It was celebration of the East African Harvest last night at the 5th edition of Mavuno Yetu held at the Lake Victoria Serena Resort coliseum in Kigo, where African fashion and style became the main attraction taking centre stage.
It was a breath-taking sight to behold as Beautiful ladies and queens of the East African region assembled on the same stage to strut their stuff on the catwalk as the region united in celebrating fashion, food, dance, music, entertainment and culture under one roof.
Mavuno Yetu is an annual festival described as high-end celebration uniting the well endowed East African region in fashion, food, dance, entertainment and culture where guests come together as a big family to enjoy what nature has blessed us with.
This year’s highlight like most previous ones has been the presence of the beauty queens who did not only brighten the ambience with their royal smiles, but also showcased clothes by some top designers from the region with stunning catwalks that got the audience awe- struck. Some guests cheered their favourite models and beauty queens while others just sat quietly marvelling at the masterpiece designs.
The Stunning Beautiful East African queens led by host Miss Uganda 2015 Zahara Muhammed Nakiyaga, Jihan Dimachk the official Beauty Queen representing Tanzania, Miss Rwanda 2015 Dorianne Kundwa, Miss Kenya 2015 Charity Mwangi and for the first time Miss South Sudan William Grace Akan, graced the glamorous event showcasing designs by Azra Walji from Kenya and Uganda’s very own Kasule Allan Raphael proprietor of K-Rafael Couture.
There were also energetic and colourful performances from Crane performers, surprise acts Swahili Nation and Legendary Afrigo Band who entertained the guests as they devoured the variety of delicious dishes served in a mega buffet from across East Africa in a 7 course dinner.
Some lucky guests won themselves prizes in a raffle including free holidays and cosy ‘honeymoons’ in partner hotels. The happy-looking guests later departed at leisure after official proceedings closed at 1:00pm
