Last week we shot the DRUM Magazine fashion editorial for March. We shot at the SANDSTORM factory in Karen, Nairobi, where premium-quality leather bags are hand-made and dispatched across the world to discerning customers. Just this week, Malaika Firth of VOGUE supermodel fame was seen toting her Sandstorm bag around en route to London Fashion Week.
So to go with the #MadeinKenya ethos of SANDSTORM, we used a mere handful of #MadeinKenya designers in a showcase of how accessible, viable (and edgy) local fashion really can be.
