Hey guys, welcome back to my blog.
I am always on the lookout for local brands that I can rely on to provide quality clothing and reliable service: shopping online is just time-consuming and tiresome. Last month I came across and had the privilege of getting to work with El Afrique, courtesy of Whitney Nasanga, who I met at the Metta Meet and Mingle earlier in July.
El Afrique’s pieces are bespoke so I had to make my way to their offices (Jadala Place, Ngong Rd) to take my measurements and choose my fabrics and designs. Once at the office, I met a really nice lady who did the aforementioned activities. The difficulty came in choosing the fabric; I just wanted them all. In about 7-10 days time, my piece was ready.
I am getting more African prints in my wardrobe and El Afrique has easily become my go-to for such. A similar blazer would cost you anything between Ksh 4,500 ($45) to Ksh 5,000 ($50). Make sure to check their Instagram for more options.
Till next time, cheers!
