Dead readers,

Girls… it is the international day of the girl child and in celebration of that I need to shout out one of the most amazing talented girls I have ever met Beryl Onyancha she showed me today a beautiful level of intelligence, maturity and dedication. She inspired me beyond words and shook me to the bone, lots of love to Beryl.

On with the blog,

For this blog I collaborated with the amazing Valentine Nekesa a very talented designer, her brand is V designs and her work is beautiful. We are working on more projects and I can’t wait to share them with you!

I got this white singlet from mister price and this dress/top from V designs. My chocker is from African swaggy by Aggy This blog’s focus is mainly on the power of Africans through fashion, music and content.

This dress/top Valentine designed is symbolic to me because V breaks the cliche that is, Kenyan designers do African print clothing. Where were from should not determine what we create! Yes, it is important to acknowledge your back ground, but…

Don’t ever do anything because it’s what is expected of you or because it’s what everyone else is doing.

This shirt/dress is asymmetrical which gives it more of a kick, keeps it slightly less plain.

So how’s that for African designed… not African design?!
Later on that day… Gemma, Joseph Kinyoda and I went to Koroga festival. You can all see just how the event unfolded on the Kiara and Gemma vlog out Friday.

It was fantastic, I personally think that it was beautiful that so many people of all ethnic varieties came together to celebrate African musicians and art by Africans as a whole, we need such events, they not only promote culture but love and symbolism. (of course there are a few tweaks).

I am wearing V designs, a similar design to the first dress, this one in my point of view is very pop culture expressive… and that is what Koroga is all about.

Meeting the performers was amazing! So much talent, we were so star struck! But it was amazing that everyone gets to come together and freely be who they are and do what they do. 

People build people by appreciating their efforts.

And so that’s what my day was… Love, experience, friendship, ethnicity, originality, fashion and style.
