On 25 November 2016 designer Mariana Zinga showed her collection at the Nairobi Fashion Week in Kenya.
She asked me if I would like to be at the preparation day for the Nairobi Fashion Week. The whole day would be about capturing moments for the fashion week in Kenya. In this blog post I bring you to that day. It was a splendid day of shootings, recording, a video interview with the designer and having a blast of a time at the beautiful Royal Tropical Institute in Amsterdam.
Designer Mariana Zinga from Angola is an ambitious young woman I met at Miss Black Hair NL 2016. The models were wearing her skirts in the first round of that event.
Later on we met again at the Westcord Fashion Hotel in Amsterdam where she exhibited a suit that represented love and peace.
And then she got that call if she wanted to be part of the Nairobi Fashion Week and she did. She chose the Royal Tropical Institute in Amsterdam for a fashion shoot with the apparel she showed at the Nairobi Fashion Week.
