Kenya has a rich history in the fashion industry, particularly clothing and textiles. This dates back to early 1900s. Our ancestors were involved in spinning, weaving and knitting. Most of us remember our great grandmothers teaching us how to knit scarfs, socks and sweaters. Tie and dye was also common. Some of the fabric was sold locally while others were exported to the international market. In 1990s, People began to notice the industry and slowly but surely, it attracted private investors. Established designers began to nurture upcoming ones and
provided a platform for them to showcase their products through organizing runways, gala dinners and awards.
