Who lies behind the fabric?
Model cum designer Yvonne Odhiambo had an urge to start her own fashion house. This was after strutting on different runways both in Kenya and regionally for 8 years for different designers like John kaveke,Liz Ogumbo,Ann McCreath,Sylvia Owori, Nikki Kondakis , Penny Winter ,Adele D’Jak among others. From that urge, AfroStreetKollektions was born in September 2012. She has graced different fashion magazines like Couture Africa, True Love, Drum, African Woman and others.
After completing her studies in Communication at the University of Nairobi, AfroStreet Kollektions was her main focus and nothing stood in the way of her giving the best she could to everyone that knocked on her doors of fashion for the that gorgeous look they sought.
She has dressed, most notably, STL(Stella Mwangi), Sheila Mwanyigah, Suzanna Owiyo, Kidum, Vanessa Mdee, Kobi Kihara, Wahu, Diana Opoti, Annabel Onyango, The Papa Shirandula Crew and Kansiime.
“It’s an honor to have met and dressed these celebrated personalities. We have God to thank for bringing us this far.”
