By Sheila Kimani

Q:           What do you love about fashion?

A:            The creative trends by designers and stylists always leave me awed at how diverse fashion is.

Q:           How has being Miss Kenya influenced your style?

A:            Initially I was a staunch tomboy. Make-up and style wasn’t my thing. The process of becoming Miss Kenya definitely exposed me to style and design.

Q:           Any new fashion tricks you learnt?

A:            Of course! I must admit that by combining my designs and accessories during the competition, I learnt how to be a stylist.

Q:           So who dresses you for events?

A:            I do. My mother is always there in case I need her help.

Q:           During the Miss World finals, who do you credit as the best dressed models?

A:             I must say that Africa has the most diverse and expressive fashion. Contestants at the Miss World Academy House were impressed by the designs I wore.

Q:           So whose designs do you love rocking?

A:            Kaveke, Patricia Mbela and Ogaki. They created my initial designs as Miss Kenya and to date they still are my favourite.

Q:           Your to go outfit would be?

A:            Jeans, a cute top and a pair of comfortable flats work for me anytime.

Q:           The worst you’ve ever dressed up was?

A:            Being a tomboy, style was never my thing. However, my worst was tracksuits, which I wore almost everyday.

Q:           Your ideal guy of style would be?

A:            One who can combine both casual and official in a fashionable twist.

Q:           Fashion pieces you’d love to have are?

A:            Custom made heels and dresses especially now that I’m re-vamping my wardrobe from tomboy to fashionably classy.
