Nairobi Style: 2manysiblings’ Thrift Social 8 in Photos

Some of the coolest looks from Kenyan duo 2manysiblings' wax print edition of Thrift Social in Nairobi.

Is Nairobi the flyest city in the world?


Quite possibly.

And if it is, then 2manysiblingsThrift Social is the epicenter of Nairobi fashion.

Velma Rossa and Papa Petit’s style, music and art event series returned on Sunday to Privée Westlands. This time it was a special wax print edition featuring a very special guest, Ghanaian sound and style artist Steloolive, all the way from Accra. Cosmic Homies rapper / singer / DJ / producer TAIO and Mix Master Lenny also took turns on the ones and twos. Okayafrica was once again excited to be on board as a media partner.

Kenyan brother and sister duo Papa Petit and Velma Rossa of 2manysiblings launched the Thrift Social last year as a platform for creativity and the exploration of art, music and fashion while providing inspiration for innovators in the Nairobi creative industry.
