I love what I do because through it I’ve been privileged to meet amazing souls that bore deep into my heart. One of those people is the stylish legal student and bespoke designer, Ken Mutua of Mance Apparel.
I did feature him last year on the #DOTW segment. You can sample it here.
Recycling is the process of converting waste materials into reusable objects to prevent waste of potentially useful materials, reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, energy usage, air pollution (from incineration) and water pollution (from landfilling) by decreasing the need for “conventional” waste disposal and lowering greenhouse gas emissions compared to plastic production. Recycling is a key component of modern waste reduction and is the third component of the “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle” waste hierarchy.
Ideally, a recycled item is supposed to give you a fresh supply of the same material but as explained above, one can opt to reuse instead of developing a similar product and that’s exactly how we went about this.
I feel like I should reintroduce myself lest I become a stranger. Anyway, been really busy with work. This year I wanted to put more focus on my styling job and building my brand as a fashion stylist and it’s been crazy. But y’all know this is home and no matter how long I stay away, I must always come back.
Sometime last month I got a call from the editor of Salon Solutions Magazine asking me if I could come on board and style the cover model for their February issue.
Either we have really cool, impressionable designers here in Kenya or I’m the one who is always lucky enough to interact with them. How I came to know of Ken is when one day I was in need of a male designer for an outfit and Bryan Emry, fellow stylist, recommended him to me.
I called him up, we talked, met and just hit it off from then henceforth.
I’m always amazed by how life is. You meet someone, you connect, at that point you are both kinda trying to find your footing on your career paths then a few days, weeks, months, years down the line, you meet this person again and they are literally making headlines. That just blows my mind away.
