#FAFA2014: BACKSTAGE PASS

….and it finally happened.

If you are wondering what I’m talking about, have a look at this. I also did a post on what to wear on the red carpet to act as a guide to the attendees here. Aurum Eve, a guest blogger I featured last week, also did something on Riri Jewellery here. On the eve of the D-day, we had a debate session with guest designers from Botswana on the state of African fashion in light of the competition from the International platform, read more on that here. Enough with the digression.

FAFA 2014-Fashion for Peace Gala finally went down this Saturday at The Oval, Westlands, Nairobi. It was the biggest fashion event of the year and it lived up to its billing. From celebrities, to corporates, sports personalities to fashion enthusiasts, they all graced the show. I was honoured to be among the bloggers and stylists chosen to help out with the event. On the D-day, my post was backstage as a Dresser. I enjoyed the thrill and adrenaline rush that came with the position and also the amazing people I interacted with.

Check out some of the backstage pics I took;
