Imari Karanja: Young, confident and hitting the big time runways
She said: “It still hasn’t sunk in for me with her reception in the fashion industry, especially the quality of shows she got accepted to. It’s very hard to do Prada, March Jacobs and Dior as your first shows.”

However, she and Imari’s father Erastus Karanja are careful to balance Imari’s modeling and her school work. Furthermore, they always travel with her to make sure she is not exploited.
Kudos to Vivian and Erastus for nurturing such a huge and natural talent! With their guidance, her future in the industry is surely bright.
