Kenyan Fashionista Sonal Maherali has launched the very first of its kind in Kenya luxury shoe line.
In several updates she made on social media, the affluent mother of four known for her show-stopping outfits and super expensive luxury items said she was living up to her maxim of: “Africa is capable of luxury”.
“Here, I’m doing in Africa what Christian Louboutin is doing in London and Paris, I know he started somewhere, and this is my somewhere,” She wrote.
Sonal who is the only Kenyan lucky enough to have hobnobbed with talented luxury shoemaker Christian Louboutin says her love for the red-bottoms blossomed into her fashion business.
Currently, her line offers two styles of shoes; a black suede loafer with her lion logo and gold sole dubbed the ‘Simba plain’
And her black and gold-detailed high-heel dubbed the ‘Simba Hills’.
She explained that her line targets the lovers of luxury and comfort from Kenyan and beyond as she seeks to cement her place in the hall of fame of Kenyan fashionistas.
The latest comes a year after she hit fashion scene with a collection of luxury tee-shirts.
There was the Salmon Warrior, Love Africa, the Risque business, The Mighty lion, Dancing Lion, Fearless Windows and Sauve winds.
Sonal, a multiple-award winning Youtuber is one of Kenya’s most popular content creators and boasts of having the most exclusive luxury collection.
The collection estimated to have cost more than Ksh.20M features among others; two Hermes Birkin Bags, A diorama by Dior, a lady dior, hundreds of designer shoes ranging from
Sabyasachi Mukherjee, Christian Loubotin, Jimmy Choo, Vera Wang among others.
