I made this A-line African skirt from my APAR line with a matching clutch bag!  This skirt is all about the modern day women, but a cool yet lady-like aesthetic. Definitely, check out more updates on my Etsy shop here

  2. I am Filipino, and our native attire called Filipinianan has puffy sleeves on the gowns as well. I've always loved that though! That is a wonderful skirt. The blue hues in this outfit are striking! Great job and good luck on your fashion line!

    Wish I had talked to you at BlvdofChic!
