Blackfly in New York

We are proud to announce that we will be participating in the 44th International African Arts Festival in New York.

We’ll be selling our bags in up-cycled leather as well as a number of unique one-of-a-kind dresses, skirts and jackets in wax print fabric and batik.

Meet us in Commodore Barry Park in Brooklyn July 2-5.

Check out the program, and the Facebook page.

Fashion show

Blackfly participated in a charity fashion show and fair by the diplomatic spouses association at the French ambassador’s residence on the 4th of October. Our collection was inspired by the traditional clothes that the Barabaig people in Tanzania make. We also showcased our new designs, clutch bags and sleeves, which were well received.

Soko Soko

Soko is the Swahili word for market. Every year there’s an exhibition at New Muthaiga on Thigiri Ridge Road. This year Blackfly shared a stand with Mary Onyango’s brand Accessorize.I was busy with another project and overwhelmed so my friend Zoe saved the day by volunteering to take care of everything on the first day. We wouldn’t have made it without her.

Lake Magadi shoot

One day we decided to do a photo shoot; me, my niece Nicola and my friends Amanda and Kimatu. We planned to go to Lake Magadi and take pictures on the white saltpan, but we couldn’t get there so we ended up at a dead tree along a deserted tarmac road.
