Franklin Saiyalel

His love for fashion was realized at the age of 10 years old and ever since his put a mark for himself in Kenya as well as outside Kenya. A happy, social and direct individual who says that he blends in well anywhere which I think is because of his personality and inviting presence. He loves the fact that he gets to attend the amazing shows that happen in the fashion world and not forgetting the fact that he gets to network with fashion legends which makes it exciting for him. He'll be talking about image and us in this particular society.
