The Way I See It,we should boost more of African designs through many events like this awesome Kenya Fashion Awards;by appreciating and applauding African Fashion.We have a rich culture in terms of fashion and design.While i am at it,i give a big thumbs up to Galina Tatarinova and her team for organizing and bringing together designers and the public to celebrate our rich African Fashion Culture.In addition i applaud Diana Opoti for supporting African designs through her campaign #100 days of African Fashion.
