There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up – John Holmes
It has become a Kenyan fashion industry staple.
Over the past few years, Zen Gardens has played host to some of the most elegant, daring fashion seen anywhere in the region at its eponymous Fashion High Tea.
It’s one of those events that truly only gets better as those in attendance become increasingly comfortable with the idea of couture and their right to rock it!
What better chance do you have over the course of the year to be a haughty snob and actually get away with it? Celebration of collections and accessories by designers make it a great way to champion the local fashion industry while also taking cues from what’s happening on the international scene.
This year, however, the event will be about more than just a celebration of what is beautiful externally, but internally as well.
Two charitable causes will be in the spotlight:

– a home that educates, nurtures and transforms the lives of abandoned and orphaned children.
