Kenyan Designer to Watch: KEPHA MAINA

Kepha Maina established his label by the same name in 2013. Focusing on ready-to-wear and high-fashion, he draws inspiration from visual artists such as Ibrahim el-Salahi, the renowned Sudanese painter and leading modernist figure. Kepha has had four key fashion showcases that have gotten international attention, and his next collection drops in September 2022.

He says there is a slick, angular and modernist aesthetic to the Nairobi look, which sets it apart from Africa’s other fashion capitals like Lagos. An aesthetic that he tries to represent in his designs. We are totally looking forward to his latest collection, which I am sure you will see in a Couture Africa print magazine fashion spread soon.
