    Thank you very much for covering us!

    I was interested to see that you are a Fair Trade boutique, as we have been in fair trade since 1996, in fact I set up KikoRomeo as I was fed up with aid work & wanted to use my profession to do trade not aid. Norbert left KikoRomeo at the end of June to start his own line Norbert Ochieng, but I hadn’t updated the website yet – sorry!

    Also Hebret (Kooroo) and I are both on the board of FAFA http://www.fafakenya.org which we set up during the post election violence. We just concluded a fantastic Emerging Designers show under the banner “FAFA Insight” and plan to have another of our big galas “Fashion for Peace” on 17th November in Nairobi. Please see that website for what else is happening in fashion in Kenya.

    Thank you again,
    Ann

      Hi Ann,

      Thank you for letting us know about the changes that you have had at KikoRomeo. We are really excited and happy about the work that you do. Sitting in the US, we are really happy to see the great work and progress that is going on in Africa. We look forward to truly being able to participate fully in the work that is going on on the continent. Please keep up the good work and we will follow what you are doing with FAFA as well.

      Regards,
      Liliane
