The Vivo Fashion Group journey began 12 years ago and has grown to 27 stores worldwide, the latest of which we opened today in Atlanta, Georgia. It was founded by Wandia Gichuru and Anne Marie Burugu in 2011. Within 12 years, the Vivo is East Africa’s largest ladies' fashion brand, designing and manufacturing 100% on the African continent. More importantly, we aim to inspire a whole generation of African fashion entrepreneurs.

Kenya has a rich cultural heritage with diverse traditional attires and textiles that have influenced modern fashion trends. The colorful prints, beadwork, and intricate designs from various Kenyan communities have served as inspiration for contemporary fashion designers. In the past two decades, there has been a surge of talented Kenyan fashion designers who have gained popularity both locally and internationally.

Furthermore, Kenya has a growing textile and apparel manufacturing industry, which has contributed to the development of the fashion sector. Several textile mills and garment factories operate in the country, providing employment opportunities and supporting local fashion brands.  There are fashion and design institutions in Kenya, such as the University of Nairobi's Department of Design and the Kenyatta University's Department of Fashion Design and Marketing, that have played a crucial role in nurturing and training aspiring fashion designers and professionals.
