Last week, I received an invite for a cocktail event to celebrate the launch of Mille Collines Men’s wear store at Village Market. So I thought what a nice plot after work, being on Friday I will pop in have a look at the designs then grab a drink with my gals who had also been invited. What I didn’t know was, this was going to be a big fashion event. So before I give you details about this event; take it from me if you are invited for a fashion event in Nairobi make sure you dress up for the it! Don’t show up casually after work like I did!!!

So who is Mille Collines?

Mille Collines is a fashion brand founded in 2009 by two young Spanish designers Marc Oliver & Ines Cautrecasas. The Mille Collines menswear range was first released in South Africa at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Africa 2013. The collection offers two categories for menswear; classic silhouettes with modern twists for the business professional and a dandier edgier selection of street style inspired for the man who likes to make a statement.

Who were the main sponsors?

Martini was one of the main sponsors of the event, one of the world’s leading brands whose core values are to celebrate natural style and embody ‘Gioia di Vivere’

Congratulations Mille Collines for the launch, thanks Martini for continuing to celebrate style, Diana Opoti who made it happen, Esther from Villlage Market and Brenda from Blue Print PR for your invites

Here are some of the photos from the event; feel free to share the post with your friends who are featured in here. It was great meeting you all!!!
