Not content to rest on his laurels, John Kaveke constantly reinvents his fashion style, experimenting in edgy design while embracing cultural integrity and sophisticated flair. Educated at Woodgrove Fashion College in Kenya and Instituto Europeo di Design in Barcelona, his designs have caught the eye of people around the world.
His designs have been seen on the catwalks in Sarajevo Fashion Week, Bosnia; Hub of Africa in Ethiopia; Swahili Fashion Week in Tanzania; M-Net Face of Africa in Nigeria; The Big Brother Africa House in South Africa; Catwalk Kenya, Festival for African Fashion; FAFA Kenya; Mercedes Benz Africa Week; the International Smirnoff Fashion Awards Arise Magazine Fashion Week in Nigeria; and London Fashion Week and Africa London fashion week.
Kaveke’s passion for fabric and design, and his desire to build a niche in the Kenyan/African fashion design market, has helped him continue to push the envelope of design to new heights. He recently collaborated with Chivas Regal, the world’s original luxury whiskey, to launch its Kenyan campaign, ‘Made for Gentlemen’.
Inspired by eight leading entrepreneurs, Kaveke was commissioned to create bespoke jackets for each of the leading personalities. The ‘Made for Gentlemen’ collection is truly smooth, bold, and classy. A tribute to the craftsmanship, attention-to-detail and passion put into the blending of Chivas.
