Strut It Afrika Fashion Week 2014 features an S.I.A Festival for a whole month. Auditions have already been conducted in Nairobi, up next are Mombasa, Burundi, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda.
Flooding the audition ground were gorgeous damsels of different shades and color. Very popular in East Africa, yet not so well known in other parts of Africa, Strut It Afrika is a very popular fashion week that occurs in Kenya along side 3 other fashion weeks.
The Strut It Afrika Fashion Week in Nairobi is a platform that aims at highlighting rich culture through celebrating African heritage by bringing together fashion, art and dance. The Strut It Afrika Fashion Week modeling event incorporates an art exhibition in addition to the model runway shows in Kenya. The main goal of Strut It Afrika Fashion Week in Africa is to create a mobile fashion week, a modeling event that is held in a different African country every consecutive year that in turn will help in strengthening links and bonds in the African region and boost exchange of culture in terms of fashion, art and dance and thus nurture economic development.
Strut It Africa Company is one of the rapidly growing Production and modeling networks not only in Kenya but also in the East & Central Africa region. Strut It Afika was established in November 2011 by two former models – 26-year-old Moses Mukiibi and 24-year-old Malaika Nnyanzi who are both from Uganda. The idea to start the modeling company in Kenya to serve Africa at large came in 2009 after a beauty pageant stint when they came to Kenya and contested in the Mr. and Miss USIU 2009 in Kenya.
The Strut It Afrika Modeling Network offers a comprehensive answer to any client looking to have a modeling show in Africa, from the first concepts to end result. It also offers designer catwalk shows in Africa to different product launches in Kenya and Africa at large.
