Namtero Mdee

Str8 Up Presenter

Style: Very simple yet sometimes very daring.... glamorous always!

What inspires you?

My mood plays a very big role on what I wear, usually when I am in a good mood I will dress up and when I am not in a good mood I just want jeans and a Tee.

What other people are wearing also inspires me, and then I go home and tweak it to make it my own, so I could say humankind inspire my fashion sense.

Who is your style icon? Victoria Beckham, Rihanna and Blake Lively

Where do you shop?

Angelsmile who is also my stylist, Toi market, Mr Price but most of the time my stylist shops for me.

What’s your fashion don’t? It would have to be showing underwear lines and I cannot stand clear bra straps, they made strapless bras for a reason.

Annabel Onyango

Freelance fashion stylist for DRESSUPNATION

Style: Eclectic. It’s a mash-up of whatever’s trendy, vintage, ethnic, menswear, and statement jewellery. Anything goes really. I’m as much into loose harem pants and embellished shoulders as I am into vintage skinny ties.

What inspires you?

Grace Msalame

Style tips

Personal style comes before fashion trends so come up with your own style first before you decide to follow every trend out there.

Fashion don’t?

I’m not really afraid to try out something or experiment. There’s no style out there that I wouldn’t try. But I do hate ‘sandaks’ with a passion!


Style: Comfortable, yet chic... I go with the trends,

but also stick to what works for set trends; and me.

What inspires you?

Oh Boy... when I wake up in the morning the weather usually dictates what I’ll wear, but am quite a girly girl and like dressing up, so I guess my love for clothes and fashion.

Who is your style icon? Oh! that’s a hard one, I pick tips from women who just get it right and dress for their body type, which is the secret to looking good, so my list can range from Michelle Obama to Mary J to locally Somoina and my dear cousin Grace.

Where do you shop?

Everywhere! But mostly Mr. Price really, and kind family members abroad know how to hook a sister up.

Style tips?

Be Comfortable, it will automatically give you Confidence and always wear a smile to top it off!!

What’s your fashion don’t?

Fishnet stockings!!! they make me cringe!
