Thrift Social 9 installation took place at the rooftop of Privee in Westlands, Nairobi, on Sunday.

The event offered art enthusiasts another opportunity to interact and express their artistic freedom in fashion.

Curators, siblings Velma Rossa and Papa Petit, had encouraged fans to come in the most creative and bold pairs of shoes.

The event was graced by Key South African fashion icon and founder of The Social Market, Maitele Wawe.

Maitele, who is also significant member of the street style crew Fashion Rebels, was not left out of the days intrigues as he brought one of the afternoon's most extraordinary looks.

Attendees certainly got styled up in their best sneakers, some even customising their shoes to fit the occasion.

The range of shoes on display at the installation brought about different perspectives of creativity among the revellers.

South African fashion-conscious artiste Muzi turned up the crowd with his awesome music mix on the wheels of steel.

Also on the decks were Kenyan deejays Taio, Mixmaster Lenny and Butchnorman.
