Tribal Chic 2019 – Celebrating 10 Years, Dec. 7 2019 @ Tribe Hotel


Date: Saturday, December 7, 2019
Venue: Tribe Hotel Kenya
Time: 7 pm
Tickets: Advance Tickets KES 7,000/- (available, here), and KES 8,000/- at the Door

TRIBAL CHIC 2019
Tribal Chic is an annual charity fashion show held at Nairobi’s most prestigious 5 star boutique hotel – Tribe.

With its unique architecture and inspiring interiors, Tribe echoes the true image of Nairobi; a hip, dazzling, sophisticated and creative city. Tribe’s events showcase only the best local and international talent, while supporting causes that enrich the lives of the less fortunate.

Tribal Chic 2019 will be the 10th annual fashion show held at the hotel and is aimed at recognising and appreciating fashion both locally and internationally. We look at giving up and coming local designers a chance at showcasing their talent as well as combining it with established designers. In the past we have worked with Masaba Gupta, Adele Dejak, Penny Winter, Mille Collines, Nike Kondakis, Mateene Kahindo, Katungulu Mwendwa, Lalesso, Deepa Dosaja, to name just a few.

Our show has grown tremendously over the years and we have partnered with organizations like the New York based company – GenArt and FA254. We received a great amount of both local and international press and recognition.

As we celebrate our ten-year milestone, we hope to curate a show that takes the city by storm.

All funds from Tribal Chic 2019 are in aid of Rafiki Mwema.

About
TNR Trust, a registered Trust in Kenya, was established in 2015 following growing concerns over the stray dog and cat population in regards to animal welfare, disease control and population management.

The Trust aims to combine education on rabies and animal welfare with affordable rabies vaccinations and spay/neutering. This will curb the burgeoning dog and cat population and reduce the spread of the fatal disease rabies. This will, in turn, reduce the human mortality rate and improve community health.

Sitawa Namwalie is exploring the many ways of telling stories. She is a poet, playwright and performer. She wrote “Cut off My Tongue” (2008), “Homecoming” (2011), and “Silence is a Woman” (2014) which won Kenya’s Sanaa Theatre Awards Best Spoken Word and Poetry in the same year. Her second play “Room of Lost Names” has been performed to critical and popular acclaim at the Kampala International Theatre Festival and Ubumuntu Arts Festival Kigali.

Aleya Kassam is a Kenyan reader, writer and performer. She has been published in Jalada, Mail and Guardian Africa. She blogs her musings at http://www.chanyado.wordpress.com, which was nominated for Best New Blog at the Blog Awards Kenya 2015. She has performed in ‘Stories from the Mall: A Westgate Memorial’, and acclaimed shows ‘Silence is a Woman’ and ‘Cut off my Tongue’ amongst others.
