I was so excited when I found out that Red Velvet was just chocolate with a dash of colour that I decided to try out this look. I picked a red velvet/silky blouse from my mother’s closet (technically my closet which she hijacked) and paired it with a black and white plaid skirt.
I also incorporated my current favorite red sandal heels into the mix.
How did I do?
This was a very special shoot for me as it was my first official shoot in the motherland, plus we shot in the Nairobi CBD! It was such an interesting experience, from the strange glares from pedestrians passing by to interruptions from a drunk homeless person. I can definitely say it was the authentic Nairobi experience. However I would advise any one looking to shoot in the CBD to shoot over the weekend. Lets hope that Sonko come through for creatives in easing the photography restrictions.
I am looking forward to shooting across different locations in the city over the next month.
