The Return Of The Rude-Boy

This is a tribute to Kevo Abbra’s father by his former friends and colleagues in the tailoring industry in the ghetto who began fusing their own designs with the readily available thrift-store collectables. Every now and then they set up tribute shows in different hoods in Nairobi and model their latest collections, a testimony to the visionary that he was. The following are images from their Tribute Show in Kibera.
