Social events that have taken Nairobi’s entertainment industry by a storm have emerged to be fashion hot spots as fashionistas attending these events strive to outdo each other in order to stand out and better still, catch the eye of paparazzi’s and eventually appear in fashion blogs and magazines.

Apart from the traditional fashion magazines, fashion shows and TV shows that provide avenues to pick up fashion trends, local social events have joined the list as well.

Sheer clothing i.e. chiffon, lace, denim, leather and flashy colors have been the fashion craze in 2013 with the biggest events of the year being Blankets and Wine-the monthly music festival; the Mingle– the bi-monthly event that gives young professionals a platform to network over games; the Afro-Tiara fashion show; the Kenya Fashion Week, Masaku Sevens just to mention a few.

Below are pictures of fashionista’s who ‘killed’ it in 2013 events.
