DRESSING FOR THE RAIN


By Musa Bwanali The most exciting season to dress up is summer, and with summer come the rains. While we’re singing praises for the much needed downpour, dressing up on a rainy day can be such a drag.  A big part of being “stylish” is dressing appropriate for the situation, and the weather.

Fashion likes Fitness


By Paul Bako When you feel good you look good. Fitness will take your fashion game to the next level and the beauty of it is you do not have to do much to achieve that goal, so grant your fashion a friend in fitness.

It is something everybody knows but few talk about and even less can marry it ...

FESTIVE SEASON FASHION: MEN


By Paul Bako The Christmas season is here and that means a variety of parties to attend.

Summer Fabric Guide.


By Musa Bwanali When dressing up in summer, the fabric of the garment is as important (if not more) as the design. The wrong type of fabric will have you sweaty and uncomfortable in no time as some tend to trap heat by providing an insulating layer over the skin.

Fashion Crimes: Underwear


Musa Bwanali As I stood in line waiting to be served at a local supermarket the other day, I noticed a lady two queues down wearing a beautiful summer dress. The curious cat in me was hoping the queue would move a little faster so I would be able to compliment her and of course ask her where she bought the dress (you would have too, so please don’t judge me). With one more person in front of me, she was served, and as she walked toward our till I was ...
