|Mock Poster for the event|
I have to say I am truly humbled and honored beyond by the opportunities that are coming Runway254’s way. Everyone with a first, a second or a continuity wants to work with(this is where and I pull a religious one and say all Glory and honor belong to He who began this good work in me and I know He will be faithful to complete it not just for me but for all the amazing designers and models under Runway254.)
I met with Sospeter a lovely lad from Strathmore who is also part of the organizing committee of the inaugural Strathmore Cultural Festival and Mr & Ms Strathmore yesterday after him trying to trace me and my hectic last week. So he briefed me on what they are working on and since the committee will be busy with the whole cultural week, they would like Runway254 to assist in the exhibition and on the Dday, Mr & Ms Strathmore.
As much as I have a list of designers I have worked with, I like opening doors to even more people to showcased their talent, network and meet potential clients. Maybe it is all the kind words from the models interviewed this week but it is truly humbling to that you set out to feed one family and a whole village benefits.
It is to this regard that I do an open call for designers, stockists, makeup artists, stylists. There will be NO need for models as the event is for the school and the winners/participants ought to be students at Strathmore and registered to take part through calls done in the school earlier.
The event will take place on Nov 26th at Bomas of Kenya and the following categories will be judged
- - Casual Smart
- - Office wear
- - Creative
- - Evening wear
There will be 14 models, 7 male and 7 female whose sizes will be available by the 10th of November.
