Sally Karago will be displaying her ware as well. Sally is both Chairlady of the Association of Fashion Designers of Kenya (AFAD) and director of the Mcensal School of Fashion.

The evening will kick off with a gourmet four-course dinner with delicacies such as Smoked Salmon Caviar, Sous Vide Beef Fillet and the Signature Decadent Chocolate Dome. As the evening evolves, Mochez models will take to the catwalk in designs from the latest collections of Kenyan clothing and accessory designers. From 11.30am, many more designers will be open to the public with their pop-up shops, and to the event guests throughout the evening.

Part of the ticket sales will go to the Human Needs Project in Kibera, whose objective is to provide basic services (laundry services, showers, clean drinking water, toilets, high-speed internet and classrooms) to Kibera residents. Almost a quarter million people have used the facilities to date. The Kibera residents will be represented by young music artists who will be performing on this occasion. Their music ranges from R&B, Hip Hop to Reggae, expressing the struggles of life.
