About Us

In December 2010, Olav Arthur Mburu fresh out of high school had always been passionate about writing about fashion and in particular African fashion. He started the blog Arthur's Fashion World In Nairobi which focused solely on an African fashion theme. Later on in April 2012, Kyle D Wahome came on board as a guest writer. The blog received immense support from a large number of readers and in June 2013 both Olav and Kyle decided it was time for a change. That's when The Lifestyle Spread was founded.

The Lifestyle Spread seeks to diversify the Menswear and Lifestyle scene by offering insightful articles about various fashion labels through our personal style.

We thank our dear readers for their support and we urge you to keep it here always
