Introducing... The Janet Collection

As a professional appreciative of fashion, it can sometimes get daunting to obtain work wear that is stylish and different but at the same time maintains the intended level of professionalism. I really have a hard time picking work wear that speaks distinctly of my style and is conducive for my environment.

For my very first local talent feature, I would like to introduce the graceful Janet Collection by talented designer Wambui Mukenyi. I discovered her work regrettably late last year but have not stopped ogling at how different her work is. From tribal print khanga, to kitenge, there is no limitation to what her talent can design.

For this collection, Wambui addresses the working class woman looking to be different in her dressing, as well as to all the women who appreciate lady like dressing whether in formal or informal settings. This particular collection was a collaborated effort with Citizen TV news anchor Janet Mbugua, and offers stylish wear that is impeccably professional, timeless and effortlessly chic. The colours within the collection are subtle and adaptable for any work environment, a definite recommendation for those like me who seek to add colour to their work wear.


If I were to pick a favourite feature of the Janet Collection it would be in its fitting. These dresses have a simple yet elegant cut designed to fit and embrace the female curves. I am especially appreciative of how the designer highlights the waist, in a ruffle here, lapels there, to give every woman the confidence of that ideal curve.


The full range of the Janet Collection will comprise 20 different pieces and is expected to be out by end of February this year. It is definitely something to look forward to.

Meanwhile For those interested to purchase, you can contact the designer via More of Wambui Mukenyi's pieces are available on her site here.

Nice Weekend Everyone.

Love, S.S!!
