Where does she shop: shop 69, woolworths, Identity.
Fashion Icon: Tyra Banks
Our take: On asking Maxdollin her occupation and she mentioned model we thought it's pretty obvious I mean look at her! but when she went ahead to say she was a mum we were completely thrown off seriously how many mum's do you know that can still work it like her? The jumpsuit was harem with green print and her luminous heels were just on point...kudos Maxdollin looking great!
Fashion Inspiration: Naomi Campbell
Where does she shop: westgate, gigiri boutiques.
Our Take: Erica gave off this Chanel Iman vibe fresh faced,tall, lean with serious presence. She's the kind of girl who doesn't need much to make a statement believe it or not in a room filled with well dressed fashion models Erica stood out in her simple Tee, black leggings and wedges. Less is definitely more when you look like this.
Hey Freddie!(The latest Uhidaya crew member) smiling it up with Avril..
Sheila Amolo(centre) was one of the designers present..By the way she has dressed Ciku Muiruri of classic f.m and a ton of other celebs.
this fab bubble skirt with edgy zippers definitely stood out!
one-shoulder has been in since last year and we saw the black off-shoulder jumpsuit with gathers at the middle to cover up a pot belly.
Who said sweaters are boring?check out the middle piece that has scrunchies on the shoulder cute right?
a cute little floral dress thats also one shouldered...great if you have the legs for it
You can get there stuff at
Westlands Mansions, Shop No. 109

Nairobi Fashion Market was the name of the event that took place last weekend at the Impala grounds. The uhidaya team was on site and location to be a part of Nairobi's fashion savvy crowd. The event was graced by fashion designers from all over who displayed their designs and sold them at discounted prices.
Celebrities we spotted;
Isn't she a dream!!Grace Makosewe ofcourse(centre) with the uhidaya team! she is wait for it...the fashion editor of True Love magazine, the lady responsible for setting the fashion climate in Kenya. We were literally star struck! I mean its not everyday you get to meet your icon so for what it was worth we had to take a picture with her .
Name: Rachel Shaban
What Inspired her Outfit: She wanted to flaunt her best assets which are her long beautiful legs and a bit of cleavage.
Fashion Inspiration: Victoria Beckham and Orie Rogo Manduli.
Where does she shop: Everywhere.
Our Take: Rachel legs have got some serious game and she sure knows how to show them off. What we loved the most about her outfit was how her best assets were on display now ladies a little booby here and there aint never hurt nobody!
Name: Julia Thitai
Fashion Inspiration: Herself
Where does she shop: Elegant
Our take: When I first saw Julia the song 'DIVA' kept playing in my head like a scratched record. Her black jumpsuit which she paired with not just one but two cinch waist belts(black and brown) and her carroty heels all blended in to an ensemble that screamed high maintenance. Oh and by the way Julia owns her own fashion line called Afrifabb fashions.
Fashion inspiration: Herself and long time bff Julia.
Where does she shop: Everywhere and anywhere as long as its grabs my attention.
Our take: It was not surprising to learn that Ingrid owns her own fashion line named Fatasha gridd collection her bold choice of colour is something only someone with an eye for fashion would comfortably rock!
Name: Lucy Weke
Fashion Inspiration: Her fashion designer friend Ingrid.
Where does she shop: All around town.
Our take: White is such an innocent colour thats very chic and we love how she played it up with a sash of pink around the waistline and her baby blue heels oh and her african beads beautiful...
Verdict: Adorable huh?
We just had to get a picture of the three i'd like to call this a fuse of sassy, sexy and the all white chic. Looking beautiful ladies!
