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 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.
