Moses Mckenzie is an eccentric stylist and model from Nairobi, Kenya. He started his freelance modeling career in 2013, after he found it initially hard to break into the industry, he had to switch up his approach by employing a different art to his styling.
Moh adopts the Afrofuturism paradigm in coming about his looks, taking everyday objects and using it to accentuate his style ensembles. He founded his style collective with Clint Malik when they were still teenagers and they have gone on to work with sevral top fashion-style photographers in Kenya and to even feature on Vogue.
Moh features on our Fashion Dazzler series this week.
