Sunny Dolat & The Nest Collective
Sunny Dolat is a Kenyan fashion stylist, creative director, and production designer. In 2012, he co-founded The Nest Collective, a multidisciplinary Kenyan squad working with film, fashion, visual arts, and music. The Nest started out as a gathering place for young and emerging creators in Nairobi who were interested in the intersections between poetry, feminism and queer theory, design and technology. In 2017, he was creative director of the book ‘Not African Enough’, that asserts the right of African designers and artists to step out of the narrow confines of what the world considers to be African. It presents a collection of words and images from emerging Kenyan designers who are contributing to the shifting aesthetic of the country.
