“‎I met Shiyenze through a mutual friend. I had escorted my friend to do  fittings at Shiyenze Fashion studios when my experience with the great Shiyenze began. I was really impressed by the detailed work and her keen selection prints. I have particularly never been a huge fan of prints but this really caught my eye; Swahili Kaftan. I bought it immediately and even wore it before I left her workshop! Ever since that day, I am an ardent fan of Shiyenze outfits. I like the way she tells her story through her artwork.

When she asked me to participate in her project I was deeply excited and it didn’t even take me a minute to choose a site for the shoot. I chose an outdoor venue, and mostly a national park, because it shows the beauty of Kenya and the brand. Enjoy the look.” – Theo Mbogwa
