Introducing Adele Dejak – Nairobi, Kenya

For the first time ever, AFI Cape Town Fashion Week, will feature and headline a jewellery and accessories designer on the main schedule.

“The brand has always been deeply interested and influenced by tribal adornment of the Maasai, Samburu, Pokot and Turkana communities.  Before the beaded adornment for which the Maasai tribe is world-famous for, they crafted their accessories using metallic. Our latest range will examine this tradition with fresh lenses: as proof that the future of fashion is to be found in its past.” Adele Dejak
