EVELYNE OGUTU spoke with fashion designer EVELYNE AKINYI ODONGO as she shared the ups and downs of the industry
As the curtain closed on the 6th Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES), one fashion designer is excited about the opportunity that the summit bestowed her – to interact with the leading lights in the world of entrepreneurship and innovation.
Evelyne Akinyi Odongo, Managing Director, MEFA Creations, is among the chosen few entrepreneurs who exhibited at the Kenya House in the United Nations compound in Gigiri where President Barack Obama addressed the over 3,000 business leaders drawn from all over the world.
Although our interview was scheduled to take place at 2:30pm at her studio off Riara Road, the lady who goes by Akinyi sent an email at 10:39pm the night before, asking that we bring forward the interview to 9:30am. The organisers of the GES, have asked her to be at KICC by 12 noon for security clearance.
